Here’s why this record should be in your collection!

A good one indeed! April 19, 2014 is Record Store Day. Lots of gems are available, like 1,000 Hours (1989), by Sweet Children.

The record contains only four songs: “Only of You,” “The One I Want,” “Dry Ice,” and “1,000 Hours,” the title track. That’s why it’s considered an Extended Play (EP) record. Before the record was released, Sweet Children changed its name to Green Day, an urban slang for extended marijuana use. That’s why it’s considered a gem. Lookout Records released the record in vinyl format only, but in six different colors. THAT’S why it’s considered a collectible!!

According to this source, “Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1000 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally.”

Independent record stores typically have every version of 1,000 Hours in stock, or can order copies for delivery within days. Many stores will be hosting special activities, including refreshments, free samples, and live performances. Enjoy!

Here is some timeless advice for effectively enjoying Record Store Day: 1) Arrive early; 2) Bring a wish list; 3) Park near the store legally.

Here’s an interesting fact!

Ironically, in 2014 the day after Record Store Day will be observed by thousands of people as Weed Day. April 20 is also popularly referred to as 420.
