Record Store Day-2019

 

Record Store Day came and went! Me and my daughter Lexie headed down to our only Record Shop here in Thunder Bay which falls under Sunrise. A National Chain that gobbled up all the HMV Stores when that company tanked…

This morning fellow blogging pals John T Snow and the one an only HMO scored a double Cheap Trick Vinyl that looked real slick.

Too be honest I wasn’t expecting much and I wasn’t disappointed as Sunrise’s Facebook Page didn’t even mention it but had a link from RSD 2018!

But we went anyways and when I got there was small section of stuff set up maybe about 20 release’s like Mumford and Sons(Gah) and three picture discs on the shelf  of Rush’s Hemisphere’s going for $45 Canadian each! No thanks I’ll pass…

Mikey Ladano  mentioned to me earlier today  about Glorious Sons having a double live album out. That intrigued me as I have been meaning to check em out for a while now and why not make my first real introduction to their music than it being a Double Live Album!

Only problem is the Glorious Sons Double Live was going for $60 Canadian.. umm I’ll pass…

I get it that’s the way it is..Limited edition’s are going to cost ya..

I mentioned to Lex that Sunrise should capitalize and lower the cost for one day the regular cost on their albums that have been sitting in there  bIns for days/weeks/months….

Nope not happening…

So after we left Sunrise we split and I went back to my familiar place for vinyl and spent my cash on Three Used Albums at Moon Money Vintage!

KISS-The Elder. Triumph-Thunder 7 and Hear N Aid!

Man, Hear N Aid I only ever bought on cassette tape back upon its release so …kinda psyched to get these added to the collection…

As I was paying for my scores I was talking to store owner Martha who after some small talk said  that the shop was thinking of doing a RSD but just ordering stuff for customers who they know won’t stiff them. As I was paying for my records I told Martha that I would rather support and pay a local business as opposed to a Chain…

If it’s gonna cost me for limited editions I would rather support Local Business…

Great idea! As I told her on the way out I would be totally up for that as the ‘Corporate Store’ doesn’t give a Shit!

Cheers for Local Business! Support em if you can!
