A lot of promotional records turn up with this date on them – Tuesdays are, after all, the day that records are released. I guess I can’t say why but it really does make sense when you think about it.
And I can add a true story: A friend of mine had a job interview on September 11th and it was in the World Trade Center. Being so fanatic a record collector that he would value records over a paying job, he blew off the interview to get a copy of Bob Dylan’s Love and Theft, which was being released that day. I think if you bought a copy of it the first day you also received Bob Dylan’s burrito recipe book. There was some special feature that enticed my friend enough to piss away a chance at a good job to buy a Bob Dylan album and take it back to his borough apartment. Being a record collector saved his life!
