3 Minute Record

"We learned more from a three minute record baby than we ever learned in school..." -from No Surrender by Bruce Springsteen

A short RSD report

Just chiming in with my Record Store Day purchases and a few impressions of the day. Let's start with the goodies:
Justin Townes Earle
- Move Over Mama b/w Racing In The Streets [7"]
Death Cab For Cutie - Live [7"]
The New Pornographers - Moves b/w A Drug Deal Of The Heart [7"]
Flogging Molly - Don't Shut 'em Down b/w Saints & Sinners (Acoustic) [7"]
Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band - Gotta Get That Feeling b/w Racing In The Street ('78) [10"]
Atmosphere - The Family Sign [LP, Clear Vinyl]
Mercy Rule - Providence [LP]
The Blasters - Over There [LP]
Patty Griffin - Downtown Church [CD]
Will Hoge - Again Somewhere Tomorrow [CD]
Glossary - Feral Fire [CD]
Son Volt - 6 String Belief [DVD]

Overall it was a great day with a lot of good finds. I was particularly excited about Jeff finding the Mercy Rule album at Apop and bringing it to my attention. Such a good record and it is really cool to have a copy on vinyl. The Blasters brings me one step closer to owning all of their original releases on vinyl. The Patty Griffin and Will Hoge discs were good used CD finds while waiting in line at Euclid. Euclid came through with having a copy of the Glossary disc, I've been meaning to pick it up since last year and it hasn't left my player since opening it. Got to see some great performances by John Doe and Jill Sobule, The Sights, The Bottle Rockets, and the legendary Skeletons. Let's not forget about the free brews at the various locations! Euclid had PBR, Apop had PBR and Fat Tire, and Vintage represented with some Schlafly. The highlight of the day was just getting to spend the day with such great friends. Thanks to Jeff, Scott, Scott, and Tom for the great day. Let's hope next year proves to be even better!
