This week's been a hard one around here. You may know by now, but we lost our beloved shop-dog and top saleswoman, Loretta, on Tuesday. We've felt super loved and cared for with all the condolences and memories you all have shared. Those are seriously appreciated.
Also wanted to give a huge thanks to JHS Pedals and everyone who came out Saturday for the Off the Record event. It was a huge success, and we were honored to be a part of it. If you're buying guitar pedals this holiday season, think of JHS first. Check out their offeringshere.
We've got a pretty stellar new release lineup this week, headlined by some killer reissues you'll want to check out. I'm personally very excited to see the Hold Steady's 2008 rock and roll celebrationStay Positive reissued on a 10th anniversary deluxe edition. This 3xLP set features a slick die-cut cover, the full album remastered for 45 RPM, and eight b-sides. If you haven't heard the record, listen to the first five Kiss records and then listen to it. We've also got some new Paul McCartney remasters, as well as a beautiful box-set comprising ALL John Coltrane recordings from his remarkably prolific 1963 sessions.
We've also got some releases of classic hip-hop records with re-imagined covers from the folks at Marvel. Liquid Swords, LL Cool J, and 50 Cent are all in the house.
The holiday records are still dropping in full force, too. This week brings Chrissy Teigen's husband's 2018 collection of seasonal songs,A Legendary Christmas.Make sure to cruise our holiday-themed display for more titles!
Of course, we've also got the limited new Sufjan Stevens 7", "Lonely Man of Winter," to keep you warm as the temperature drops. Check the full list of new titles below!
As far as giveaways go, we're still running a giveaway for the new Jeff Tweedy memoir (which should also be back available for sale by this weekend!), as well as a signed Fleet Foxes flier and all kinds of tickets. We've got chances to see Trampled By Turtles, Kurt Vile, Peter Murphy, Hippo Campus. Chvrches, Post Animal, and Rainbow Kitten Surprise! Pop in to give yourself a shot at 'em.
Lastly, keep in mind that our GIFT CARDS make the perfect gift for anyone who's into music. Also, don't forget that if you live outside KC or can't make it into see us, you can shop us online atmillsrecordcompany.com.
Take care, Dylan, Judy, and the Team
