What makes Record Store Day so important?

Independent5The excitement factor that drives people into our stores for these releases is bigger than Christmas, and hopefully once they are in one of our stores they dig what we do and decide to come back on a regular basis.

What makes your store special?

Independent Records does RSD scavenger style – not that we hide product or anything, we just spread all 400+ releases throughout the store in a way that customers have to really search out whatever they’re looking for.

What’s your favorite Record Store Day exclusive release?

I love the Side By Side series from WMG!  The Cure/Dinosaur Jr &  Misfits/Lemonheads and I could go on and on…
