Oh my goodness... the gang at Shuffle Function exhibited text book symptoms of compulsive over shopping on this Record Store Day 2012. In the mad dash to get everything on our lists, we found more than we needed but almost all that we wanted. It was spending. There was buyer's remorse. But once that needle hit the grooves it was all better.
Thanks again to Tune Town and Carl for hosting yet another fantastic Record Store Day. These things get better and better, and the releases become more and more desirable, but every year this day is a great example of why independent record stores improve our quality of life.
