If you love Amoeba, you no doubt know what Record Store Day is at this point. But did you know that RSD comes with its own ambassador of vinyl goodness? Yes, it's true, and this year's highly regarded representative is none other than the Prince of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne!

This year's RSD falls on Saturday, April 16th and on that day you'll be able to pick up a huge range of special to RSD limited releases from zillions of artists, but from Ozzy you'll find a special 7" of "Flying High Again," plus 30th Anniversary vinyl editions of Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman.

Stay tuned for many more RSD details as the date gets closer! To check out past RSD madness at all three Amoebas, click here.
