Happy Record Store Day!!!
Good morning vinyl junkies! Happy Record Store Day to you all. For those of you who do not know, twice a year, (April and November) the industry celebrated independent record stores by releasing limited edition collectors vinyl from a wide variety of artists. The list year is very good with new vinyl from a lot diverse acts. Highlights being the first time Metallica's Beyond Magnetic EP will be available on vinyl....silver vinyl! There's a box set of disturbed's 5 studio albums (very limited) The black keys double vinyl of their newest album, a 7x7" + 2CD of the Pharcyde's 1991 debut a Bizarre Ride To Tha Pharcyde and a 3x10" of Lee "Scratch" perry to name just a few. This weekend also finds yours truly going to a record show on Sunday. Last year's record fair was excellent and I walked away with a lot of great stuff. I am hoping tomorrow will result in the same. But for today, get out to your local independent retailer and pick up some new music and some collector's items. This year you can find an app for Record Sore Day for your iPhone or Android. Finally and by no means least, Mr. Iggy Pop is the ambassador for RSD2012 and today is also his birthday so a Happy Happy Birthday to Iggy Pop and Happy Record Store Day everyone! Check back later this weekend for my recent finds and possibly a review.
