The Sound Of The Crowd! Show tracks for Sat. Apr. 18/15

How did your Record Store Day fare? Me, I chose to give it a miss this year. The release list was completely underwhelming for me. To be honest there were a few I would have purchased if the prices weren't so far out of whack. That's not to say that I won't have a look next week at whats left after all the insanity dies down. Maybe I'm getting old, but I just don't see the point in dealing with complete assholes and paying to much money for re-issues. But I hope you got some of what you wanted and enjoyed yourself, after all that is point of it all.
