Record Store Day 2017 – Chart

For audiophiles and DJs, Record Store Day is kind of like our superbowl. Now in it’s 10th year, Record Store Day has become a big commercial boon for music retailers. 10 years ago I remember having heated debates with other DJs about how Digital will kill vinyl. To some extent I would say digital is winning the battle, but I think it’s a futile war to fight to begin with. I won’t get into how digital has turned indie record labels profits of several thousand dollars into a loss of several hundred but will focus on the positives. Vinyl record sales are rising; in a big way as we first discussed more than a year ago. Before we get on to my selections for Record Store Day 2017, special thanks must be sent out to Play De Record, Invisible City Record Store, Rush Hour and Juno for providing the records, and all the artists bucking the temptation to go only digital and keep the vinyl DJing tradition alive.
