Jason Isbell brought up a good point on twitter for people asking him to drop his new album early. His point was that it would crush independent record stores that are already struggling and rely on vinyl releases to survive.

Jason always has his heart in the right place. Role model for many artists...owns his own record label & does what he wants, how he wants to do it.
Don't you ever turn it off


Not sure I agree with the logic though, assuming you just release it early digitally. It seems like the same school of thought that early leaks are damaging financially. I think most people who were going to purchase the vinyl from a local store would do so anyways when everything returns to normal.

They should give us that live LP that's supposedly been done a while.


I was waiting until tomorrow to buy the new PJ vinyl from my indie but with shelter in place they closed. Guess I'll be waiting a while.

But I agree that buying the vinyl and having the tunes are two different things and changing the release date won't change much how many people buy the vinyl.
