Celebrating Record Store Day- Part II

PART II: My friend Jeff missed out on the two Record Store Day vinyl album samplers, so I returned to Thunderpussy the next day to see if they had any left in hopes of sending him copies. RSD Volume 2 was gone but I did score Choice Cuts 2009 for him. The vinyl 45 freebies from yesterday were also gone, but lots of other 45s were now with the freebies and I scored 2 more CD singles and 11 vinyl singles. None of the most popular were left like Springsteen, the Dead Weather, or Pretenders- I really wanted the translucent red vinyl Break Up The Concrete single, but still very cool to get some never-heard-before stuff to try out! And for free! (well, free with a purchase, that is). Thanks to Thunderpussy for NOT sticking with the suggested 'free with $50 purchase' bit.
