Despite a strong desire to sleep, I got up, showered, and went to Record Store Day 2018.
Being that I got there only an hour before it started, I was #67 in line, which didn’t strike me as terrible. Until I saw that they only had four copies of the AC/DC and five copies of the Wu-Tang Clan cassettes I wanted.
I didn’t have to wait in the same line as everyone else since I only wanted tapes, but I still wasn’t able to just jump right up to the registers (where they had the cassettes). So I waited through about two dozen cash-outs and then was told to jump in.
AC/DC was gone. But only one copy of Wu-Tang sold (I’m sure it was Martin Shkreli). Here’s my haul...
I saw someone there spend nearly $1,000 on vinyl. I know the guy, too. It was a crazy haul. Of course it included one of the AC/DC cassettes so I officially hate him.
I’m not sure if I would go again for as few cassettes as they had. And I don’t want to go earlier and wait in line forever.
But Steve Warrenfeltz, the owner of Kiss the Sky in Batavia (where I went for RSD) told me there is actually a Cassette Day. It’s a thing that’s been happening for a few years. He did it once but probably not again so I may have to do some research in where I can go.
Anyone selling the AC/DC cassette? Contact me.
I wish this was my collection.
