Record Store Day

Remember Record Store Day comes two times a year now. There's the regular Record Store Day which happens the third Saturday in April, and there's the Black Friday Record Store day (aka today, 11/25,2011), which also brings special releases to many participating record stores.

Bull Moose's Chris Brown discusses what you'll find in record stores today, in the videos below...

While I love record stores, I hope the joke of record store day does go away. What is the point of having a day where nothing you want to buy is available?

For me, you could say hummus store day is practically every day.

Record store day will only last a few more years until everyone realizes what a sham it is. Nostalgia can only take you so far.

It really does look like the major label corporates - who dumped vinyl in the 90's because CD offered a way to make everyone buy everything all over again at a higher price - exploitative behavior to try and get fans to pay $10 for a 7". And when I saw most of the product today was the Doors, the Byrds and the Beatles. it seems the corporates are trying to get us to buy the same stuff all over again one more time, as if MP3 wasn't enough.

The Bob Dylan box set is cool, I'm glad I scored one of those. $32 for four 7" records - a bit pricey, but worth it in my book. The Wilco single took me 3 stores to find it, but it's really good too. Both solid purchases!

On the other hand, I was really excited for the Beatles box set, but the CHEAPEST I saw it for was $50 - which is ridiculous for 4 7" records and a booklet. Same for the Nirvana box.

I like the idea of RSD, but it seems to be getting very corporate and some of the price gouging is reprehensible.

The gouging is quite real. Not only are consumers asked to pay $50 and up for a meager set of a few 7" records under the "limited edition" tease, but indie stores are marking those sets up even more. It's bullshit.
