Wow what a week! The response to the online RSD Drop on Saturday far exceeded expectations. A BIG thank you for all your orders. We have been working round the clock this week to process them. We appreciate it was a very different experience from a usual Record Store Day and much more of a scramble online but we hope you are enjoying your new vinyl - for those that have picked up or received in the post so far. We would of course much rather have welcomed you to the shop for the Drop but it wasn't feasible this time round.
There are still a few great releases up for grabs. They will remain on the website and copies of some of the remaining August RSD stock will be in the shop for browsing from Saturday 5th.
There are of course 2 more Drops to come, one on Sat 26 September and one on Sat 24 October as well as National Album Day Sat 10 October - so lots to whet your appetites with. Our stocklist for the forthcoming Drops and National Album Day will be uploaded asap. The full list of releases is available to view on the official RSD site https://recordstoreday.co.uk/home/
We would love to have the shop open on these dates rather than just online but there's a lot of factors to consider. We'll announce our plans soon.
There are some great new releases/arrivals in the shop this week to tell you about.
