Thread: Record Store Day 2016

  1. #1

    Default Record Store Day 2016

    Today is the worldwide annual Record Store Day. Remember to support your favorite local record store.
    I will be supporting the world famous Moodie's Records here in the Northeast Bronx. Does any still have any independent mom and pop record stores in their neighborhood?

    There's one record store here left in Maryland and it's called The Wiz but it's not a mom and pop record store. It's across the street from Iverson mall and I'm gonna go there in the spring of next year when I get my income tax check. I know that's a long time I gotta wait but I gotta get a couple of things fixed on my car and I owe my dad $500 for car repairs because he loaned me money. I don't go to that record store often because their music cd prices are expensive and they sell movies that are expensive. I do like a lot of the old rap and old r&b cd's they have but I buy most of my music cd's and movies from Amazon.com because their prices are cheap.

    my local record stores get so busy on record store day its not even worth going...like you basically cant even get in, much less try to browse if you make it inside
    slightly kinda off topic but we just had national free comic book day the other week too, and people were lined up around the block downtown

    Where you live at? You said record stores in your area and I didn't think there was that many record stores left LOL.

    shit, vinyl is more popular now than ever. even all the barnes n noble book stores near me sell records now, and the FYE in the mall. I've never seen records be more accessible.

    I live in Grand Rapids MI though
    the most popular store downtown usually has kegs of beer and live music for record store day

    All British artists combined made more money selling vinyl than digital sales in the last year from a headline I just saw.

    they frame the covers? looks cool but yeah kinda besides the point

    tbh I never really fucked with a record player like that. I'm one of them accident prone type people, CDs & mp3s are a safer option with me

    don't make me list all the computers I managed to fuck up either lmao

    back on topic it seems that even though the number of wrecka stores has decreased here as well doesn't seem to be as dramatic as in the US

    malls offer both CDs and vinyl (vinyl market is increasing here as well). shops that specialize in one genre (we still have those!) mostly either have vinyl (EDM, hiphop) or CDs (metal)

    There aren't any record stores anymore where I live. The choices I have are Best Buy and the Internet.

    I'm guilty of this, I collect vinyl and a lot of it still has the plastic on it. I do own a record player though but rarely play the vinyl.

    My mom has a record player and it's nice because it also has a cd player. I was listening to some old albums today at home.

    used this list to dig up some music from names that were previously unknown to me. thanks

    talking about The Whispers, Dazz Band, The Deele & Midnight Star

    finally got around to DLing some Frankie Beverly & Maze too. I'd heard of them, but hadn't actually heard them

    CJ I also came across a group called The Escorts. I had to DL their greatest hits just cuz of their group name lel. are they any good? I listened to one song and they sounded like a cheesy lounge version of The Dramatics (there were a lot of strings on the track)
