Tuning in to Record Store Day in Delco

Tuning in to Record Store Day in Delco

Dozens lined up in the early morning hours to snag special vinyl releases.

"It started as a group of independent record store owners who got together with this idea to help celebrate the record stores".

Saturday is International Record Store Day and Barrie will join the festivities that reach every continent, except Antarctica.

"There's kind of a clubhouse mentality to a record store", said McGlothin, a customer and former owner of Speakertree Records.

Among special limited Record Store Day releases April 21, 2018 is Neil Young 'Roxy - Tonight's The Night Live, ' a three-sided 2-LP set recorded live at the grand opening of the famed Roxy in West Hollywood, Calif., in 1973. Although the event began in the United States, Record Store Day has official global organizers in the United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, Ireland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Mexico, Japan and Spain.

Beginning on Record Store Day, the folks at Friendly Records in Bristol have decided to make it "Record Store Weekend" with live performances from Snails, Alex Lipinski and Olive Haigh.

That means there are a slew of special, limited-edition vinyl releases to be scored.

For Record Store Day, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and The Flaming Lips collaborated on a 7-inch single with the songs "The Story of Yum Yum and Dragon" and 'Pouring Beer in Your Ear, ' composed by band frontman Wayne Coyne.

Wax Trax 638 East 13th Avenue The store, which opens at 9 a.m. on Record Store Day, recently posted on its Facebook page, "We like to think, since we have a record store, that every day is a record store day: That's over 14,000 record store days that we've had since November 1978".

"Record Store Day keeps people reminded of how music was sold back in the day before we had big box retailers and e-commerce sites selling records".

"We had queues from 3am of people waiting to get their hands on the records".

Records are gaining in popularity as new releases - as well classic albums - are issued and re-issued on vinyl.

At Nu Way Vinyl, Kirk Russell said they will have barbecue, courtesy of Smokin' on the Boulevard, a finalist in the Alabama Farmers' Federations Bama's Best Pork Ribs Contest. In that time, record sales have been increasing.

"It's a tangible way to fall in love with the music, and it puts a personality behind what they're listening to", he said. "I'm excited when they walk in excited, and there's a lot of stuff happening".

"And I'm not going to ruin that surprise; you'll have to come out and see".

The day is a celebration of the brick and mortar store, and the atmosphere is festive. "It's interesting to go to see that, if for no other reason", he said.
