RECORD STORE DAY UPDATE - Music Biz Association Correction

RECORD STORE DAY WEBSITE REDESIGN 

Hey! You may have noticed that our website recently went through a redesign. We’re pretty happy with the new look, and more importantly, the ease of use on smart phones. Unfortunately, when the site was relaunched we inadvertently left off The Music Biz Association logo from our list of sponsors. The Music Biz Association has been a supporter of RSD since almost the beginning and we are grateful for their solid support. Please note that they have been placed back on the site and that Record Store Day will be back at the Music Biz Convention in Nashville. Hope to see you there.



THE IMPACT OF RECORD STORE DAY

We are now a week out from announcing the 2016 Record Store Day titles. In preparation for the launch I thought it would be a good idea to share this Nielsen chart with you that looks back on the impact of Record Store Day on vinyl sales.

Please feel free to share this chart internally and to the media. It tells an amazing story.

Michael Bunnell, Andrea Pascal, and Carrie Colliton will all be in attendance. Please drop me a line if you are in the city and would like to attend. Or, if you are feeling lucky, just show up and hang with all of us. It’ll be fun.
