I make it a rule each year to never venture out on Black Friday. I just can’t deal with the crowds and I have done my stint as a retail sales person many years earlier. Its left its scars. But now I have a raison d’etre to defy that tradition 😉
Attention vinyl junkies and music collectors of all ages/genders. Record Store Day Black Friday Edition is happening on Friday November 25, 2011.
I highly recommend that you support your local record store on Record Day Black Friday (well every day actually). Black Friday will be celebrated by approximately 900 independently owned record stores/shops in the USA, Canada, France, Germany, Holland and the UK.
So do you see anything that interests you to venture out on Black Friday? I did and then some… (look below) 😉
The major contributor to Record Store Day is the reissue label company, Sundazed. Sundazed Music Inc. has been around since 1989. They do a fantastic job of coordinating reissues with the major labels such as Sony/BMG Legacy, Arista Records and Verve Records. Browse on over to their Web site and drool at what they offer record collectors. You’ll be amazed at the breadth and depth of their catalog.
Take a look at the Sundazed Record Store Day Black Friday page here.
I plan to write a more extensive blog post, if not a feature article about what Bob Irwin of Sundazed is accomplishing. Heck I might even make a road trip up to Coxsackie, NY. Now that would be a fun pilgrimage.
When Black Friday comes
I’ll collect everything I’m owed
And before my friends find out
I’ll be on the road
Pictured below are some of the treasures I’ll be hunting for on Record Store Day Black Friday. Wish me luck 😉
