Thanks to many many folks who made it all come together for RSD at Dave’s Records

Thanks to the Record Store Day people for starting something that has grown so successfully in such a short span of time.

Thanks to all the distributors(Alliance/URP/Matador/RedEye/Thrill Jockey/Numero,et al.) that got everything to us in time so that it wasn’t utter chaos in getting the special product out for the day.

Thanks to all those who talked to us about Record Store Day whether it was college newspapers,radio shows,blogs,internet sites and major media. Us old dinosaurs are still barking but it’s nice that people want to hear about it. Ruff Ruff!

Thanks to all the other participating stores and particularly the Chicago stores for keeping the record scene alive and being inventive enought to still thrive. So Kudos to Reckless Records, Permanent Records, The Old School Records, Laurie’s Planet of Sound, Dusty Groove, Groovin’ High, Jazz Record Mart, Hyde Park Records, 2nd Hand Tunes and many many others.

Thanks to the band “I Was Totally Destroying It”. You rocked the casbah! Thanks for being creative enough to do an instore with a five piece band in such a tiny space. Everyone enjoyed it!

Thanks to Chris for keeping a steady hand at the helm so that things ran smoothly.

Thanks to my family for standing behind me even though I panic every year and think it isn’t going to come together. Missed you this year Sam but it all worked out alright.

Finally, thanks to the Chicago record buying masses. You made a chaotic and challenging day fun and easy to handle. Your good spirits and sense of adventure for the day was thrilling and inspiring. It makes me glad and proud to be doing this record store thing.

Let’s try it again next year. Cupcakes and candy for everyone!

About davesrecords

The sign on the door says it all- NO CD’s!! Never had ‘em!! Never Will!! Dave’s is totally devoted to vinyl. We carry all speeds (33,45,even 78) all formats (7”, 10”, 12” single, EP , LP) all styles (rock, jazz, soul, funk, hip hop, house, disco, reggae, blues, folk, country, vocal, soundtracks, showtunes, classical, indie/alternative and every sub-genre you can imagine). If it’s on vinyl, it’s here now or it’s passed through our doors and in to someone’s crate. On any given day, there are at least 40,000 titles to choose from. Every day new titles freshen the racks. We sell both new and used. You’ll find both import and domestic new vinyl. You’ll find a wide assortment of new reissued vinyl. You’ll find out of print used vinyl that you’d thought was long gone. No matter what it is, you’re likely to find it in our bins. If you come to Chicago, check us out. If you can’t, e-mail us and we’ll try to hook you up. Not everyone has a great vinyl store within reach.
