Record Store Day - April 18


Recommended Posts

I never knew such a day existed, but according to the link, "The original idea for Record Store Day was conceived by Chris Brown, and was founded in 2007 by Eric Levin, Michael Kurtz, Carrie Colliton, Amy Dorfman, Don Van Cleave and Brian Poehner as a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally.

This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances."

Go out and buy / play vinyl!

Oops...Guess I screwed up spending 4 months transferring vinyl into my computer and then out onto cd. But...I want to HEAR the stuff and playing records is A LOT of a schlep for me.

Vinyl OR cds sure wack the poop out of mp3s though. Too much info and nuance LOST if it ain't the whole 9 yards.

And once again radio...who used to fight to establish the best quality now seem to favour computerized unattended programming and mp3s over serving an astute and demanding audience.. Why? Cause the kids don't seem to care. But then why would they when they listen to computer generated music?

No record stores left anywhere near where I live anyway.
