Saturday was Record Store Day. What's that? "Record Store Day is an internationally celebrated day observed the third Saturday of April each year. Its purpose, …, is to celebrate the art of music. The day brings together fans, artists, and the over 700 independently owned record stores in the United States, along with hundreds of independent record stores across the world." (source: Wikipedia)
Here in Dubuque, Iowa we have MOONDOG MUSIC. I like to go there and dig in their boxes of vinyl LP's, not just on Record Store Day. The staff is very knowledgable and I always enjoy a chat with Jarod, Mike, or Kat.
Listen to music and collecting vinyl records is my other hobby beside photography. Any time I sit in front of my computer and work with my pictures the radio is playing or the turntable is rotating.
Did I find anything last Saturday? Of course I did! "Television: Live at the old Waldorf, San Francisco, 6/29/78", double LP, white vinyl, limited to 3000 copies, and exclusive for Record Store Day. One of my favorite bands and as a collector I can't ask for more… As you can tell by the quality of the quick snapshot above, photography had second place that night. ;-)
