Record Store Day

Happy Record Store Day... yesterday.  This is our first one living in a town with an actual record store. We visited, I bought some records (2 that I already have in the ol' iPod, but hey, I have to get them on vinyl eventually), and it was a good day.  :)

How about you?  Did you participate in Record Store Day?  I love any excuse to buy new (or old) records.

  3. We celebrated here in Somerset, England, and got to our local store just after 7am to pick up the releases we wanted. Such a great atmosphere :) I blogged about it too if you'd like to read :)

  8. I didn't even know there is something like record store day, although if I buy music I buy vinyl. And I totally agree, having something on the i-pod doesn't mean you don't need it on vinyl. It's just not the same.

  9. So pleased to see you support Record Store Day, Katie! :)

    We celebrated good, here in the Yorkshire, UK too! Lovely day spent with friends buying music and relaxing together in the afternoon listening to our new goodies!

  11. I got the 'Kentucky' 7" by Jake Bugg released just for the occasion and the re-release of Tame Impala's first EP. I was a very happy buyer! I see you got the Portishead record - a friend of mine didn't have such luck!

  13. Yes I participated this year for the first time here in Liverpool. Laid my hands on a Pulp remix by Soulwax, good stuff ;) I didn't know Alberta Cross so I've checked some songs and I like it! Thanks for the discovery :)

  14. I went! I was really hoping to get Mumford & Sons' limited EP they released specifically for Record Store Day (called Live at Bull Moose), but missed out :( I did get their album Babel though (which I too have on iPod already). I probably would have bought more, but I'm on limited funds at the moment. It's so great to support a local business though! Our record store actually had a free concert at the downtown cemetery too, but I didn't get a chance to go.

  15. I went! Unfortunately, my local record store doesn't sell new albums on vinyl. So I didn't get to get any of the limited edition ones that come out special for Recordstore day. But I still am IN LOVE with old records! So I searched through and found Simon and Garfunkel, Bridge Over Troubled Water and picked it up! It was a good day. (:

  16. What is this!? I've never heard of Record Store Day in Australia, but if it was a thing I would DEFINATELY participate! There's something special about vinyl.

  21. We celebrated Record Store Day too - we were so excited that our small local store had gotten in a few of the special releases. We walked away with the Mad Season release and then a few other's we had been interested in getting our hands on for sometime.

    Our store had live music and locally made ice cream it was a great treat.

  26. I went and snatched up Billy Bragg's and Phoenix's RSD special releases from my local record shop. I was a bit bummed that I missed out on the Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds one, though. I also bought a Joy Division album and Depeche Mode's latest release. Got to listen to some great local music while I shopped, too.

    Love Record Store Day!
