Record Store Day 2014 – Sugar Free All Stars

What does Record Store Day mean in the Kindie world? Sadly, not much. The cost of vinyl isn’t exactly the cheapest thing in the world to produce and the family genre isn’t exact a cash cow. Dan Zanes has done a Record Store Day release in the past, Justin Roberts Lullaby was released on vinyl and the lovely new Walter Martin record We’re All Young will be released on vinyl next month. So in short, there is not much vinyl in the Kindie world.

I grew up on music and a heavy dose came on vinyl (or 8 track.) But here’s why I want more Kindie records for families. The records I listened to were mine. My older siblings had their records, my parents had their records. But I had my own. The Muppets record, the Pete Seeger Sesame Street record, Larry Groce’s Disney records. I liked my parents music, but I couldn’t connect to it. I did with my records. We need to create that environment for our kids today.

Fear not vinyl enthusiasts, at least one* Kindie artist is putting out a release this Saturday at your favorite record store, Sugar Free Allstars. They’re releasing a 45 of “My Daddy’s Record Collection” which you can listen to right here.

Can’t make it to record store day? That’s OK. You can pre-order the 45 on their website. Those who do buy the record will also receive a download card to receive the digital version of the songs. The songs will also be available via the iTunes store and various streaming services.

*It’s not listed on the Record Store Day website, but according to this interview, Caspar Babypants will be releasing some vinyl this Saturday too.
