Black Friday/Record Store Day Titles

Black Friday  2017 is November 24

What goes on Black Friday/Record Store Day at Pure Pop?

First, there are many exclusive/limited releases, for more info you can check out recordstoreday.com

Second, there is a sale on all used items in the store

15 % used vinyl

25% used cds/tapes/dvd

So how do I get my hands on my favorite Black Friday/RSD release?

Well, there will be a line. Not as big as proper Record Store Day but there will be people.  Below is a general explanation of how the day will work.

Pure Pop opens at 10am on Friday the 24th. We will be collecting wish lists at 9am sharp – make sure to get yours in by then! If there are only a couple of releases you really want, we DO NOT recommend trying to be the first in line – it won’t make a difference if you fill out a wish list. As long as you’re here no later than 8:55am with your wishlist, you have just as much a chance as anyone else to get the one or two releases that you want. If you want 7 things really, really badly, then we suggest getting to Pure Pop early so you can be the first in line to get in. There is usually already a small line around 7:00am or so. Besides the two items on your wishlist, everything else is first come, first serve. WE DO NOT DO PRE-ORDERS OR HOLDS PRIOR TO RSD titles. This is just general nationwide RSD policy.

So, what’s a wish list? In order for us to try to get you the release you want, we have a “wish list” – you fill out up to 8 releases that you want in order of how much you want them (1 being: you’d kill to get it, 8 being: you wouldn’t be torn up if you missed it). We collect the wish lists at 9am sharp and shuffle them. Starting from the random wish list on the top of the pile, we pick out the top 2 items you wrote down that are available and hold it for you, so you’re guaranteed to get at least something on your list. BUT we cannot guarantee everyone will get their #1 and #2 choices. We have a very limited supply of RSD/Black Friday releases! As we go through the lists and things sell out, we move on to the #3, #4, #5 choices and so on.

Here’s an example of how the wish list works: Say we get 10 copies of the Grateful Dead vinyl. Johnny’s wish list is 20th in the pile of randomly shuffled lists and the Grateful Dead vinyl is at the top of his list. Before we get to Johnny’s list however, ten other people had the Grateful Dead on their top 2 and we put them aside for those lucky people, so we are now sold out of the Grateful Dead. Sorry Johnny, but we’ll have to move on to your number 2 and 3 on the list instead. Even though Johnny didn’t get his number 1 pick, at least he got his 2nd and 3rd! and since it was really up to pure chance, he’s not too bummed and didn’t waste time by lining up outside the store at 3am.

Pure Pop tries to get as many titles as possible, but we cannot guarantee any title will be here until it arrives. We will have most of the official Black Friday/RSD titles when we open at 10am. Feel free to contact us about a specific item or any other issue by calling 802-658-2652 or email [email protected]

See you on November 24 at 9am!!!

Featured New Release: Queens of the Stone Age – Villains

CD

$13.49

Vinyl Indie exclusive version with Exclusive Artwork

$26.96

Deluxe vinyl with pocket and lyric inserts and version specific etching on 4th side

$40.99

“On these asides, QOTSA conjures the dark magic that’s been their calling card since the start, but where …Like Clockwork gained strength from its foreboding, Villains feels designed to lift spirits. For one, it’s filled with ravers and boogies, alternating between taut vamps and louche glam grooves. Homme goes so far as to tip his stove pipe hat to Marc Bolan on “Un-Reborn Again,” one of a few classic rock nods scattered throughout the album. As classic as Villains can sound — and there’s no doubting that Homme and company pledge allegiance to the sounds and styles patented in the ’70s — it feels fresh due to execution.” – Allmusic.com Read the full review

Featured New Release: Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit “The Nashville Sound”

CD special intro low price

$6.99

Vinyl Indie exclusive version with bonus songbook

$21.99

“Isbell writes material that addresses our bewildering times while referencing timeless themes. “White Man’s World,” a fierce Muscle Shoals slow burn, insightfully addresses the marginalization of women, blacks and Native Americans from the perspective of one from the most fortunate demographic group. “Hope The High Road” drips with defiance; when Isbell shouts out “Last year was a son of a bitch,” you feel his empathy, but when he later promises, “There can’t be more of them than us,” you believe that there is a way forward for all the world’s strung-out hearts and souls.” – American Songwriter Read the full review
