Press Release :
It seems like only last year we were taking cursory notice of the first annual Record Store Day, and here it is one year later and there's another. Funny how traditions work out. The first Xmas was probably like this, though with admittedly less exclusive vinyl. It's remarkable how many people have jumped on this bandwagon so quickly, even more remarkable that we did, as we're not much for wagons. And yet, for the past month we've done nothing but hand-stuff LPs in anticipation of this new national holiday. That's right, your Numero Group, along with 9 other on-the-cusp-of-cool reissue labels, have made something that will force you to get out of bed and be at your local record emporium when the doors open. Witnesseth:

This LP Crashes Hard Drives is a limited edition (2000 copies) LP only compilation that was built by an all-star cast of labels. Light In The Attic, Daptone, Now Again, Honest Jons, Jazzman, Finders Keeepers, Vampi Soul, Timmion, Sublime Frequencies, and Numero looked at the bogus 7" bullshit being bandied about and upped the ante considerably. For a mere $9.99 you'll walk away with a 10-track, high quality LP housed in a gorgeous gatefold tip-on style sleeve and stuffed to the gills with a full color Numero catalog, stickers, a CD sampler, a magazine, and a poster. Oh, David Fricke and Charles Aaron wrote the liner notes, so there's that too. For the same price you can buy a Leonard Cohen 45 and play it once, or you could slap this big boy on the turntable and flip endlessly for hours.

There will be no digital component for this release, no mail order sales, and no mercy. You must visit an independent record shop on 4/18 to get a copy. Do not come crying to us when your Numero collection has a big fat hole in it, we will have nothing for you. For those in Chicago, Numero will be spinning records at Dusty Groove from 12-2PM. DG is also having a massive sale on all Numero product, so come on out to pick up that copy of Renaldo Domino's Sincere 45 you've been wanting since you saw him perform at the Eccentric Soul Revue.
