Saturday is Record Store Day! Lotsa loot!
Jack White says, “I think it’s high time the mentors, big brothers, big sisters, parents, Guardians, and neighborhood ne’er do wells, start taking younger people that look up to them to a real record store and show them what an important part of life music really is. I trust no one who hasn’t time for music. What a shame to leave a child, or worse, a generation orphaned from one of life’s great beauties. And to the record stores, artists, labels, dj’s, and journalists; we’re all in this together. Show respect for the tangible music that you’ve dedicated your careers and lives to, and help It from becoming nothing more than disposable digital data.”
Neko Case says, “I love the smell of them. I love that people actually care for and know about the music they are selling.”

David and Don Was (Not Was) says, “In the beginning was the record store, more like a modern-day temple with its attendant priesthood and initiates, a holy repository of the culture’s most sacred beats and rhymes. By comparison, the internet is a clean room in a hospital — it lacks the funk and feeling of a place with floors and ceilings and racks full of soul-stirring goodness. May they persist till someone turns the lights out on this small planet! Here’s to the true believers — keep the faith, brothers and sisters!”
