Record Store Day 2013: Little Richard

Today is 20 April. Famous world-wide as Record Store Day.  This is the day to ignore iTunes and every other online record store and trundle, pedal, walk, run, race, stumble, hop, skip, gambol, weave or dance your way down to your local INDEPENDENT record store. Go through the LPs, CDs, DVDs, T-shirts etc and buy something that catches your fancy.

I'll be doing that myself. I've got my eyes on a few old LPs in local favorite shops and can't wait to get round and hand over my money.  Incidentally, I think this Record Store Day thing is really catching on because my favorite shops are thriving, indeed bursting at the seams with all sorts of vinyl, weird CDs and stuff.  Everytime I go in there is more and more to browse through.

I picked up this great early rock 'n roll record a couple RSD's ago.  A joyous, no nonsense shot of classic American music from non other than the incredible Little Richard.  I bought it at Quality Records on Glenferrie Rd., Armadale, which has a great selection of new and old (especially jazz) vinyl not to mention CDs, books and other music related. The staff are very knowledgeable and always ultra friendly.  A great place to pass some idle moments between stress and strain of daily life.

Happy Shopping!
