Record Store Day 2014

Today is Record Store Day Go support something cool.

I can’t remember the first record I bought, but I do remember the thrill of some purchases.

Starring at the cover of Raw Power and thinking “Who is this madman?”

Bringing home the Sex Pistols album knowing my parents would hate it.

Waiting for the store to open so I could buy London Calling the day it came out.

Buying Rock n Roll Animal at Sam’s and not realizing tax wasn’t included in the price

And so it goes. So many more. A download just doesn’t have that thrill. If you’re in Toronto, Rotate This, Soundscapes, Sonic Boom, She Said the Boom, and many others are no doubt setting out their wares even as you read this.

Enjoy.
