Record Store Day. Last orders in the shop Friday, online Saturday.

Friday 28th April is the last day that Record Store Day releases can only be sold in the shop. All remaining  stock will go online at 1 minute past midnight on Saturday 29th April. Please be aware we have sold out of many of the most in demand releases, so even though they are listed on our website this doesn’t mean that we will have stock once they go online. 

At the moment we still have some of the big releases on sale in the shop and after we have closed at 6pm on Friday we will set up the unsold stock for Saturday.

This means Friday is the final opportunity for people to come in and buy Record Store Day releases before the online sales commence.

At the moment we still have copies of releases by: David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Manic Street Preachers, Cabbage, Courteeners, Ocean Colour Scene, Iggy Pop, Ramones, Sex Pistols, The War On Drugs, Feeder, London Grammar, Pink Floyd, T.Rex, Ian Hunter, Coheed And Cambria, Peter Hook, Aqua, Kasabian, Babymetal, Devil Sold His Soul, Gerard Way, Halestorm, Midlake, Soulwax, Sublime, Prince plus many more. 

We are open from 9:30am until 6pm on Friday if you want to call in and see what Record Store Day stock we still have left.

Record Store Day – The Annual Thank You Message!

This year’s Record Store Day has been the biggest and best one ever and we would like to thank everyone who came to see us yesterday. The first arrivals pitched up outside the shop at 9am on Friday evening and the queue continued to grow through the night. When we opened at 8:30am the number of people waiting outside the shop was an incredible sight. We would really like to thank everyone for their good humour and patience as they waited for their turn to be served at the counter. There’s no real quick way of dealing with lots of customers armed with lists of stock that they want to buy. We got the impression though that it was worth the wait for many people when they got the Record Store Day releases that they really wanted!

We always aim to get as much stock as we can and not only does that mean we manage to match customers up with their Record Store Day choices, but we also continue to sell some of the big titles after the event. At the moment we still have quite a few copies of releases from David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd, Sex Pistols, Ocean Colour Scene, Ramones plus many more, so it’s definitely worth calling in to the shop before online sales start on Saturday 29th April. We also try and get re-stocks of some of the releases that sold out yesterday and if any of them turn up in the next few days we will be posting on our Twitter feed.

As for those online sales, we have everything that we stocked yesterday listed on our website, but this does NOT mean that they will all be available for online purchases. The only stock that will go on our website will be releases that have not sold out in the shop during this next week. This goes live at 1 minute past midnight on Saturday 29th April. You can also set up an alert for any particular release you are interested in.

Once again though, a huge thank you to all our Record Store Day customers from Ian, Paul, Scott, Jess, Georgia, Lucy and Gavin.

Record Store Day Saturday 22nd April – Important Information.

This year’s Record Store Day is almost upon us and we will be making our price lists available very soon.

Record Store Day rules are the same every year; you cannot pre-order or reserve stock and all sales are over the counter only. On the day we can’t take phone or online orders. You probably need to set the alarm and make sure you are here nice and early (we will be open from 8:30am). All stock is sold on a first come first served basis and customers cannot buy more than one copy of any individual Record Store Day release. There are no strict restrictions of the numbers of different items that can be purchased.

We will be opening at 8:30am on Saturday, one hour earlier than normal. There is usually a queue outside the shop on Record Store Day, so please be prepared to wait to be served. We would also advise having some warm clothing on if you arrive early. It can be pretty cold at that time of day!

As in previous years we will be giving the first 50 people in the queue the option of reserving a first choice item from the Record Store Day list. This will be saved for when you get to the counter where further purchases can be made.

No customer can purchase more than one copy of any of the Record Store Day releases.

We look forward to seeing some of you on Saturday 22nd April. Lots of stock has been ordered so hopefully most people will be able to get the releases they want.

Please note : Customers cannot pre-order or reserve any of the Record Store Day releases, they are sold on a first come first served basis on. The only way to purchase stock is by coming down to the shop.

If there is any stock left over this will be made available to purchase on our website one week later (Saturday 29th April).

Limited Edition Rega Record Store Day Turntables *Now SOLD OUT

It has now been announced which artists have signed some of the limited edition Rega Record Store Day turntables which become available from Saturday 22nd April. The list includes Kasabian, Noel Gallagher, Peter Hook, Placebo and Jarvis Cocker.
The turntables themselves are really good value at £250 each, they are pretty much the same spec as the Rega RP3 which retails at £450.
10% of the record players have been signed and all the artists above have autographed several turntables so the chances of getting one are pretty good.
We are taking pre-orders in the shop and online now, but the turntables have to be collected on or after Saturday 22nd April. All the boxes will be sealed and customers can then choose one at random. Nobody will know which boxes contain the signed turntables until they are opened.
It is very likely that we will sell out of our allocation of turntables, so we would advise ordering as soon as possible. There are only 500 being manufactured for the UK.
You can reserve a turntable in the shop with a minimum £100 deposit, or pre-order one online by following this link.

 

Rega - Record Store Day 2017 10th Anniversay Limited Edition Planar1/RP3 Hybrid

Record Store Day – Saturday 22nd April

This year’s Record Store Day takes place on Saturday 22nd April and we will once again be taking part.

Lots more Information available here 

Today (Tuesday 21st March) sees the official launch of the list of this year’s releases and we will be sharing this information across social media this evening.

Record Store Day rules are the same every year; you cannot pre-order or reserve stock and all sales are over the counter at participating stores. On the day we can’t take phone or online orders. You probably need to set the alarm and make sure you are here nice and early (we will be open from 8:30am). All stock is sold on a first come first served basis and customers cannot buy more than one copy of any individual Record Store Day release. There are no strict restrictions of the numbers of different items that can be purchased.

At this stage we don’t know what quantities of stock we will be getting or the prices of individual items. However, we will be supplying printable price lists when we get much nearer to the date. We always try to get as many copies as we can of the most popular items and we cover as broad a range of stock from the Record Store Day list as we can.

We will be giving regular updates as we get nearer to the big day, so keep an eye on all our social media platforms. It’s also worth subscribing to our newsletter for information not just on Record Store Day, but all the other stuff we get up to.

This can be done right up until the date of the festival. We do not post tickets out for Leeds Festival.

We sell Weekend Passes (£213), Early Entry permits (£22) and Day Tickets (£72). Weekend ticket holders can get in to Bramham Park on Thursday and Early Entry permits allow access on Wednesday.
