    Get More Knack, Buck, and Ernie Too

    We hope everyone had a great Record Store Day! This was our second one, and it went swimmingly with Buck Owens Coloring Book EP and The Knack Live In Los Angeles, 1978 10″ selling out across the country. Thank you all for your support. And, just so you understand the method to our madness, those titles we picked for RSD were not random at all.

    RSD: Our Favorite Day Of The Year

    In fact, it’s tomorrow, Saturday, April 21st. Record Store Day means quite a bit to us here at Omnivore, as RSD 2011 saw our first releases hit the street — Big Star’s Third and Buck Owens’ “Close Up The Honky Tonks” b/w “My Heart Skips A Beat.” Both sold out within hours, and we were both proud and grateful that we had put out releases people really dug. If you weren’t lucky enough to get one of the 1,300 Buck singles last year—we’re happy to announce that the tracks are now available digitally at the Omnivore shop, or wherever fine digital music is sold!
