RSD Drop 1 for June 12th (Record Store Day Part 1 of 2 for 2021)

UPDATE EDIT: As of Now, 7PM, remaining RSD Drop 1 titles can be found on our Discogs page: http://www.discogs.com/seller/Redscroll


(Reminder: if you haven’t been to our store in a while – we moved in November and are now at 69 South Turnpike Road, Wallingford, CT 06492 – in the same building as the Battery Shop.)

RSD Drop 1 is tomorrow and below you’ll find of list of what we’ve accumulated for you all to peruse and purchase. Show up during your assigned time slot between 8AM and 3PM (blog post about time slots here) and if for any reason you need or want to forfeit your slot please give us a call (203 265-7013).

Masks are still required here so please have one at the ready. 

At 3PM we will open up the RSD area to any customers who did not previously sign up for a time slot. Please be respectful of one another’s space and we will do our best to keep it orderly (we are using some sidewalk chalk to map out a line in the lot).

The waiting area for RSD items will be in front of our large bay door. It will be obvious when you arrive, but just to clarify the large bay door is the second bay door to the right of our normal front entrance door.

Parking can be found in the normal area that is painted in our lot and overflow parking is basically in the abutting lots.

We are limiting the amount of people in the store to 15 at a time – RSD items are in a separate area – and will be open at 8AM as well. If/when a line forms for the normal store area we ask to be respectful of space and order in that line as well.

RSD Quantity Disclaimer:
We hope we can please and fulfill the requests of a good deal of you all. As much as we’d like to have every possible thing on hand in quantities exactly matching the demand it just can’t work that way. We order a tremendous amount as do many other stores. We are allocated certain amounts of things and ultimately we get a lot because we put in the leg work. That said, we get less than we order and in some cases we miss out on items completely (trust us, it’s not purposeful by any stretch). We want everyone to be happy in the end so be excellent to each other. And if you have a request for something please let us know next week with an email or phone call and we can check on its availability.

At last count there were 27 titles originally slated for June that are now coming out for Drop 2 on July 17th.  You can check out the list at RecordStoreDay.com with the associated dates for each item.

Below is a list of what we will have available. Continue reading RSD Drop 1 for June 12th (Record Store Day Part 1 of 2 for 2021)

RSR PC 044 Record Store Day 2021 Talk

On this episode of the podcast we answer the questions submitted via Instagram and talk about Record Store Day 2021 in general (RSD Drops 1 & 2, June 12th and July 17th).

We talk about what we’re listening to, about what we’re looking forward to from RSD, about what we’ve liked from the past and what we’d hope to have released in the future (RSD or otherwise) and of course a bit more. This is a nice quick listen with lots of music and some information on how we’re running the June 12th drop date for RSD 2021.  More information about how we’re running things at this link.

Record Store Day Drop 1 Virtual Line Time Slot Sign Up

It is once again time for Record Store Day(s). This year Record Store Day is split into 2 separate drops. The first one is on June 12th and the second is on July 17th.

Today, we are opening sign ups for our virtual line which puts you in a queue for JUNE 12th – the first of the RSD Drop days. July’s virtual line sign ups will begin on a day to be announced after June 12th.

Starting today at noon we’re going to start taking spot reservations for the first RSD Drop on June 12th. To reserve a time slot for RSD browsing please come into the store between now and June 11th to sign up at the front counter (to give your name and phone number). This part has to be done in person. We’re doing this to limit traffic flow for the line sign ups itself and for the RSD Drop day. The appointments will be an hour long and will be maxed out at 15 people per hour. Time slots will start at 8AM and run until 3PM.

Directions for RSD 2021 Drop 1 (June 12th, 2021):
1.  Come to the store and sign up. You may sign up for yourself with your name and phone number. We are also allowing people to sign up for one guest, but we will also be collecting the information of that person as well (name and phone number). If your guest is hypothetical or tentative or any other type of maybe do not sign them up.

2. Show up on June 12th at your designated time and in the order of the sign up sheet we will let you browse and buy from the RSD Drop titles.  RSD titles will be set up in an area separate from the main store and traffic inside the main store will still be limited to 10 people at a time (no appointment needed for that). If you miss your designated time your slot will be forfeit and you will have to wait until after 3PM.

We are not reserving spots by phone, email or any other method so please do not ask. Spots must be reserved in person.

If you know anyone who is a fan of Record Store Day that may not follow us on social media or check our website frequently then please do help us out by spreading the word!

After 3PM on June 12th we will be bringing the RSD Drop 1 titles into the main store. If you’ve missed your appointment you may come at that time, however, we are still only allowing 10 people in the store at a time so please make your best effort to sign up ahead of time and keep your appointment to avoid a line! All of this preparation is being done in order to minimize a crowd and we appreciate all of your help and cooperation to help with that goal!

Masks required, of course. 😷

First off, we moved! Come check out our new store!

November 27th, 2020 

Redscroll Records
69 South Turnpike Road
Unit B
Wallingford, CT 06492

We welcomed some folks in tonight via a social media post and it went well! Thanks to everyone who’s already come by! Looking forward to so many more folks coming through!

On Friday we will be open from 8AM-8PM!

We will have some RSDBF items and they are listed below. This is our system for that:
1. Show up early.
2. Sign up for your place in line on our clipboard by the door. No emails or phone calls to reserve your place. You have to physically go and sign up. (Sign up sheet will go out some time randomly Thursday night. We’ll post on social media when it’s out.)
3. Wait until 8AM (in your car or wherever you want, but be ready to come in when it’s your turn).
4. At 8AM we will start calling or texting (preference noted on sign up sheet) people to come inside. We’ll have our bay door open for maximum air flow and there will be a 10 person maximum capacity in place. Masks are required (worn properly over nose and mouth), keep 6 feet of distancing between people and hand sanitizer will be at the door for use upon entry.
5. Shop! Have fun! It’s a new experience in a new place! Please try to limit your time during this first visit so we can keep the line system running smooth.

If you are not looking for Black Friday titles it might be wise to wait until later in the day to come by when there won’t be as long a wait time. Continue reading Black Friday / Grand Opening / RSDBF Update
