Record Store Day 2019

For those of us who collect or collected 3” 8-ban records from Japan, there hasn’t been much news since the White Stripes released their last 3” record in early 2006. That’s why it was so exciting in January 2019 when the Crosley RSD3 was announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) with the promise of new 3” releases in the style of 8-ban (with the same spindle holes which means the new releases will also play on an original Bandai 8-ban record player).

Japan

All-told there will be at least 24,000 new 3” records being produced and sold for Record Store Day, making RSD 2019 the single most signficant day in the history of the 3” format since Bandai’s original 8-ban release in 2004.


  1. It’s unclear whether the pressing number of the Foo Fighters pack-in includes the ones being sold with the RSD3 player, or if there will be 5,000 individual records available in addition to the 4,000-4,500 Crosley players sold on Record Store Day.
