Record Store Doc Gets Released on DVD

Text

Brendan Toller’s documentary on the threatened fate of independent record stores, featuring Patrick Carney (The Black Keys), Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers), rock photographer Bob Gruen and Noam Chomsky, among others, was released Thursday nationwide. It was formerly available only in independent record stores, having been released on Record Store Day earlier this year.

The film, I Need That Record! The Death (or Possible Survival) of the Independent Record Store, had been in the works since before 2008 and made the festival circuit, including stops in Tucson, Boston, Portland, Melbourne, Australia and Leeds, England. After a 90-day limited release the DVD is now available for purchase at most major outlets, including Netflix.
