Limited edition vinyl giveaways at HMV Oxford Street this week

When HMV Chairman Paul McGowan recently said that the rescued retailer had been looking to the independent sector for inspiration as it attempts to turn around the firm’s fortunes, he wasn’t joking.

And if stocking limited edition vinyl releases gets fans queuing up outside indie shops on Record Store Day, why not try the same trick to get them queuing up outside HMV’s new Oxford Street base? And that’s what’s happening this week, though HMV are giving the limited edition releases away rather than selling them.

This morning’s free release was a bit of Beatles catalogue, while later this week limited edition vinyl releases from Elvis, New Order and Robbie Williams will be dished out first come first served as HMV Oxford Street opens at 8.30am each morning.
