Record Store Day 2020 - Drop #3 (October 24) Part 2

The final RSD 2020 Drop is coming up on October 24! It’s definitely been different this year, but it seems like it’s gone pretty well. People are getting the records they want, stores are getting business and it seems like we’ve found a good way of making this happen, even under our bizarre Covid-19 situation. So now that RSD 2020 is almost complete, let’s take a look at a few items coming up in the final drop!

Record Store Day 2020 - Drop #2

All in all, I’d say that RSD 2020 Drop #1 went pretty well.  Looking around on the interwebs, it seems like most places did a good amount of business and outside of quite a few online retail websites crashing, the problems seemed few and far between. The good news is that with Drop #1 under our belts, Drop #2 should be easier.


A lot of my big hitters were in Drop #1, so how is Drop #2 looking for release? Let’s check out a few.

Like many things, Record Store Day 2020, originally slated for April 19, succumbed to Covid-19 cancellation.  This really wasn’t a surprise, with safety and common sense taking the lead.  The last thing we needed to do was pack into lines and queue up in the midst of a pandemic.

Anyone that knows me, knows how obsessive I can be about Record Store Day and I’ll admit that I go into it with a mix of pure excitement and thinly veiled anxiety.  I always worry about getting the items I really want and then worry about how much I may spend. I can be a bit of a mess about it all. The other thing I do is make list after list of the items that I am interested in and continually refine it over the weeks leading up to Record Store Day.
