A couple of weeks ago I headed to my favorite local music store for Record Store Day. I always block off my schedule because I love all the extra things the record store does on this special day. Lots of bands put out special promotional items and the stores have special things like bands, food trucks, and good sales. Also, if you want to fight a crowd, you can get there early and take a chance on getting a special tote filled with goodies from the Record Store Day org. I did it last year, but this year I just wanted to relax at the event!
The day before, I happened to see online that some of my favorite artists were giving away a limited amount of their CD to certain stores. It has been about a year or so ago that I saw these artists, Daniel Martin Moore & Joan Shelley, come into CD Central and perform a concert for their duo-album, Farthest Field for a small crowd. They’re really talented, super nice, local Kentucky artists, and were nice enough to sign the album I purchased.
Since I already had a copy, I didn’t intend to pick up the free one. But after striking up a conversation about Daniel and Joan with the owner of the store, I ended up with a copy anyway, which was totally awesome. I pondered what to do with it, then decided that I would give it away and pay it forward.
So thank Daniel Martin Moore & Joan Shelley, and CD Central for passing this along in the first place.
