    To support Record Store Day on April 16th, Capitol/EMI will release limited edition vinyl titles from The Beach Boys and Syd Barrett, to be sold exclusively by participating independent music retailers across the U.S.

    The Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations"/"Heroes and Villains" will be released as a limited edition double 78RPM vinyl single set with the songs' original single release mixes on one disc and alternate versions of both songs on the other disc.

    An Introduction to Syd Barrett will be released as a limited edition, 180-gram double vinyl LP package with gatefold jacket and printed inner sleeves. The collection, executive produced by David Gilmour, was released on CD and digitally in November 2010, bringing the tracks of Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett together for the first time on one compilation.

    Will you be shopping your face off on Record Store Day on April 16th? You better be! Remember Tower Records!
