  • Old-school sound Record Store Day celebrates vinyl with specials live music

Portland has several record store-slash-labels, but only Mississippi Records has notched co-signs from Jamie xx (it's his favorite American record store) and R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, who's released two solo albums and counting with them.

Participating stores including Homer's, Ear Wax Records, Drastic Plastic, Recycled Sounds and Almost Music in Omaha. The highest selling vinyl albums of a year ago were The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Band Club" and "Abbey Road", selling a combined 132,000 copies. The two-disc set has mono and stereo versions.

"On the day, this is about more than the ethos of the record shop; it's literally about the thrill of acquiring a slab of vinyl, which in the format that is produced, has never been seen in the United Kingdom before".

It was, however, a little easier for the store owners to figure out what might sell this year as compared with past Record Store Days. REO Town's Record Lounge, Old Town's Replay Entertainment Exchange and East Lansing's Flat, Black & Circular all have bands booked and are awaiting both stringent record collectors and casual newcomers. A bonus single has The Shape You're In and See What Love Can Do.

For the first time on Vinyl, this live show along with 3 other concerts from the same year, is being released as a Limited Edition 4xLP set.

"I used to take piano lessons here", she said. "I get that at least once a week".

Saturday, April 21, 8 a.m.to 9 p.m.

For Record Store Day, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and The Flaming Lips collaborated on a 7-inch single with the songs "The Story of Yum Yum and Dragon" and 'Pouring Beer in Your Ear, ' composed by band frontman Wayne Coyne.

He said: "I have been into vinyl all my life, but it is making a massive revival now".

One of the greatest hip-hop songs of all time by one of the greatest rappers of all time will be reissued on Clear/Black marble swirl effect vinyl as a special Record Store Day exclusive.

Vinyl records have evolved to a growing media platform that, according to Billboard, accounted for 14 percent of all physical album purchases, 14.32 million, in 2017 and was the 12th consecutive year of growth for the format. The Stones are re-issuing their 1967 LP Their Satanic Majesties Request on splatter vinyl exclusive to independent record stores, with original gatefold artwork and restored 3D cover.

Generation co-owner Mark Yoshitomi anticipates a significant turnout for Record Store Day and expects this year's big sellers to be the five limited-edition David Bowie records and numerous other older albums being pressed on vinyl for the very first time. Things will have a street release date of whenever, and sometimes it'll be late or I'll order records and they'll come before they come out, and then I just hold them until they're supposed to be released.

Wu-Tang Clan's debut Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) will be available on cassette for the first time since it was first released back in 1993.

Now in three locations, the label/boutique carries its own releases (Typhoon, Radiation City) alongside an always-current selection of Portland's best new bands.
