I don't necessarily suggest you camp out,but I would suggest you get an early start Friday morning to your local record store in order to find these special issues for Black Friday Record Store Day. Here is a list of the special releases.
You've seen countless ads on TV about Black Friday shopping at big chain stores,but I expect your record store experience doesn't involve trampling or eye gouging. No, I bet you'd have a great time looking for cds or vinyl that you've had on yours or someone specials Christmas list...think ahead...if you know you're on the naughty list go ahead and pick up what you think Santa might not leave next to the lump of coal.
At this moment I'm digging Spoon "My Mathematical Mind"as I write this blog...music is a fulfilling part of my everyday experience. As a side note, we need to be thankful for the Arts...music is as important to our ongoing culture as anything else.
