Record Store Day 2015 – Thank You For Comin’!

IMG_2831Once again, we owe you guys and girls a big THANK YOU for supporting us!  We had a another great RSD and it is because you guys came out to visit.

We had Waylon’ swooning with his mellow renditions of Jennings’ classics, plenty of White Castles and lots and lots of vinyl for the day.

And we still have a few titles left so take a look and see if you can find something you missed or didn’t even know was available like this beautiful “Best of Gallagher” picture disc, Makes a great gift!

Record Store Day Bike Route Pt. II

Beverly Records is always trying to take care of our biking vinyl lovers. In fact, our recent post about biking to Record Store Day received more attention than we ever though possible. Jack even thought it was good!

The only complaint was; Why did we make the route so short? Well if you don’t have much to do after you pick up the latest Bee Gees 12″ or Foo Fighters new album then this is the route home for you.

Biking around Beverly and Morgan Park during the spring is a spectacular way to spend a Saturday. #alliteration  This route for Record Store Day starts at the 119th St Metra Stop heading west on 119th st will take you past the mid century home of Al Capone’s driver. The house is for sale BTW and rumor has it, there is an escape tunnel that leads to the house next door in case The Fuzz shows up…

bike rackOnce you get to our home on Western Ave, you will find plenty of bike parking on our popular rack and street light. We will have candy, snacks, refreshments and even some live entertainment so we encourage you to spend a few hours with us on Saturday April 18.

If you are like us and prefer to take the long way home, continue on our bike route to the campus of Morgan Park Academy. This beautiful high school was almost home to the University of Chicago, The University founder, John D. Rockefeller loved the Morgan Park area so much that it came down to coin flip as to where he would locate the University.  The coin flip ended very well for Hyde Park and Morgan Park got to keep our open spaces.

Southside Brew & View for Special Olympics

“Record Store Day” week will kick off once again at our favorite bar, The Rock Island Public House- Blue Island. TheRIPH will be hosting a showing of the official movie of Record Store Day 2015, Records Collecting Dust, …a documentary film about the music and records that changed all of our lives. This is also a great opportunity raise money and awareness for Special Olympics – Illinois. So in lieu of ticket sales we will be collecting donations at the door, 100% of which will be given to Special Olympics.

Written and directed by San Diego based musician and filmmaker Jason Blackmore, Records Collecting Dust documents the vinyl record collections, origins, and holy grails of alternative music icons Jello Biafra, Chuck Dukowski, Keith Morris, John Reis, and over thirty other underground music comrades.

And what better venue for the underground music scene than The Rock Island Public House?  In it’s very short short time on earth, TheRIPH has become the South Side’s official tap room for craft beers from across the Region.

On Thursday April 16, at 8:00 PM they will clear out the tables, and transform this formal civil war era flour mill/tap room, into a movie theater for vinyl junkies like all of us.

100% of the door collection will be donated to Special Olympics -Illinois. so bring some extra cash for the kids.

Garage Rock Deserves A Garage Record Player


Picture this: A perfect Wednesday afternoon right about sunset, it’s warm but not too warm, the wind is blowing through your hair. The sound of the Ferrari you are driving is more and more hypnotizing with every down shift

Mountains on the left, the ocean on the right and your destination is just ahead. As you pull up to the gate you get the wave from Jim the Security Guard. You talk about what a great season the White Sox had last year for a few minutes before driving up to the Villa that your friend from college bought a few years back.

You hear the youthful voices and splashes by the pool as you walk up to the main entrance. Your friend’s butler, Wilson, meets you at the doorway with a Miller Lite in a can; cause that happens to be how you prefer your beer. You are greeted by your college buddy, talk for a few minutes about nothing in particular then he says “Hey check this out!”

You take the elevator down to the garage that happens to be an exact replica of Tony Stark’s from that movie. Your buddy pulls out a pristine first pressing of Quadrephenia and the fun begins.

DJ’s Choice – #RSD Sleepers

Bee Gees Staying Alive | PROMO

418456374003With The List for Record Store Day becoming larger and larger every year it is getting easier and easier for record companies to slip in a few reissues that are not only popular but extremely easy to find in used vinyl bins around the globe. The 2013 list included “The Gambler” for crying out loud.

So, when we saw the Bee Gees Stayin’ Alive on “The List” we figured some poor soul is going to; once again, overpay for a reissue that is readily available in any dollar bin, flea market or thrift shop.

Our curiosity got the best of us so we looked into it and realized that the Record Store Day folks hit another home run for all the vinyl disc jockeys among us. This is not a reissue of the radio version of  Stayin’ Alive, it is a reissue of the radio station and DJ pre release promo!  A true 12″ 45 coming in at 6:55 this cut is ideal for mixing, scratching or that always needed bathroom break.

Other cuts include Night Fever (4:50), More Than A Woman (4:43), You Should Be Dancing (4:47). We recommend you buy two!

Melanaie Martinez #RSD15 Sleepers

We are all getting really excited about The List this year. Great Dylan, Doors, and Phish releases.

The only complaint we have with RSD releases is that if you as vinyl lover are not up at the crack of dawn and waiting in front of a record shop by 5:00 AM all the “a-Stock” will. be. gone. by 8:15. So how do you decipher the “b-Stock” if you are at 10 AM or, God forbid a noon shopper!

For the next few weeks we will feature some sleepers that will probably be around after all the popular stuff is long gone.

Melanie Martinez – Dollhouse

This release is about as dark as Metallica’s And Justice for All. The ying and yang of the fact it is on pink vinyl seals the deal for us. Melanie Martinez did a great job on “The Voice” and really found “it” on this record. Check out this video and make sure to add this soon to be classic to your collection.
