Record Store Day

Saturday was the 4th annual Record Store Day. Full of exclusive releases, cool sales and live performances, it’s a music lover’s version of Christmas. I got to my local record store at 8:30 (opened at 9) and was 161st in line. But, I was able to get pretty much everything I wanted save for a few albums that weren’t really high on my list anyways. Here is a complete list of grabs:

-Jenny And Johnny / Gram Parsons & The Fallen Angels featuring Emmylou Harris-Love Hurts
-Ryan Adams & the Cardinals-Class Mythology EP-7″
-Doors-Riders On The Storm
-Jackson, Michael-“Hollywood Tonight / Behind The Mask”-7″
-Dennen, Brett B Side To The D Side-7-inch
-Nathaniel Rateliff-Shroud
-Rhymesayers Picture Disc
-Hendrix, Jimi-“Fire”/”Touch You”(previously unreleased)-7” Vinyl
-Hendrix, Jimi-“Fire”/”Touch You”(previously unreleased)/”Cat Talking To Me-CD
-Spektor, Regina-Four From Far
-Adele-Rolling in the Deep (Jamie XX Shuffle)/Rolling In the Deep (Live at World Café)

I ended up going to 4 different stores in the Minneapolis area. While there, I also caught 3 sets by local musicians and was able to record them. The following one was recorded at Hymie’s Vintage Records. It’s a really cool record store (and they do only carry vinyl), and April 16th was also named Hymies Vintage Records day in Minneapolis. This set is by a musician named Erik Koskinen, who’s music really reminds me of the old country singers from the 50’s/60’s with a rock flare. Weird description, I know, but it makes sense when you hear him.
