Jon from Ragged Records in Rock Island said they're doing their Record Store Day records with new guidelines.

"Line up outside to get your number at 8AM. From 9AM-11AM we'll be calling numbers and letting five customers in at a time. Masks are required and hand sanitizer will be available. The rest of the store will not be available to browse until 11AM. We know how important Record Store Day is to our customers and we're trying to do this as safe and responsible as possible. Please exercise caution when it comes to social distancing."

Ragged Records is open from 9AM - 5PM at 311 21st Street Rock Island, IL (next to Rozz Tox)


Coop Records is open on Saturday from 9am-9pm at 3727 Avenue of the Cities Moline, IL

Last month the new 7" single from Einstein's Sister came out and is now available everywhere. You can also get rare stuff from Dio, Drive-By Truckers, Ace Frehley, David Gilmour, Motorhead, My Chemical Romance, Lou Reed, Corey Taylor, U2.

They'll be requiring masks, offer sanitizing, have 6 ft spacing stickers clearly displayed for those standing in line. Normally RSD product is right inside the entrance...but now they've got it spread throughout the store to decrease crowding.


The Underground in Clinton will be open too with all sorts of rare vinyl and collectibles. If you haven't been up North for a while...make sure you stop in & check out their awesome store.
