Record Store Day 2015: Random Records, Durango, CO

record store day 2015 1

I love vinyl LP’s. I got rid of all my records after high school, not appreciating them like I do now… and jumped on the ‘cd’ bandwagon in the late 80’s / early 90’s. I regret that move.

Fortunately, there are awesome record stores like Random Records, in Durango, CO, to help me rebuild my collection.

Owner Kristian Luce is super knowledgeable, super fair, and super friendly. Just a cool guy to hang out with. Record Store Day 2015 was a huge success at Random Records. Just being there on Saturday morning made my whole weekend awesome!

I love this store!

Listener review: A Place of My Own

“A place of My Own takes me to a lonely, desert highway. We’re almost home, whether that’s good or bad, and a storm is building on the horizon. We are wearing comfortable, worn, blue jeans and everything is in slow motion. Telephone poles, jackrabbits, tumbleweeds, lightning. The landscape allows for our thoughts to drift back to a different place and time… Should we stop for gas? Naw, we can make it. Or maybe we don’t want to make it back to wherever it is we call home. A song comes on the radio….a confident yet soothing voice is singing “I’m fallin’ in love again.” We glance at each other and maybe we really are falling in love again. The guitar strings are playing a beautiful lullaby as we drive into the storm. We’re going to paint this drive blue.”

Sunday, July 24, 1983 — Fastway, Saxon, and Iron Maiden

My first ‘real’ concert; went with one of my best friends… who is still one of my best friends. Twenty-eight years later, I still remember it to this day.

Is it childish of me to still love Iron Maiden, some 28 years later? As Bruce Dickinson says, if that teenager is still alive in us somewhere, then we’re still alive. Do I look foolish when I get excited about this? It’s a risk I’m willing to take.
