Record Store Day 2011: My Wish List
04/03/11 at 02:43 PM by prefix-core
I'm posting this in an effort to remind myself what needs to be purchased on Record Store Day.

Circa Survive - Appendage CD
Deftones - Covers LP
Foo Fighters - Medium Rare LP
Green Day/Husker Du - Don't Want to Know If You Are Lonely 7"
Rise Against - Join the Ranks 7"
The Bouncing Souls - Live at Generation Records LP

I plan on being at Newbury Comics, waiting in line on April 18th. I got lucky last year with that Hold Steady release. If I can get the Souls live release, though? I'll be a happy boy.

What are you going to be picking up?

Record Store Day (Delayed)
04/21/10 at 07:45 PM by prefix-core
Having to work Saturday afternoon negated any shot I had at partaking in Record Store Day on the specified date. I was a bit bummed that I wasn't able to get my hands on a few of the titles as a result (mostly Hot Water Music and the Bouncing Souls, but something tells me that none of the record stores in my area were carrying those, anyway) but I had some luck today on my weekly trip to Newbury Comics.

They had plenty of copies of the live Manchester Orchestra and Weezer b-sides E.P.'s, both of which I picked up. But the real treat? The limited edition clear vinyl version of the Hold Steady's new album, Heaven is Whenever. HOLY FUCK! I was ecstatic. I snagged the last one at my store. I'm a happy boy.

Long live flipping through the records in the used bin, the vinyl shelf, and the new release rack. Seriously. Is there any better feeling than finding that out-of-print major label debut, the Japanese import live album, or an album you bought in high school but couldn't fully appreciate at the time in the used bin for $2?

Digital has it's place, of course. But there's nothing better than rushing home to listen to an album for the first time, flipping through the lyrics, and mulling over the artwork. Sigh.

So. What did you get your grubby li'l paws on? Anything special?
