It’s pretty obvious we here at BLURT are big fans of Record Store Day—not only do we breathless report on the annual gathering of the vinyl geek tribes (yes, that is us lined up hours before our favorite indie store opens on the assigned day), we typically have post-mortems of some of the sweet scores we make. To wit:

Special Interview w/the RSD Organizers

A few weeks ago the official list of 2015 titles was published at the RSD website and it’s a doozy, as usual. This afternoon a slew of last-minute additions were made public, and it would be an understatement to say that some of these titles are making record collectors all across the country salivate like dogs in the presence of Pavlov’s bell. (Cue up the Rolling Stones’ “Bitch”.) That H-Bombs 10” set looks particularly appealing to yours truly, a devoted fan of North Carolina’s Peter Holsapple and Mitch Easter.
