Record Store Day 2012, part one

It's a month and a half away, but we're already getting questions and inquiries about specific Record Store Day titles and their availability.  This warms our hearts.  We love it when there's evidence that people still love music and not just digital content for their various devices.

As usual there are a lot of listed/promoted titles that, unfortunately, might not have a Canadian release... only U.S. or Europe.  In an effort to both drive excitement and satiate curiosity we'll be providing lists of titles that are offered through our distributors and should be available on the day.

Below is the first comprehensive list, but by no means a final definitive one.  Titles will surely be added weekly until the date arrives.  The titles marked with asterisks (*) are ones we are planning on ordering for the store.  The others are available, but not necessarily on our "to get" list.  If anyone is interested in these please drop us a line at either backstreetrecords@gmail.com (for Fredericton) or gumboot@nb.sympatico.ca (for Saint John) and let us know.

As with past Record Store Days we really can't guarantee special orders as fill quantities from distributors and usually averaged out and though we might order 25 copies of something we might only receive 3.  We will fill/hold requests where at all possible, but your best bet will be an early arrival on the day of the sale.

OK, without further ado... the first list.  Stay tuned for more:
