April 29 - Record Store Day Cancelled

Record Store Day 2020 has been 'cancelled'. RSD 2020 is now scheduled to be celebrated with special, properly distanced release dates on Saturdays in August, September and October.

Record Store Day will look very different this year, but supporting indie record stores may be more important than ever. We don't know what sort of rules will be in place, or what sort of gatherings people will be in the mood for this year, so we're focusing on the music and getting the really great titles on the RSD Official List this year into the stores and into your hands, in the most financially and socially responsible way.

The titles on the RSD 2020 Official List, launched on March 5th, will be released at participating record stores on one of these three RSD Drops: August 29th, September 26th, and October 24th. The new version of The List, with newly assigned RSD Drops dates will launch on June 1 so check back here for a look at when you'll be able to pick up the titles on your RSD 2020 wishlist at your local record store. 

Two Elvis releases from from the French Elvis My Happiness / LMLR were listed, ‘Elvis Interdit!’ (‘Elvis Prohibited!’) and ‘The Forgotten Album’. These titles have been released this week. 

FTD Delayed

Roger Semon from the Follow That Dream collectors label informed dealers that the orders for the 'Kid Galahad Sessions' and 'Elvis: St. Louis and Spokane' releases have been entered into the system, but have not yet been picked or packaged due to the limited workforce capacity. 

Graceland Temporary Closure

In line with the Coronavirus Guidelines for America and CDC guidance and with the absolute best interest of our guests and staff in mind, Graceland will be extending its closure through May 20 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This temporary closure includes morning walk ups to Meditation Garden. We will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as needed. Please continue to check this page and our social media for updates.

From our Graceland Family to yours, we wish everyone around the world health and happiness. We look forward to welcoming you back to Graceland soon.
