About RSD
For general information about the event, visit the official website https://recordstoreday.co.uk/
RSD is run and organised by ERA (the Entertainment Retailers Assocation). It is an in-store event and was founded in 2007 in the USA to encourage people to buy from independent record shops because at that time many were closing. This initiative achieved its aim and led to a resurgence in support for the indie sector. Since then many new shops have opened and this year, RSD celebrated its 15th Anniversary!

The products
Many of the releases are limited editions in small print runs, exclusive to independent record shops and not available to ‘the high street store’. Some ‘not limited’ titles might later go on general release. Not all shops will stock everything and each has to choose which titles they want and hope they get the quantity they ask for (there are nearly 300 shops participating and the stock has to be shared between all of them). ERA stipulate that only one copy of each title may be purchased. This is to stop people buying up multiple copies to auction online at inflated prices – see next.

Online touts and how to avoid them
We’ve been hosting Record Store Day since 2011, and are saddened – and angry – about the unsrcrupulous people who buy RSD releases only to sell on. They have absolutely no interest in music and their activities prevent genuine music lovers getting the records they want at the original retail price. These scum will put RSD titles up for auction online before they have bought them on Record Store Day, and people are sucked into to paying crazy prices for them. I hope there are none of them in the queues at P&C Music…. So, what can you do to avoid paying over the odds?
Each authorised RSD retailer is bound by contract to sell only at the original price (or lower, if they went to reduce some in a clearance sale). If the record you wanted sold out on the day, don’t go online to buy them from an auction site! First, go to https://recordstoreday.co.uk/shop-locator/ to find contact details for all the authorised RSD retailers and try as many as you need to.

Delayed titles
June 18 is the date when titles delayed from April 23 will go on sale. Here is a statement from the organisers, ERA:”
Because of current manufacturing issues, we expect a number of RSD titles scheduled for April 23 to be delayed  In order to still support these titles and to ensure it is as manageable for shops and customers as possible, any titles that are affected by manufacturing delays will automatically fall to the release date of June 18. This will be called an RSD Drop (NOT Drop 2 or RSD 2). All titles that have moved into June 18 are currently listed on the PDF and individual product pages on the RSD UK. website. Currently, normal RSD rules apply to products released on both April 23 and June18. We will keep this under review and update you should there be any changes to this”

Queueing
The earliest time RSD shops are allowed to open is 8.00am. People often ask “What time shall I queue up?” which is an impossible question to answer. If you want to make sure you get a particular title, it’s up to you to decide what time to get out of bed for it! It’s against RSD rules to reserve titles in advance and it’s first-come, first-served on the day.

Each shop has its own policy about how many records a customer can buy. Some shops allow an unlimited number of purchases per customer, so the first people in the queue can buy as many as they like. Imagine how discouraging it is for other customers to witness that, whey they have also queued for hours? In our view this is unfair, because a) other customers are unlikely to get much of what they want and b) it encourages online touts to buy large quantities of records to sell online. Our policy at P&C Music is this: when it is your turn to be served, you can buy up to five individual items and if you wish to buy more, you rejoin the queue. That way, each customer has a reasonable chance of acquiring the titles they queued for. We’ve done this for years and our customers agree that it is a fair system.

IN MEMORIAM GEOFFREY WEBBER, 1946 – 2021

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Cllr-Geoff-Webber-300x169.jpg

It is with great sadness that I report that Geoffrey Webber, the founder of Pomp and Circumstance (now P&C Music), passed away on 11 March 2021. He served in the RAF and had an active political life as a Liberal Democrat Borough Councillor for twenty six years, representing Bilton and Nidd Gorge. In May 2006 he became Mayor of Harrogate. He was also a strong supporter of the Harrogate Homeless Project. He was a well-respected councillor and politician who worked hard for his residents. His honesty and integrity will be remembered with fondness by all who knew him. His wife Pat said: “Geoff was the perfect husband to me – we loved each other so much and he was just wonderful to me in every way possible. He will be sadly missed by us all.”
On a personal note, I got to know Geoff as a customer of the shop when it was in Commercial Street. When he decided to retire in 2010, I agreed to buy the business. He was generous with both his advice and with his time; I learnt a great deal from him and we became friends. It is testimony to him that the shop continues to this day and is now in its 28th year of trading.
