Hello, i was wondering historically does TMR do anything different for Record Store Day than others around the country? I live in Tampa and they stores do quite a bit but something tells me that TMR does more (at least that is what Ebay would lead me to beleive). It has me thinking about flying up to see the area and hit TMR for record store day. So my questions are do they do more than other record stores and is there anything else around the area to do?

RSD 2011: http://littleroom.wh...11#entry1998840

RSD 2012: http://littleroom.wh...11#entry2046476

 

2011 Jerry Lee Lewis played at TMR

2012 They released the liquid filled record that was only available at TMR.

 

This year's discussion is here: http://littleroom.wh...showtopic=70611

 

So far the only thing that's been announced is the Elephant re-release.

 

And to answer the question if there's anything else to do - YES! it's Nashville! There are plenty of places to go. There are other record stores. Last year Grimey's had bands playing for RSD (though I didn't get a chance to see them).

How many Elephant re-issues do you think will be pressed? recordstoreday.com has it listed as an undisclosed amount. I don't really care how many I just want one... i was thinking it could be more then 5,000. What does everyone else think?

The color one is limited. Most likely 300 something. The black edition will be unlimited.

every RSD that wasn't exclusive to TMR has had several thousand pressed to make sure at least a copy of two makes it to as many places as possible in the past the Stripes reissues have all been like tri color stuff only available one place but Elephant is a RSD release that should be going out to as many stores as possible.  Needless to say I'll be leaning on my cane waiting line :D

you could call your shop a day or two before to see how many they get. the shop i go to got five I believe in 2011 (that's when they released the Rome single and that really pretty clear Karen Elson with the fake rose petals pressed between it). I think the next year he had more. . . maybe. I didn't go last year because I ended up going to Nashville. 

 

Did TMR do a release on Black Friday last year? If so, I think my guy had seven or eight of whatever was released. They did. I found my pictures - three 45 releases. Red vinyl, and I believe he had seven or eight of those. 

 

Even in the town that I have to drive to in order to get vinyl, I always show up early. There's always this big 45s guy waiting in line but I'm usually second or third, depending on if I go before my bestest. Sometimes they give something special to the first person in line. the bestest got a nice thermal shirt from a club in DC.

that's cool we don't get anything special for being first in line other than a really weird look from the shop owner who still doesn't quite get this infatuation with limited music but can't help but love that people line up twice a year to get into his shop at this point :D

They didn't list on RSD's page how many "Elephant" RSD editions they are making, which makes me believe that it will be far less limited than the first three White Stripes albums.
