Thanks to all who made Record Store Day 2011 a success! The fanatic customers who showed up early, the artists who spun records & performed, and the staff who worked hard to pull it all off. Long Live Record Stores!

We still have some of the great releases still in-stock:
  • Black Angels 12"
  • Ray LaMontagne 12"
  • Peter Bjorn & John 7"
  • Pearl Jam vinyl- Vitalogy and Vs.
  • Derek & The Dominoes--7"
  • Bruce Springsteen--10"
  • Kings of Leon 10"

  • ...and lots more!
So stop on down before they're gone and on e-bay at inflated prices.

The Burnside store has been reorganized one more time. We wanted to get more vinyl into the store, so we moved the DVD movies over with rock and pop CDs and moved all the vinyl in with the jazz and classical stuff. We managed to make room for a few thousand more records, including more green tags (bargains). And, we opened the front doors to the original space, so you can enter on the CD side or the vinyl/jazz/classical side; checkout is on both sides as well.

Now, we're in the process of filing and alphabetizing more catalog vinyl and I'm culling through the boxes and boxes of old warehouse vinyl and bringing that into the new space ... with lots of interesting finds, like colored vinyl and promo Prince 12-inches. They're probably gone by now, but there will be more stuff coming the following weeks.

There is more work to be done so be patient and if you ever need help finding something, be sure to ask. Sometimes we can be surly and cranky, but usually we'll do whatever we can to assist you. Thanks.

And at 4pm, one of Portlands funnest bands around, Purple and Green will do an instore....

As usual, set times may change or be canceled due to things beyond our control. Trust us when we say we will do our best to not disappoint.
