Ultra Rare Warner Brothers In-Store Play LPs
I decided to post these today to celebrate Record Store Day. Here are two super hard to find Warner Brothers In-Store Airplay LPs that were distributed only to record stores to play in their shops. The difference between these and the "Loss Leaders" albums (see earlier post) is that the In-Store LPs were NEVER offered to the public and were truly promotional only. Also, there is a DJ who introduces the songs so that the record store shoppers always knew what they were listening to for maximum sales potential. First up, is "Dance To The Beat Of Looney Tunes" from early 1973. Check out the track listing on this one!
Sparks, Bob Seger, The Kinks, Pretty Things, Little Feat and others make this a killer sampler and this 2LP set fits nice on 1 CD.
There's also a series of 2 LP sets called "WARNER/REPRISE DISPLAY CASE" and so far, I've only found Volume 4.
Jimi Hendrix, Todd Rundgren, Quincy Jones, Fanny and other cool tracks fill out this lengthy sampler from 1972.
