Yes, as we’ve discovered, there is a Zen likeless between the live concert experience and flipping through the vinyl at your favorite record shop.
And after this year’s Record Store Day I certainly achieved my vinyl nirvana with other live music fans at Reckless Records.
Here’s a snapshot of the bounty I scored on RSD 2012 (Clockwise):
Iggy and the Stooges – Raw Power
Tegan and Sara – Get Along (Live)
The Civil Wars – Live at Amoeba
Buddy Guy – This Is Buddy Guy (Live)
Shabazz Palaces – Live at KEXP
I’ve been working my way through each album and digging every second. But I’m holding off on opening a few of these albums for a special reason because, you know, we love contests.
Live Fix Blog Comment Giveaway
Yep, we want to share the RSD fun with you so we’re celebrating with a couple Live Fix Fan giveaways.
The first one will be happening right here on Live Fix in the comments below.
Prize #1: Record Store Day prize package
During my visit to Rediscover Records, Rich was kind enough to offer up a RSD compliation CD, Tedeschi Trucks Band “Revelator” Live EP, and a Sub Pop Mixed Nuts sampler that includes tracks from Beach House and others.
Prize #2: The Civil Wars – Live at Amoeba
We’re excited to give these two prizes away as they’re both an excellent collection of live and studio tracks.
And all you have to do is drop a comment below that includes either your favorite local record shop, RSD experience, or your most memorable concert.
We’ll pick two lucky winners at random, contact you via email and send you the winnings via mail.
The comment contest starts today Monday May 7th and ends on
Friday May 11th Wednesday May 16th at 11:59pm. You must provide your email in your comment and you can only enter once. Any duplicates will be thrown out. We’ll announce the winners on Sunday May 13th.
