Record Store Day's Black Friday Sale

I received this email from Pepperland Music in Orange, CA. Sadly, the number of indie music stores continues to dip. So I wanted to share this and hope many of you will join me in heading out to a favorite record store this coming Friday.

They are doing it again.

We will be receiving some cool limited edition LP and 45 rpm records by
U2, George Harrison, Drive by Truckers, Metallica and so many other
artists for sale November 26th, the Friday that follows Thanksgiving.

Many people are unaware of Record Store day. When they found out that
major lables issued only 1000 Rolling Stones 45's or limited Beatles
records and only for this event, they asked to be signed up on our mailing
list so we could let them know.

There is not a major push on this November event, since usually Record
Store day usually happens in the Spring.

This is from record store day and below a link for the titles. Just
remember, not every indie store will get everything!

So, get here on Friday and stock up. We remember one record that is now so
rare it went from $5.99 to $200 in just a few days. Word is out that your
local indie record store may just be the place to be this
Post-Thanksgiving-Shopping-Melee-Day, also known as Black Friday. And
that’s because indie stores across the country will be the place to get
special releases created just for you, for giving and getting this holiday
season, and they’re scheduled for release on Black Friday.

Now, this is not Record Store Day, Jr. or RSD 11 or Son of the Return of Record Store
Day. This is just a group of special releases that you can only find at
record stores. Some of them are uber-limited, some of them are available
at record stores before they’re available anywhere else. But they’re all
special, and they kind of fly in the face of what Black Friday has become,
which is “I have to shop, let’s see how fast and cheap I can get it over
with”. The magic of these pieces is that every one of them is something
someone will really LOVE to get, and you’ll really ENJOY giving. And
you’ll have the extra nice feeling of supporting a local independently
owned business during the holidays. So check out the list of titles (link
below), and keep in mind that not all stores on this page will carry
everything, so start a conversation with your local store. Or print this
out as a Wish List and hide it where your gift-giving loved ones are sure
to find it.

record store.
