The vinyl, jackets, stickers, and polybags for the new Afro Funk reissue are trickling into our offices. Everything will be here by the end of this week. That means we’re ready for ASSEMBLY PARTY TIME! That’s right, it’s that time once again when we invite all our fellow vinyl addicts to the SSR offices to help assemble a new release. We have already assembled the limited edition pre-orders, so they will be ready for the taking at the end of the night – we only have a select number set aside, so please rsvp to reserve a limited edition version of the album. We do need help with the standard records, though.
We order all the different parts for our releases (jacket, vinyl, download card, etc) from different vendors. Rather than ship all the parts to the vinyl manufacturer and have them assemble it, we bring the assembly in house. This allows us a level of quality control that could never be achieved via 3rd party assembly. It’s also a great way to open our doors for the local community to come in and check out our operation from the inside.
Here is how it works. Come on by our offices in uptown and help assemble Afro Funk records. There will be FREE local pizza and beer. There will also be a FREE copy of the limited edition version of the album (screen printed jacket with different artwork, and blue and white “smushed” vinyl) for those who help out – make sure to rsvp to guarantee a limited version (standard versions will be available if ltd editions run out). It’s a great way to meet other record enthusiasts in the Twin Cities. We’ve got a set of turn tables in the office, so feel free to bring a few records to share with the group. Check out the details below. We hope to see you there.
