The new record, “ONE FOR THE DANCEHALLS” is being printed as I write this. With record stores shutting down, record labels going under, it’s no wonder that the rest of the music business world (except for some punk rock labels who knew long-long ago) is catching up to what Stag Records has been doing for years…BE INDEPENDENT! Big box stores such as Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Target only sell a small small portion of the music that’s out there today. Where as Indie Stores (like Cactus in Houston or Waterloo in Austin) sell artists that are still even hard to find on-line. Look for us in Indie Stores as well as some of the big-box stores too. Why is it that labels keeping making CD’s more expensive every year, then cut them down to damn near nothing???
We decided that since the country has a huge unemployment rate right now, that we needed to give the Hardchargers more bang for their buck. So we are putting together a JD Christmas Package that includes the new record on LP Vinyl, on Compact Disc, and download sheet with all the songs on it, PLUS a Holiday single CD called “Christmas In Jail,” all for a lousy $25 bucks!!!
What made me do vinyl this time? Besides collecting wax for years & years, last Christmas my girl got me this great tweed portable 50’s style flip-top record player online by CROSLEY RECORD PLAYERS (for under $100.00) And, I brought it out to the garage where I keep my hot rods and felt like I was about 12 yrs. old again!!! Sure, I have a nice turn table inside, but that’s not the point. This one I could bring anywhere and I LOOOVE the way it sounds through the old tubes and the little speaker, just like it sounded when I was a kid. I got gifts last year that we’re waaaay more expensive, but none meant as much to me as that damn portable record player!
Anywanker, if you don’t care about handing your money over to corporate middle men, than you can PRE-ORDER the new JD record at STAGRECORDS.COM right NOW!
