Record Store Day Invades Black Friday

Black Friday–the day after American Thanksgiving–is the start of the final stretch of shopping into Christmas. People have become conditioned to expect stupid deals and special offers to entice them to spend money.

The folks behind Record Store Day have decided to join the madness–who can blame them?–by offering up some special Black Friday releases.  Like what? Glad you asked.

Someone save me the “Black on Black” vinyl version of ...Like Clockwork by Queens of the Stone Age. And are they really beating that In Utero horse again?

    It's just too bad that most of this stuff doesn't make it to the rack and instead ends up on eBay.

    Put me down for The Replacements All Shook Down. Pressed on vinyl for the first time, and mastered from analog. That would sound very sweet.
