Well thank goodness. I was pretty crushed Amazon would try to disrupt a day set aside to support local retailers. Thankfully, this "sale" offers zero threat.

Yeah Dead Dog is awesome. New releases & even special limited colourful records are always cheaper than Amazon and the people there are very nice.

I bought this record, by a pretty good Canadian band, for $9.65 from Amazon a few weeks ago. It said the regular price was just over $14, and the sub-$10 price continued for several days after I ordered. Now it's listed as a "limited time deal" on Vinyl Day for $29.99. Well done, Amazon.

I recall the 80's TV show "Wiseguy" had a story arc with a record company called Dead Dog Records which had Tim Curry at the helm.

Vinyl is for one you have one.

Vinyls is for when you have a lot.

For example, "I collect vinyls. I just paid $70 for a re-issue of Rumors by Fleetwood Mac on vinyl from the vinyls store."

People always rag on casual collectors who don't know this and try to use vinyl as the plural.
I will tell my grandchildren about the deal I got on an HP Touchpad at the Bank street staples thanks to rfding.

The plural of vinyl is vinyl.

If you want to throw an s on there, you collect recordS.

Lol,
Nope, you have it backwards, casual collectors use “vinyls” as plural.
The “vinyls store” good one.

You are getting mixed up with CD.

People commonly say CDs, when the plural of CD has always been CD.

With vinyl, vinyls has always been the accepted plural. Next time you go into a REAL record store where people know their stuff, like at Urban Outfitters, ask the cashier. They will confirm this.

Excellent deal on an epic fail. In for 10!! Vinyl prices have gotten a bit ridiculous the past few years and some of the pressings are absolute garbage in terms of sound.

I had a look at some of the releases for the brick and mortar...nothing really caught my eye.

Dude, just stop. You're wrong. I honestly can't tell if you're actually serious.

From the username and location I have a feeling that guy is French. Don't they put commas in prices instead of periods and put the dollar sign after the price? That may help explain things :lol:

Otherwise, yeah just straight trollin'!

The ultimate troll in this thread is Amazon, not a deal to be had...
