What's a record store?

NewportBarGuy: What's a record store?


 "It's a big building with records, but that's not important right now."

So the next Bob Dylan Bootleg Series set will concentrate on the Self Portrait era.

Awesome!

The contractual obligation recordings?

Misfits and Lemonheads "Skulls" split 7"? I would pick that up...

AliceBToklasLives: The contractual obligation recordings?

/oh wait, nevermind, those were released


I think you're thinking of the Dylan album, which was released because Columbia claimed they were owe another album, but really it was a "fark-you" for leaving the label.  Dylan said they weren't and when he re-signed with Columbia in the mid-1970s, it was deleted.

Self Portrait was all Bob's work, and it's always felt like it was lacking context.  There's some great stuff on there that most people have never heard because received wisdom says the album sucks.

Much as I like Jack White, I'm mostly excited about the new Flaming Lips album, out on the 13th I believe.

Because it isn't the full list. The full list is linked within the linked article:

Well, at least I dont have to worry about forking out any money for new music for the rest of this year.

I've always dismissed his albums between John Wesley Harding and Blood on the Tracks (except New Morning + a few singles).  Maybe it's time for another listen.

Got about half dozen must-haves this year, but this easily one tops the list:
Sir Douglas Quintet / Interpreta en Espanol / SUNDAZED

Love me some vintage SDQ like I love the barley pop and the sticky green. NEVER seen an original of this so I'm stoked.

/also the PIL Public Image reissue 7" in newsprint sleeve on LITA
//and the Big Star outtakes double LP - damn!

Long been one of my favorites. It gets about as much love as The Second Coming, for reasons I do not understand.

Never hear the Lemonhead song.

Let's see, I can spend an hour driving to an actual record store, try to walk and browse through an overcrowded store filled with hipsters, all to buy an obsolete format OR I can sit at home, browse new releases, listen to them as I please, purchase them and download them and send them to my iPod within that same time frame.

I get it, it's good to support local businesses, but record stores are a dying concept.  They have been on life support for years and it will be sad to see them go, but at the same time, good riddance.

I've never been in a record store that wasn't a cramped, filthy little hole that wasn't next to impossible to shop.  The clerks don't know the inventory, and few of them actually know that much about music.  Even worse is when you try to get help and the clerk acts like a snobbish prick.

It's also not fun to buy stuff that's supposedly new, and then finding later that it's been manhandled to hell because there was only one copy and that was the one they managed to scratch while putting it in the CD player for a listening booth.  Or you bought that record because it was the last one left and you know you'd never see it again if you didn't pick it up...banged up sleeve and all.

So fark record stores.

That's a lot of angst over a format you don't use.

I've used vinyl for ages and used to go to record stores several times a week.  I don't miss any of it.

@ Glitchwerks - High troll score in the thread so far: 10/10! Winner winner chicken dinner!!

Started working behind the counter in a record store in 1984. Still working in the biz [distro] to this very day. Been buying vinyl since the early 70s and am enthusiastic about new music as ever. Sorry you've had such a lousy experience buying music person-to-person over the years. The whole bit about having to "spend an hour driving to an actual record store" says more about where you live and the people populating said area than anything else. Pity you. Gotta whole orchestra of tiny violins playing the saddest song I know for you right now.

/Boo hoo!
//Boo!
///"So fark record stores."  No, fark you.
////yeah there's a LOTTA crap this year - just like there is every year, but discerning buyers know that. And discerning sellers don't give attitude cuz we want to turn you on to neat music and we want you to come back and enjoy it with us.....

I live outside of Atlanta.  Tower Records was the only truly decent place to shop.  Criminal, Wax 'n Facts are just messes.  And, yes, I know that one of the guys from Criminal is party responsible for Record Store Day.

Top Geezer: Pity you. Gotta whole orchestra of tiny violins playing the saddest song I know for you right now.


Send the orchestra home, because buying music is better than ever, no record stores needed.

Those stores stocked a very, very limited selection.

Really?  the HMV here in Philly was 25,000 sq ft on two floors, and the Tower (which didn't have as good a selection, as they stocked a lot of books and magazines) was easily 15,000.

95% of what I listen to is digital, but I have a select few LPs that I enjoy far more than their mp3/FLAC/CD counterparts. Mostly jazz, though. It's the genre that to my ear really benefits from wax and a good pair of speakers.

But I get what you say about the hipsters in record stores. Vinyl should be about sound and in some cases tradition; not your deliberately under-produced garage band that calls all the stray cats to your apartment thinking it's a feline orgy. That sh*t sounds just fine on .mp3 (well, as good as it can sound).

If you can't genuinely hear a subtle but vastly enjoyable difference between John Coltrane on vinyl vs. CD, there's no point in doing it other than trying to impress your hipster friends. It's an annoying format that's easily damaged and eventually wears out. But every now and again (probably once a month) I come home, pour a scotch, and fire up my jazz records. It's a personal taste.

Then I spend the rest of the night blaring Amon Tobin from my laptop...

The HMV here was a small store in Lenox Square Mall.  Better selection than a Sam Goodys, but still on the limited side.

Tower was a much bigger store, especially when they moved to a new location.

I stab my own ears, in rich stereo.
Doesn't matter what you listen to after that.

A bunch of limited release vinyl records that will end up on ebay at ridiculous prices.....I will pass.  Have at it hipsters.
 
2013-03-24 02:17:12 AM
I guess I like the concept of this, but honestly my music buying as of late has been mostly restricted to direct downloads from local and independent bands via Bandcamp. Barring that, I'll order directly from the label. But we have a couple of decent record stores in town that I'd like to support, so maybe I'll check it out. I doubt I'll be buying anything on the list, but maybe I'll grab something by a local band.

I'd love to start building up a nice vinyl collection, but I just don't have the space or money right now. Maybe next year.

1/10.  You've never been to Sonic Boom in Ballard, or Bop Street, or Easy Street in West Seattle, or any record store in the PNW, have you?  :)  Maybe we have it better up here, but we gots some beautiful record stores...

Nope, just the crummy stores in Atlanta.

I too had about 1,000 records.  Around 5,000 CDs.  Now everything fits on a hard drive in the palm of my hand.

I have a lot of music on my computer and other devices as well, but I love the smell of records, the cratedigging, and the beautiful artwork and liner notes that just seem to work better in a 12" by12" format.  I had a bunch more records, but went through a year of unemployment, so I went through my stacks and sold off the stuff that I never listened to, or bought as part of larger purchases.  Made enough money to be comfortable till I was able to get working again.  Now,  that is something you'll never be able to do with a digital file:   use it as an investment. Any how, if you make it up this way, consider bringing some cash just for record shopping, or just make sure to set aside some time to check out the record shops!

Not according to Google Maps; it's a good ten miles from anything that can be called an urban area.  I understand your confusion, though: almost all of Atlanta is suburbia.

/ten miles from CC Philly and you're out of city limits entirely.
