A number of classic rock artists highlight the list of exclusives on tap for Record Store Day 2015, which takes place on April 18.

Look for new vinyl from David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, the Kinks and Robert Plant. A whopping seven Bruce Springsteen albums will also see limited album reissue. Foo Fighters are issuing an exclusive 10" called Songs From the Laundry Room, focusing on never-before-heard tracks and demos. The Small Faces are featured in four exclusive releases, including an alternate single mix of "Afterglow of Your Love."

Elsewhere, there are two items of interest for fans of early Genesis, including a vinyl reissue of founding guitarist Anthony Phillips' solo debut, which features appearances by both Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins. Also included on the release list are Deep Purple, Iggy Pop, Jethro Tull, the Yardbirds, the Moody Blues and the Who -- the latter of whom will see their most recent single issued on colored vinyl.
