Re: Record Store Day April 21, 2012 - Discussion thread and poll

It's a chicken-egg thing for me. Are the records artificially scarce because of the eBayers? Look at the listings on eBay now for "record store day 2012" - there are tons of items up there, many with no bids at all because of the high starting prices. If the eBay crowd left RSD alone, there would be plenty of supply to go around, I think, even with the limited print runs. Well, for most titles - 1250 copies of a Sigur Ros record is pretty dumb.

I mean, Radiohead's King of Limbs was by far the highest selling new record last year and even then it only moved 20,000 copies of vinyl.

Vinyl is popular now, but it's still a very very small chunk of the market.

Re: Record Store Day April 21, 2012 - Discussion thread and poll

There was only one record store in my area that was even participating in Record Store Day. We got there late, but there weren't many exclusives I was interested in. They had the live Grateful Dead that I wanted, but they wanted $75 for it! It would have been less because it didn't include the 25% off discount. The store was having a 25% off new records, 50% off used sale on that day, but that was still too rich for my blood.

I still ended up making some purchases, though. I bought 3 records: Fugazi - Repater, Subhumans - The Day the Country Died, and Janis Joplin - I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again, Mama. Only the Fugazi one was new. I was pretty excited about the Janis album. I can usually find Pearl or a greatest hits collection but hadn't come across that one.

Great, I'm glad I posted the info. They tweeted yesterday that they were sold out already.

Yep, we did very well in that department at all three of our stores.
