National Record Store Day

Jeff Liles has an article in the observer about National Record Store Day and some of the great record stores in the metroplex over the last 40 years.  There's a nice little snipit about Metamorphosis Records in there.  Click here for the full article.

"These days, the last remaining crate diggers represent the heart of the faithful; the club DJs, the record collectors and producers, the wax tourists who go from city to city looking for rare grooves they can sample for new hip-hop artists. There is an art to it. The lifestyle requires taste, patience, time and money. It also requires the ownership of a functioning record player and needles. All of that stuff takes up space and requires attention. 

In a world where people are downsizing and putting their lives on a hard drive, the commitment to collecting records usually means dedicating the extra bedroom in your house or apartment just for climate-controlled storage. You don't keep records in the garage. "
