RSD 2016 crowd

We got some amazing love from you, our customers and friends, and some unexpected but quite welcome love from Pearl Jam (both in-store and onstage at Bon Secours Wellness Arena) and Rosanne Cash (ditto, at the Peace Center).

Miss Cash, Mr. Leventhal and staff.

We’re floored, honored, elated and exhausted. Same time next year?



Yep, we sure did get clobbered on Saturday (and Sunday), but don’t think we haven’t still got some good Record Store Day exclusives left in stock.

We’ve still got goodies by SUPERCHUNK, FLEETWOOD MAC, MUDDY WATERS, LIL’ WAYNE, LESTER YOUNG, & JOHN RENBOURN, not to mention compilations of vintage sleaze-rock (Los Alamos Grind). 60’s garage-rock (Nuggets: Hallucinations), psychedelic samba (The Rough Guide To Psychedelic Samba), and the lost rock & roll of Cambodia (Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten), among many other titles.
