Record Store Day (Saturday, April 13 worldwide) was conceived in 2007 as a day to celebrate the unique culture of the record store and the special role independently owned stores play in their communities.
IN THIS CORNER…FORT WALTON VINTAGE RECORDS
The store, located on Racetrack Road, will be open from 7 AM to 7 PM and will offer hundreds of limited edition exclusive RSD releases, RSD swag, trivia contests, refreshments, RSD t-shirts and more. Plus a FREE RSD goody bag with any exclusive RSD release purchase while supplies last.
In addition to the special releases, FWVR offers a great selection of vintage vinyl albums, box sets, CDs, cassettes, posters, prayer candles, pins, record cleaning kits, lunch boxes, audio equipment and guitars. The store is offering 15 percent off any album priced at $15 or more (excluding RSD releases).
The complete list of RSD titles can be found on the store’s website, fortwaltonvintagerecords.com. Call 850-384-6654 for more info.
AND IN THIS CORNER…CENTRAL SQUARE RECORDS
Starting at 8 AM, the popular Seaside spot will have exclusive, limited vinyl releases plus “a few” giveaway items. The master list is at RecordStoreDay.com, and based on previous years, CSR should have most if not all of them.
THE JUDGES’ DECISION
Too close to call. FWVR sent Beachcomber a lot more info, but we appreciate CSR attaching the RSD logo to their email so we wouldn’t have to go looking for it on our outdated browser.
If you’re in Fort Walton Beach, Navarre or west Destin, we recommend FWVR. If you’re in east Destin, Miramar Beach or South Walton, CSR is your guy (or gal).
And if you’re a vinyl superfreak like Editor Manson, you should clone yourself and hit ‘em both (or gak, get up early).
