Sell Us Your Media

Redscroll Records is always buying used vinyl, CDs, DVDs, and books of interest! We pay cash, but we’ll give you a bit more in store credit.

Now that we’ve rearranged the store and opened up a whole new room for just used records we have a wealth of space. We’ve all got stuff on our shelves that we bought checked out once, and will never pick up again. I’m talking about things that you have no sentimental attachment to. Maybe you have a family member who is just holding onto things because they don’t want to spend the time to get rid of them – offer your time to come to our store with that uncle’s 70s rock collection, mom’s old Aleister Crowley books, your cousin’s ska CDs, … Spring is traditionally the time for cleaning so why not go through your collection and weed out anything you haven’t listened to in a couple years?  Why not?  I will tell you why you should. 

It is beneficial for us, but it is also beneficial for you. Tag Sales, Craigslist, Ebay, … all those things take up a lot of your time.  Time is money, right?  We will pay you on the spot. Spin yarn into gold. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure (gender neutral usage). 

Community! 

When you go to a record store with a great used section it is because of a few factors.  Perhaps, the purveyors of said store found a magic beanstalk which they climbed and defeated a giant who had a great collection of discs (that were probably tiny to him).  More likely is that they’ve built a niche within the community.  They’ve sold and bought records to people with respectable tastes.  We have a respect for the people that come into our store and that is why we are writing this now.  Sell us your used media so that another may easily find it.  We all win!

905 Tapes Basement / Record Fair

This week has been crazy good. It has been the kind of week that I will look forward to next year as soon as this one is over. Luckily, it doesn’t end until tomorrow evening. A full week culminates in a massaging wash of noise, drone, ambience,… cathartic walls of sound, etc.

I’m sorry to say that Halflings is not playing as was originally planned. Nor is Poison Fingers. All is well that ends well as the lineup is now:
Roman Wolfe w/ D. Gookin (Collaboration)
Colorguard (Kryssi B.)
and Matt Grem (of Medhammer) possibly?

This is starting at 6PM which is a little early for a show like this, but after this week it’s going to feel like 4AM to me. Don’t go to sleep tonight. Stay up. Forget your first name. Show up and get blissed.

Roman Wolfe has a new tape out on 905 Tapes too. Check it!

In the morning from 11AM-4PM I (Rick) will be at the WESU Record Fair as well. Feel free to come by and join in on that fun too.

RECORD STORE DAY Stock Update

RECORD STORE DAY TOMORROW! In accordance with that I’ve broken the update into 2 sections.
The first is all the RSD items and then the second is the newest of regular stock.

(If you don’t see it, I’m sorry, we didn’t get it for one reason or another. The Hold Steady we didn’t get because there are over 1000 stores participating and only 700 of those were made in total. Ouch!)

A Couple Movies About Record Stores

Time is flying by. Soon after opening shop in April 2007 a local independent (then student) film-maker, Brendan Toller, came by the shop and did some filming (among many many other shops and private collector locations) for a movie that we did the CT Premiere screening for on July 13, 2008. This coming Record Store Day sees a limited release of this movie, I NEED THAT RECORD! We will have some copies, for sure. It will have a full wider release in July. Why wait? Check this trailer:

I Need That Record! Trailer from Brendan Toller on Vimeo.

There is also a new record-angle doc I’m excited to check out (whenever that may be done and available for viewing). It seems to feature some prominent collectors and goes beyond just the listening audience to talk about the aesthetics of what makes records great (Blue Note album covers!). It also reminded me that I need to go down to Pittsburgh soon (summer time) to do some serious record digging.
