Black Xmas?!?! A first look at RSD/Black Friday titles.

Believe me, I hate it as much as you... but I HAVE to remind you that Xmas is right around the corner.  And so it is probably a good idea to plan your special orders soon... like over the next couple of weeks... to allow enough time for the fickle fates of record distribution to rise to your demands.  Doubly so if you are ordering vinyl.  In short:  GET YOUR SPECIAL ORDERS IN TO US ASAP!

In the meantime you may know of the upcoming Record Store Day event that coincides with Black Friday (November 28th).  As with regular RSDs there are a bunch of special releases pressed up for your (and your gift giving, perhaps) amusement.  Below I'm posting the as-of-now complete major label releases for the event.

Unlike previous RSDs we're inviting special orders in a new way.  Because it's a holiday event and some of you may be planning on some of these as gifts, we will be holding whatever special orders you make, regardless of stock fill.  That is to say... three folks order Frank Zappa - "200 Motels" 7"... we maybe order 5 copies... in the end we only get two copies... so the first two people who special ordered it... get it... simple.  This means, however, that there's a risk certain things might not make it to the shelves... so it would be a good idea to order those items you truly truly want... again in a TIMELY MANNER!!!

As a special bonus to you go-getters we will be offering 10% off retail price to any special orders.  So what else do you need? 

Here's the list.  Feel free to e-mail us at to order / check on prices / ask other general questions.  Our Facebook page is a good place for this too.  We're modern!

Enjoy.  And Merry Ho HO!!
