"Making Vinyl" Detroit: Day One First Panel: "Record Store Day 11 Years Later"

After brief opening ceremonies at "Making Vinyl" event in Detroit October 1st and 2nd, co-founder/organizer Larry Jaffee introduced Record Store Day founder Michael Kurtz who moderated a fascinating panel intended to explain "why and how nearly 750,000 records were sold last April 21st in the U.S." and more interestingly how these releases were chosen, manufactured and distributed.

The discussion with a great panel will be of interest to every vinyl lover and should lead to a greater appreciation of what's involved in such an enormous and complicated undertaking. Records don't just "appear" in stores for RSD. More panel videos coming over the next few days.

The release of Vinyl 2018 was attended by 300 professionals involved in the production of vinyl records from around the world, at the debut event, designed to celebrate the global revival of the industry. The year 2019 will be bigger and better when industry leaders return to Detroit, and it is expected that this will be a much more colorful program telling everything that the industry has learned over the past year, thanks to two days of rich programming and networking. I attended this event and learned a lot for myself. Vinyl is my hobby since my student years, now I work as a writer and I write my essay with my forecast for 2019 "Making Vinyl" event on my blog.
