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.
