BLACK FRIDAY RECORD STORE DAY IS NOVEMBER 27:
Strictly Discs will be the place to be this Post-Thanksgiving-Shopping-Melee-Day, also known as Black Friday.
And that's because certain indie stores across the country will be the place to get special releases created just for you, for giving and getting this holiday season, and they're scheduled for release on Black Friday, November 27, 2020.
Now, this is not Record Store Day, Jr., but it is brought to you by the powers-that-be at Record Store Day. This is a group of special releases you can only find at certain independent record stores nationwide. The magic of these pieces (many uber-limited) is that every one of them is something someone will really LOVE to get, and you'll really ENJOY giving. And you may have the added nice feeling of supporting a local, independently owned (Strictly Discs, Independently Owned since 1988) business during the holidays.
Wishlists can be now be made HERE for Black Friday. The deadline to create or modify a Black Friday wishlist is 5PM Wednesday, October 14th.
NEW THIS WEEK AT THE SHOP:
USED VINYL ALERT:
We head downstairs for a phenomenal spread of fresh used vinyl arrivals that's heavy on soul, psych, folk and jazz.
USED CD ALERT:
In the midst of preparing for the final stanza in the Record Store Day trilogy, we couldn't ignore the CD people. Here's the incoming batch for this week. It wouldn't be Rocktober without jazz. This week's lot is decidedly forward-facing. Think heady work from Eric Dolphy, Ornette, Archie Shepp and Don Cherry. For the bleeps, blips and bloops crowd, there's goodness from Fourtet, Prefuse 73, Aphex Twin and Ryuchi Sakamoto. Rock lives on through albums from The Band, T-Rex, Neil Young, Kate Bush, Talking Heads and El Hombre Van. Those with a more adventurous bent can take advantage of new titles from Bjork, Explosions in the Sky, OFF!, Flaming Lips and The Books. Grab your wallet, grab your mask and do what you feel in a responsibly, socially distant manner.
