The celebration of Record Store Day was held last Saturday and saw huge crowds grace the occasion. As the celebrations went on, there was a lot of excitement from all over the world. A number of the vinyl collection forums were buzzing with the hype due to the RSD exclusives since they were eyeing them. Photos of the shipments are posted before the time was due in my local shop. Seeing people lined up for the collection before the time is a fascinating experience. 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. Among the most important days for the major labels to release an overhyped limited press is during this events. 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 worth noting that some years back you would lose a lot of money on the major exclusives some few years ago and this would be very disappointing. There are a number of problems that are associated with the major exclusives despite the fact that they are good. You should note that this record store 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.
Even as the event was in progress, the news were being streamed by the various collection groups. 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. Cheap is always expensive, it is important that as a local shop owner you get the new records from your neighborhood other than using the internet for low prices. For your local shop to remain on course, it will be crucial that you spend some cash for quality records. Lastly, supporting the independent music record stores will demand that we ensure that the Record Store Day is done more than twice in a single year.
