Since a number of people do celebrate the Record Store Day, last Saturday event was attended by several of them since it was the day’s celebration. As the celebrations went on, there was a lot of excitement from all over the world. Since most people were eyeing this event, it is evident that a number of Vinyl collection points were buzzing with the hype as people were waiting for the RSD exclusive’s. Before the time was due, my local shops did post pictures of their shipments. One of the fascinating experiences is when you see people lined up for the collection even before the time is due. One of the things that have really changed to something bigger is the Record Store day which was specifically designed for the independent music store. For the major labels to release the overhyped limited pressing, this was a perfect day for them. For the pressing provided to the shops, you should note that the shops will always have a limited say.
For a number of shop owners, years back they were not allowed to sell the most in demand but instead they had to purchase the dumbs first. It is hurting to know that for some years before, you would have lost some money on the major exclusives. There are a number of problems that are associated with the major exclusives despite the fact that they are good. Record stores doors will not be darkened unless it is a Record day store. For these record stores to make profits, you are assured that they will rush to the internet with inclusive once the day arrives. The record Store Day that seemed a celebration were turned into a hectic scene by the flippers. This was contributed by the inflated demand, limited supply as well as the bitterness from the fans.
The various collection groups began sharing the news as the events was going on. One of the things that you will be surprised to realize is the fact that most people in the vent ran and pushed each other to get a copy of the exclusive while other snatched from each other’s hands. It will be important therefore to ensure that you order new records from the neighborhood records rather than scrounging the internet for the lowest prices. Despite the fact that this would cost you a little more, it is worth spending to ensure that your local shop is going. One of the things that you should consider advocating for is the availability of the Record Store Day more than once a year to ensure that the independent music stores get the best.
