Ringing tills will be music to ears of record store owners

23 April 2017, 02:14 | Nina Hammond



Record Store Day will feature the double LP "Complete Third", the third in a series of albums released in the past year.

While there's only one Record Store Day a year, the organisation works with both independent and major labels throughout the year to create contests, special releases and promotions in order to spotlight the benefits of supporting these independent, locally owned stores with music purchases throughout the year.

As Revolution only opened last July this will be the first time it is participating in Record Store day.

Since 2009, an artist has served as Record Store Day's official ambassador. "You go out to it with the right attitude, to support small business. and you also go out and support local musicians".

He said: "I love Record Store Day".

Biafra added that he hopes Record Store Day "doesn't turn into just a carnival for eBay speculators who care as little about the vinyl as they do about buying Michael Jordan shoes and not opening the box until they sell the thing years later".

It is powered by the Snapdragon 430 chipset and offers 16 GB of storage, which can be expanded with an additional 128 GB. The USB Type-C port and speaker grille are at the lower end of the phone while the 3.5mm audio jack is on the top.

Digital music has driven down sales of vinyl records and CDs for years, and many record stores have gone out of business, but that's slowly changing.

Heather Frarey moved her store, the Record Lounge, to REO Town earlier this month.

Brown doesn't think it's any coincidence that the growing popularity of vinyl records coincided with the creation of an annual event to celebrate stores with vinyl.

In addition to offering many exclusive Record Store Day releases, Matone has assembled a variety of merchandise for customers to peruse.

Wade Ogle, owner and manager of Block Street Records, said the store will have nearly all RSD releases available at the store, which will open Saturday at its usual time of 10 a.m. and close at 9 p.m. "People all over the country are sitting up and taking notice of Dundalk's music scene and we here at Classified Records are extremely proud to be able to keep the momentum going", said Neil. "You have a lot of young entrepreneurs who are seeing this opportunity", said Wes Lowe from Alliance Entertainment Corp., the nation's largest wholesale distributor of compact discs, DVDs and vinyl record albums. Hillis will play a two-hour set when the store opens at 9 a.m. "We are the only independent one left", he said. It began in 2007 when independent record store owners and employees gathered to celebrate the approximately 1,400 independently owned record stores in the United States and the thousands of stores internationally.

Sifuentes said as soon as he bought his record player, he started a collection of albums and believes vinyl is a unique way to listen to music.
