Recordstore Day 2010

I'm on the train... heading to Motherwell... after a fab retail excursion. Today is "Recordstore Day"... a celebration of all that's great about the endangered independent recordstore. What's great about them?

Well... Avalance in Glasgow had choice, limited editions, friendly staff & great service. I was able to get 3 out of the 7 on my list... 2 of which were extremely limited releases for RSD10 (the Album Leaf & Jamie Lidell). I bought the Jonsi 7" because I love his work. I did buy a limited edition Friendly Fires A side only 7" but it had a dirty big scratch on it. I took it back & experienced some fabulous service... that was warm, honest & accessible. I loved that. Another thing I loved was that the staff knew the regulars by name & their dialogues were genuine & warm. I hope Recordstores like Avalance survive & I'll do my bit to ensure they do. Tx
