So fer starters — yes, we have some of Record Store Day™’s Black Friday releases. Many were sold in the first hour of the day so feel free to call ahead if you’re looking for one in particular. We also saved a couple large collections of classic rock, jazz and rhythm and blues LPs to put out today.
What we were excited to post today is a video from the PBS documentary Soundbreaking which several friends shared with us last week. Turns out the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach is a fan our our li’l record shop, naming it first when he listed stores he likes to visit around the country. We were more than a little flattered to hear that!
This summer we discovered this compilation album of songs by Junior Kimbrough, called Sunday Nights, and played the hell out of it. Our favorite track on the album was the Black Keys’ version of “My Mind is Ramblin’.” We were even more excited to discover they’d recorded an entire EP of his songs, called Chulahoma. We listened to these records all summer, and we’d be embarrassed if Mr. Auerbach came in while we were playing them!
