Jake Bugg, HAIM, David Bowie and Kings of Leon are among the hundreds of acts who will be putting out special releases for Record Store Day 2014.
Radio X revealed the full list of records coming out for the annual celebration of independent record stores at two special live events.
Editors frontman Tom Smith performed in Banquet Records, Kingston and Tim Burgess from The Charlatans played in Manchester's Piccadilly Records to help Radio X unveil the 600 plus records.
Record Store Day takes place on Saturday 19 April 2014, with more than 200 independent record stores around the country taking part by stocking special editions which have been released exclusively for the event and many of which are extremely limited edition.
Among the indie gems in the behemoth of a list of releases is Nottingham's finest, Jake Bugg, who will be releasing a live EP called Live At Silver Platters. Limited to 1,500 copies, it was recorded in Seattle in January.
HAIM - who recently played an intimate session for Radio X - are releasing recent single Forever, issued as a 10" single and limited to just 550 copies.
RSD favourite David Bowie, meanwhile, is releasing classic Rock n Roll Suicide from the Ziggy Stardust album as a 7" picture disc, limited to 2,500 copies.
Elbow, Green Day, Kings of Leon and Oasis are also among the records we'll be looking out for on Record Store Day 2014.
Radio X will also be releasing our own limited edition vinyl for the event, in aid of War Child.
John Kennedy's X-Posure Sessions will be available at selected participating UK Record Store Day shops and is limited to 1,000 copies.
The record features previously unreleased recordings from Toy, Savages, Drenge, Daughter and a host of other bands featured on John's X-Posure sessions over the past few years.
