Every year since 2008, droves of music enthusiasts have traveled to independent record stores around the world to shop for rare and exclusive releases—and to show their appreciation for vinyl culture. Now in its ninth year, Record Store Day is set to kick off on April 16, and organizers have just announced the list of special releases, Rolling Stone reports.

Highlights from the extensive offerings include: three David Bowie releases (a The Man Who Sold the World 12-inch picture disc, an I Dig Everything - The PYE Years 1966 12-inch vinyl, and a 7-inch picture disc of TVC15), a 25-year reissue of the Sublime cassette-only album Jah Won't Pay The Bills on cassette and vinyl, a 7-inch of Bob Dylan’s Melancholy Mood EP that was previously only available in Japan, live recordings from several bands, and a vocal album released by the estate of the late J Dilla, titled The Diary. There are also several new releases landing on shelves for Record Store Day for those who are into contemporary music.

The Record Store Day website offers a list of each release in alphabetical order by band name as well as a nine-page printable list [PDF] that you can take with you on the morning of April 16.
