Creative Director, Brookvale Records
Dear Fellow Vinyl Fans,
Happy Record Store Day 2016! All of us at Brookvale Records were very proud to have two indie exclusives on the official Record Store Day list for the first time this year. Unfortunately, one of them has been delayed. Our 20th Anniversary Edition of “From Dusk Till Dawn: Music From The Motion Picture” will now arrive a few weeks after #RSD16. Due to the initial test pressings not passing our strict quality control standards, we had to reorder new tests from the plant. Getting them exactly right has delayed the final product, which will now arrive a few weeks after RSD.
Though we are disappointed with this delay, we assure you it will be worth the wait. The title will still be available for pre-order at many RSD retailers on 4/16/16. Though each store is different, we encourage you to download and print the Pre-Order Voucher below and bring it to the counter on Saturday. If you’re unable to pre-order at your local store, just let us know and we’ll help you secure a copy. We now expect this release to hit shelves roughly 4 weeks after Record Store Day.
To tide you over until then, we’ve sent your local RSD retailer a stunning Foil-Stamped Jacket Sample for you to preview in person, so be sure to ask for it if you don’t see it displayed! Believe me when I say this jacket must be held to be believed. It features incredible new artwork from illustrator Matt Ryan (The Works of Matt Ryan), soft touch coating, deluxe printed sleeves, and sequential gold foil-stamping. Take a video tour of this fully reimagined packaging on our YouTube channel.
Here at Brookvale Records, we pride ourselves on exceedingly high standards for every aspect of our releases. From the audio sourcing and remastering to the restoration and creation of artwork true to the artist’s original vision, we work tirelessly to ensure our reissues are the absolute best they can be. We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers because of the unexpected delay for this release. As an independent vinyl reissue label – and one that was born in the back of a 45-year-old independent record store – we thank you for your continued support on Record Store Day 2016 and beyond!
Keep On Spinning,
P.S. Remember, our second Indie Exclusive for RSD 2016 is already en route to your local store and we couldn’t be prouder of it. Our reissue of Soul Asylum’s triple-platinum “Grave Dancers Union” is the first in the U.S. since 1992, and was modeled after our sold-out Social Distortion “True Replica” reissue for #RSD15. The new 2-LP set on translucent colored vinyl features significant upgrades to both the audio and packaging while staying true to the artist’s original vision. Don’t miss it!
