Arctic Monkeys, Enter Shikari and Graham Coxon are among the artists who've revealed the records that changed their life to NME.

In this week's special Record Store Day preview issue, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally now, the likes of The Vaccines, Frank Turner, The Horrors, Blood Red Shoes, The Maccabees and a host of other top names reveal the releases that changed everything for them.

Arctic Monkeys' frontman Alex Turner chose Shirley Bassey's 'Big Spender', which he owns on vinyl, while his bandmate Matt Helders named The D4's '6twenty', saying of it: "I know it wasn't massive, but it came out at an important time for me as it came out just when I was learning the drums."

The Horrors' Faris Badwan, The Maccabees' Felix White and Frank Turner are among the other artists who reveal the discs that they hold dearest, along with members of The Vaccines, Mystery Jets and all three of The Cribs.

The issue also features a comprehensive guide to this Saturday's (April 21) Record Store Day, including details of the all the special releases and free gigs happening to coincide with the celebrations.
