So I guess 2020 isn't ALL bad.  We get more Record Store Days than we expected.  Also, Einstein's Sister is releasing a brand new 7" single featuring the two songs you can listen to below.

  • TWO BRAND NEW SONGS!
  • Includes Transparent Blue 7” Single, CD, Download Card & Lyric Sheet
  • Mixed by NICK DAVIS (Genesis, XTC) at RAK STUDIOS
  • Mastered by MILES SHOWELL (The Beatles, Queen, The Rolling Stones) at ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS

Coop Records is the exclusive Record Store Day distributer for the record.  After then, it'll be available all over the place including CD Baby.

While you're grabbing the new ES single...Reid Robinson from Co-op Records in Moline says you can grab a few other RSD artists like"Shooter Jennings, Paul McCartney, Primus, Rolling Stones, The Replacements, Roger Waters, Jimi Hendrix, Fleedwood Mac, Allman Brothers, Jerry Garcia, The Doors, Black Crowes...lots more."

Plus, Co-op will also have all used products (vinyl, cd, dvd) on sale- buy 3 / get 1 free on Saturday.

They'll be requiring masks, offer sanitizing, have 6 ft spacing stickers clearly displayed for those standing in line.  Normally RSD product is right inside the entrance...but this year they'll have it spread throughout the store to decrease crowding.

Coop is open on Saturday from 9am-9pm at 3727 Avenue of the Cities Moline, IL
