SWAG SATURDAY returned to Horizon, and Greenville helped us pay it FORWARD for food and warmth with donations for the TRIUNE MERCY CENTER while we gave away an assortment of vinyl, sampler CD’s, posters & more!

Horizon Records partnered with our pals at iongreenville and once again asked Greenville to join us and pay it FORWARD for Food and Warmth on Small Business Saturday! All day Saturday, Horizon Records celebrated Small Business Saturday and Greenville responded big time, bringing Food (non-perishables only), Warmth (need blankets, caps, gloves, socks) and of course deductible Cash or Checks, all in support of TRIUNE MERCY CENTER, who bring desperately needed assistance to those in need in the season of Thanksgiving and all year round. We’re blown away by the amount of help, kindness and holiday generosity you brought through our doors. We thank you again.

 

THE SWAG: We are giving away a ton of nifty, fun and sometimes collectible swag items we have accumulated as a music store in exchange for any donation to these 3 coffers. Freebies include, CD Samplers, Vinyl LP Test Pressings, Posters and more.

Triune, with Pastor Deb Richardson-Moore at the helm, is on the frontline bringing spirituality and the services that so many hard-hit people need to get back on their feet or recover; the homeless, the hungry, the struggling addicts and others. Triune, just down 3 blocks from our corner provides a safe haven and a friendly respite day in day out for those who need it most, whether through food bank, classes or allowing a myriad of 12-step program meetings to use their rooms.

Mr. Gene broke the whole thang down for WYFF for last year, and you can view that video HERE.

Horizon Records, so grateful that we are able to still be on our corner (now celebrating 41 years), feels that all businesses are partners in our communities, and that sharing is the best way to show our thanks and in the process help others. SO we will have 2 big boxes set out and a donation jar in hopes that each of our customers, neighbors or just anyone wishing to pay it forward in this season of family, food and hearth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last year your generosity created a whole pickup truck-load of stuff. Join us in this worthy Thanksgiving-season project and let’s get 3 truckloads to transport over to Triune Mercy Center.

 

 

SWAG SATURDAY is brought to you by HORIZON RECORDS and iongreenville!

 

 

 

  • NEW RELEASES, 6/22: KAMASI WASHINGTON, DAWES, NINE INCH NAILS, DAVE KOZ, T. HARDY MORRIS and more!
    On Heaven and Earth, Washington continues to explore a sweet spot between artistry and approachability. Whether his success will lead audiences to further explore music that usually exists on the fringes is an interesting question. What is more certain is the quality and accessibility of his own music. Heaven and Earth feels writhingly alive and passionate, angrily of the moment but inclusive.
  • NEW RELEASES: ARTHUR BUCK, BUDDY GUY, ISABELLE FAUST, GASLIGHT ANTHEM, JOHNNY MARR, and more!
    Former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and often-experimental singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur have teamed up for an album that was written mostly in a few days after a chance encounter in Mexico and recorded nearly as quickly. Fresh and spontaneous, it's also filled with precious sonic details, like little flashes sparking the songs. Unsurprisingly, Buck's layers of acoustic guitars and bright and brief solos provide numerous R.E.M. textures
  • YAMAHA NATURAL SOUND A-700 INTEGRATED STEREO AMPLIFIER
    A classic “hoss” circa 1983/84. 100 watts per channel! Has phono input.
  • BOSE 901 SERIES V SPEAKERS WITH BOSE 901 SERIES V ACTIVE EQUALIZER
    The essentially crossoverless design gives the 901 an unmistakable coherence, the model’s greatest strength. Its incredibly wide dispersion comes in a close second. The Bose 901s sound great anywhere in the room, After extensive listening, the Bose 901s strike me as being damn good. They have some limitations, but don’t all $1,400 speakers? For that matter, what $10,000 speakers are perfect? They are so smooth and musical.
  • SANSUI FR-D35 SEMI-AUTOMATIC DIRECT TURNTABLE
    A new stylus has been installed on the vintage AT cartridge and all features of the table work perfectly!
  • SANSUI SR-525 DIRECT DRIVE TURNTABLE
    Excellent working and sounding Sansui SR-525 full manual direct drive turntable. A new stylus has been installed, and the cartridge has been properly aligned in the headshell according to Sansui specifications. This is a very heavy table with great Sansui build quality.
  • BOZAK CS4000 mod speakers, omg!! these big-boys ROCK!
    8 tweeters, 1 midrange and 2 woofers per. all original, very clean. extremely rare and VERY AMAZING sound!
  • EPI A110 SPEAKERS: 2-way, classic bookshelf charmers! Sound great, woofers rebuilt like new!
    2-way, classic bookshelf charmers! Sound great, woofers rebuilt like new. Circa 1980’s Epicure Productions vintage feature 8”woofers. Critically acclaimed in their day and still sound good, audiophile delivery without the high dollar price. Full-on ready, great sound, woofers rebuilt like new!
  • TASCAM 102 CASSETTE DECK!
    So fresh and so clean! This deck is in great shape and sounds like a champ. Bust out those old bootlegs and mixed tapes.
  • VINTAGE RARE SAE MARK XXXI SOLID STATE STEREO POWER AMPLIFIER WORKS GREAT! SOUNDS GREAT!
    Unit is in really nice physical condition. Recently gone through, tested and checked, all functions have been tested and work great! ready to rock with a pre-amp!
  • ADVENT LAUREATE Mini Tower Speakers
    amazing sound, brilliant natural refined listening experience. woofers on both speakers just completely rebuilt better than new! The Advents, both large and small, sounded pretty good and gave excellent value for the money. The company was one of a long string of companies that descended from the original Acoustic Research (AR). Advents eventually lost their enormous popularity and nearly faded away. International Jensen, a company based in the Chicago suburbs, rescued Advent and resurrected it. The Advent model we tested deserves a Ph.D. Advent appropriately names it the Laureate. The Laureate overwhelmed my skepticism that a modestly priced floor-standing loudspeaker could deliver good sound
