NEW THIS WEEK AT THE SHOP:
USED VINYL ALERT:
We've pulled out some heavies to check off your want list in this week's Used Vinyl Alert. Audiophile Beatles, seldom seen classics from Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Grateful Dead, and the Rolling Stones, and a nearly complete run of first pressing Tom Waits LPs are here. More classics come through from JJ Cale, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Dr. John, Lou Reed, Rush, Alice Cooper, the Byrds, Moby Grape, Joni Mitchell, Uriah Heep, Cheap Trick, Doug Sahm, Todd Rundgren, Roxy Music, the Allman Brothers, Steely Dan, and Van Morrison.
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.
