Chuck Berry's classic rendition of "Run Rudolph Run was originally dropped in 1958 and over the years, the holiday classic has been recorded by Lynyrd Skynyrd, Dave Edmunds, Bryan Adams, Jimmy Buffett, Sheryl Crow, and the Brian Setzer Orchestra, among others.

Here is Keith Richards version of "Run Rudolph Run",

In a statement, organisers of Record Store Day explained what the special date signifies, “We work year-round to shine a light on the independent businesses in your local community that sell you records and other things that make you happy, make you smile, make you sing, bring you comfort, bring people together. Everything you find at a record store would be a great gift for someone, so being part of that holiday shopping season, and the biggest shopping day of the year makes sense to us".

“So we work with labels, artists, managers and distribution companies who feel the same, and put together a list of titles for that season that are available at participating record stores. They come out on Black Friday but may be available at record stores throughout the rest of the year, because record stores are the best place to go with a Holiday Wish List.”
