Vinyl music gives record stores a boost in a digital world

Vinyl music gives record stores a boost in a digital world

Hello. I run a small label/music publisher that serves unique independent artists.

MB: I was thinking about leaving Amoeba and was approached by Darren Davis - former impresario of Tweekin' Records in the Lower Haight - about partnering up and opening a shop online, because at the time, we had no desire to open a brick-and-mortar store.

OK I have some sympathy with 1. But even when you do that, you have to send pictures with it. Let the Bieber fans have their fun!

MB: Well, I feel like people used to actually go out to dance, specifically, more than they do now. Record Store Day is a nationwide celebration of the UK's 200 plus independent record stores.

What's the strangest thing you had to press for Record Store Day this year? "If they appreciate vinyl records, I want to facilitate that". But would you rather have pressing plants scrambling to fix old broken machines, or closing? I am pretty sure pressing plants are happy about it, at least to the extent that a factory is capable of feelings. "We've always had vinyl, and we'll continue to have vinyl until whenever we close". That's good for my label but bad for them. I use a lot of social media.

The record store will open early on Saturday and shoppers will receive a tote bag filled with goodies.

Although Sound Garden is the only in-town record shop participating, there are seven other regional independent stores helping celebrate the occasion.

Tickets for Record Store Day are available from Diverse Music or Riverfront Theatre Box Office by calling 01633 656679.

Last argument why it is shit: 5. "My brother-in-law called me from San Francisco, and said, 'You're in Vogue this month man'".

Mane has been in electric form for Liverpool this season, scoring 13 Premier League goals and adding five assists in 27 appearances.

Of course, not every participating record shop will be carrying everything. Hey, my friend Michelle has loads on the wall BECAUSE SHE HAS SUNG ON THEM.

Built To Spill was incredible that night and I was up late. Stop criticising people for liking the artifact and wanting to display it, you killjoy!

Ronnie thrives on running a record shop which draws in an array of people.

"He is expecting high interest in a 7" single from The Beatles, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Penny Lane / Strawberry Fields Forever double A side; and three new releases from David Bowie.

Dr. Disc (20 Wilson, 905-523-1010, drdisc.ca) was Hamilton's first Record Store Day participant.

It's been going ten years.

In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Greensleeves label, parent company VP Records will release White Man At Hammersmith Palais, a four track vinyl EP featuring hits from Ken Boothe, Dillinger, Leroy Sibbles and Delroy Wilson. And Amazon said they sold more turntables than any other home audio product at Christmas. No need to phone the economists and management consultants.

"I love everything about them", he said, adding that his own collection was still rapidly expanding. "The release is special because these songs are cover songs put together specifically for Record Store Day on a green 10-inch vinyl record".

When speaking of Record Store Day, indie icon Nick Cave once said, "The relatively mild exertion of getting off your fat, computer-shackled ass and venturing out to find the object of your desire, the thrill of moving through actual space and time, through row upon row of records, and the tactile ecstasy of fondling the quested treasure-all this will augment and enrich the mental associations the music invokes in you for the rest of your life".
