The Great Sell-Off!

The great Treehouse Records Sell-off starts this morning! ALL LPs that were in our store and previously priced at $2-4 have been marked down to $1. Additionally, many more priced as high as $15 have been reduced, often as low as $1. We have a lot of records to clear out before 12/31/17, and we need to make room for a few thousand more coming up from our basement! The liquidation has begun, with bargain hunters on a budget being the first to benefit!

Back in 1958, the mythical William “Cat-Iron” Carradine recorded this obscure but legendary gem in his own living room with folklorist Frederic Ramsey, Jr. The original Folkways LP sells for $100 or thereabouts IF you can find one! This fine reissue from the folks at Exit Stencil Records in Cleveland, Ohio includes a reprint of the original liner notes and photos in a booklet, a gorgeous black and white cover, and translucent yellow vinyl. Carradine recorded one side’s worth of blues and another of blues-inflected gospel. Both are amazing. Twin Cities music fans will be familiar with Koerner, Ray & Glover’s adaptation of “Jimmy Bell,” Cat-Iron’s best known song because of this fact. Poorly distributed, Treehouse Records made the effort to buy two boxes directly from the label, and we are selling it for $19.99, which is $5 cheaper than the label themselves are selling it for! Buy it from the folks on 26th & Lyndale who positively LIVE for reissues like this one!

Record Store Day 2017 This Saturday!

We're really looking forward to RSD this year here at Treehouse and wanted to get a little info out about the shindig. We'll be opening up a couple of hours early at 9am. Since we're not doing any in-store performances this year, we put extra focus on ordering the widest range of releases available. It's safe to say there are a number of truly exciting things hitting the floor on Saturday. Check out our Instagram for some sneak peeks: @treehousempls

Don't forget that we're co-releasing a special Cows reissue with Amphetamine Reptile for the day.  One edition is limited to 25 copies, the other a mere 5. Thomas Hazelmyer (aka Haze XXL) from AmRep will be here when we open to sign copies.

Thanks and we'll see you Saturday!
