Incoming: Star Wars Turntable for Record Store Day

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, April 5, 2017

3309 If you're old enough to have seen Star Wars in the theaters originally, you're probably familiar with records.  You may not be familiar with the format's cult status as a collectible and as a sound delivery system, with Record Store Day as a twice-annual shopping holiday with limited edition records, exclusives, launches, and people getting in the damn way of the record store who never shop their otherwise when you're trying to buy your damn Frank Zappa and Iggy and the Stooges records.  (You know who you are, false Stinkweeds customers.)

Anyway, this year there's going to be a Crosley Star Wars edition turntable.  This is a nifty collectible with cool artwork on the lid - if you're an audiophile or just want the best record player a couple c-notes can buy, this may not be the one for you.   But it'll look cool next to the Ramones-edition one that you also don't actually use for listening.  It should hit April 22.
