I thought I would share what The Record Exchange and the back-rooms of thousands of other record stores look like today, just two days before the most important day for independent music retail all year. Again, a great list of products this year and I want to thank everybody involved--Michael Kurtz, Carrie Colliton, Eric Levin, Jon Berger, Perry Sherpa have all worked very hard to make the day possible. I'm honored to serve on the Record Store Day board with Michael and Eric and to see everyone's efforts come together for this important event. Artists, labels, and distributors all go through a lot of hard work to make the amazing products available--way to go everybody. All of this would not be possible if independent retail didn’t participate and support Record Store Day by not only stocking over four hundred releases but by making it a true celebration of the place independent music retail holds in local communities around the globe. This was the original intent and it continues to be the driving motivation of Record Store Day.
Have a great Saturday everyone.
