Ah, the salad days of 2009. Those halcyon days, when there was only one official Record Store Day a year. 10 labels had a dream, and that dream was to sell a lot of copies of a single LP on that one single Record Store Day in 2009. Those dreamers included (in the order that I think of them off the top of my head) The Numero Group, Light in the Attic, Now Again, Sublime Frequencies, Finders Keepers, Honest Jons, Jazzman, Daptone, Timmion, and Soundway. That dream was fulfilled on that day: the compilation, which included a number of tracks or mixes that came out nowhere else, sold like hotcakes. But someone else had a dream that day, and that dream was to stick us with a return for 11 copies, which were promptly lost in our “warehouse” (read: the deathtornado we work in). However, today we have a reality for 11 people who dream of those bygone days of 2009, when you could have had to fistfight on the floor of Amoeba for one of these titles. And, this is the last one-day deal of the Christmas season of 2010. After today, we go back to business as usual: high prices and surly customer service.
