Record Store Day Drop 2 (July 17th, 2021)

We open at 8AM tomorrow (July 17th, 2021) for Record Store Day (Drop 2). We are asking folks for their own safety in our industrial area parking lot not to show up before 6AM please.

The social media we use most is Instagram. Please do follow us there for regular stock updates and occasional announcements.

(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 2 is tomorrow and below you’ll find of list of what we’ve accumulated for you all to peruse and purchase.

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

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.

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.

We have also received word that a good amount of titles have been delayed and will receive later release dates. And some items have been cancelled altogether.

Below is a list of what we will have available.
Record Store Day titles are limited to 1 per title per person (buy as many titles as you’d like, just 1 each). Continue reading Record Store Day Drop 2 (July 17th, 2021)

RSD Drop 2 is July 17th / Thanks for a successful RSD Drop 1!

Thanks to all who made it out and participated in our Record Store Day Drop 1 yesterday. We planned the time slots month in advance and for those that came through it proved to be a great way to do things this time around. We’re thankful for you all and for the day and so we look forward to RSD Drop 2 on July 17th!

For July 17th, there will be no sign ups and no time slots! You just have to show up for our 8AM open time. We are asking that you respectfully (of us and our neighbors and yourselves, really) don’t show up before 6AM. No camping. In fact, we feel so strongly about this that if you’re camping we’ll send you to the back of the line. 😮 This is an industrial area and there are tractor trailers that sometimes visit this lot in the middle of the night and it really just is for safety reasons above all else! We want you to live long healthy lives full of great music and we can only provide that latter one and depend on you all to take care of the first couple parts! 🥰

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.

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. 😷
