Record Store Day 2012

So Record Store Day 2012 has come and gone, did you find everything you were looking for?  Some of the more sought after items were available on Ebay as early as Saturday morning which brings up a disturbing question.  How many buyers are only waiting in line to buy limited edition records for resale and is it fair to the die hard collectors out there?

Maybe the organizers of Record Store Day should implement a year long program for collectors to accumulate ‘credits’ at their local stores every time they buy music (or speficially vinyl) over the course of a year.  Then when Record Store Day 2013 rolls around those with the most ‘credit’ will be allowed early access or front of the line status.

This would encourage people to buy records all year long and not just on Record Store Day and maybe more of the records would wind up in the hands of people who actually want them and not on Ebay mere minutes after purchase.

If you missed out on some of the titles and would just like to hear the music, some have been posted on You Tube for your listening pleasure…enjoy!
