The Ledge #617: Record Store Day

I know the event has plenty of naysayers, but I absolutely love Record Store Day. I love the ritual of standing in line with other record nerds of all ages, and discussing exactly what treats we’re looking for. Even standing in line to pay, a task I generally dread at any retailer, is full of great chats.

And then there’s the actual music. As somebody who loves vault material – demos, outtakes, live recordings, early mixes, etc. – it’s a day of treasures. There’s also a ton of records you never expected to see reissued, and there is always a number of 60s garage rock compilations.

This year was no exception, and tonight you see the results of last Saturday’s early morning search. What did you guys find? Let me know what treats you picked up!
