What makes Record Store Day so
important?

Exchange1
It is important because for one day a
year, music fans who prefer to listen to music on vinyl are
“rewarded” with special releases that “validate” their interest
in and passion for vinyl recordings. Many of the manufacturers
(who are equally passionate about music in this format) go the
extra mile to release albums, EPs and 7″ singles that would
otherwise never exist. The releases are often beautifully
packaged and in many cases are pressed in unusual shapes and/or
colors, and because they are strictly limited production runs,
these albums are very exciting to “hunt down.” Many fans visit
several stores on Record Store Day to search for the item(s)
they want!

What was the first record you ever
bought?

Exchange2
“Cathy’s Clown,” by the Everly Brothers
(on the green Warner Bros. label). This was soon
followed by “Monster Mash” by Bobby “Boris” Pickett!

Why is physical retail so
important?
You cannot “download” the opportunity to
gather with like minded people who share your passion for
music. Physical retail provides a place to gather, socialize
and perhaps discover new artists and music in an atmosphere
that just cannot be duplicated “online.”
