Rollercoaster Records - Record Store Day 2012

Record Store Day

“I grew up discovering music at local independent shops in my city. Being able to walk in and listen to unknown artists from across the country as well as local bands was something to look forward to when I got off school. Finding an album, taking a chance on it based on the cover and it ending up being my favorite album of the year. Where else can you find vinyl, tapes, CDs and rare albums? Independent shops will even let you go through their catalogs and special order hard to find CDs or imports that you can't find anywhere else. If we lose indie record shops we definitely lose a spirit of rock and roll.”
