Masks are still required to shop in our store. Thank you for your consideration.

We have a lot of great Record Store Day releases still in stock. See http://go.purplenarwhal.com/rsd for the current list. Email us at info@purplenarwhal.com if you want something. Everything is also listed on our Discogs store at https://www.discogs.com/seller/purple_narwhal/profile and we're happy to ship.


If you're not familiar with Record Store Day, it is an annual event where labels and artists put out special limited releases on vinyl (and some CDs and cassettes) which are only available at independent record stores like ours. For more info go to recordstoreday.com.


You might notice there are some RSD releases that will come out later, in June. We'll have those, too, when they are available.
