Permanent Records and the new vinyl store

By David Wicik

Talking to the duo who've set down roots in a hostile music sales world.

Making a brick and mortar record store work in a time of virtually unfettered digital file-sharing and generally declining revenues in the music industry takes a special kind of brilliance. It’s been five years since giants Coconuts and Tower Records shuttered their doors. One imagines that even Nick Hornby’s fictional Championship Vinyl would be facing deep profit gashes in this market.

Co-owners of Chicago vinyl hotspot and indie label Permanent Records Lance Barresi and Liz Tooley could probably teach a course in the current landscape of music commerce. Their own physical store opened in 2006 in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village neighborhood, and instead of eking out a narrow margin, it has actually managed to flourish. So much so, in fact, that Permanent will be opening a new store this summer in Los Angeles.

and in music history for the day:

In 1958, Buddy Holly kicked off the first night of a 43-date tour at the Brooklyn Paramount Theatre, New York. Alan Freed’s Big Beat Show also featured Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Frankie Lymon, The Diamonds, Billy Ford, Danny & The Juniors, The Chantels, Larry Williams, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, The Pastels, Jo-Ann Campbell and Ed Townsend. On most days, the acts played two shows.

In 1964, Jan and Dean's double sided hit, "Dead Man's Curve" / "New Girl in School" enters the US chart where it will rise to #8.

In 1967, Van Morrison recorded "Brown Eyed Girl", which will enter the Billboard chart next August and rise to #10. The song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2007.

Also in 1967, the Beatles worked on the Sgt. Pepper track, “Good Morning, Good Morning,” at EMI Studios, London. John Lennon, who was inspired to write the song from a Kellogg’s Cornflake TV commercial, decided he wanted to end the song with animal sound effects.

Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young's "Woodstock" was released in 1970.

In 1974, Delta blues singer and guitarist Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup, who wrote “That’s All Right, Mama” (covered by Elvis Presley) and “My Baby Left Me,” died of a stroke at the age of 68.

In 1982, David Crosby of the Byrds and CSNY is arrested in San Diego for possession of drugs and a gun. When asked why he carried the gun, his reply was two words: "John Lennon."

In 1985, 6000 radio stations in the US and Canada simultaneously played "We Are the World", the fundraising song for African famine relief recorded by 45 superstar performers. Sales of the single, album, video and related merchandise initially raised more than $38 million US.

In 1998, Kiss played the first of five sold-out nights on their ‘Alive II’ World Tour at the Tokyo Budokan, Japan.

In 2001, the artist formerly known as both Puffy and Puff Daddy said in an MTV interview that he now wanted to be known as “P. Diddy.” In August 2005, he changed his stage name again to simply “Diddy.” and in the same year, i changed my name to an indescribable symbol, then to bobbo, but now, just call me bob.....

birthdays today include Lady Gaga (Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta)(1986) and Reba McEntire (1955) among others.

Robbie Robertson Launches His Latest Album, How To Become Clairvoyant, With Performances on "Late Show with David Letterman" and "The View"

How To Become Clairvoyant Is Out April 5th

NPR Music's "First Listen" Begins Today; Robertson Guests On "Rockline" April 6th

SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Robbie Robertson will perform his Top 10 single "He Don't Live Here No More" on "Late Show with David Letterman" on April 5th, coinciding with the release of his new album, How To Become Clairvoyant (Macro-Biotic Records/429 Records). He'll also appear on "The View" on April 6th. The shows will mark the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's first television appearances in more than 10 years.

NPR Music is giving fans an exclusive "First Listen" to How To Become Clairvoyant, streaming the album in its entirety for a week, beginning today. This Saturday, April 2nd, Robertson will be inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame (CSHF). In June, Canada Post will issue a stamp with Robertson's likeness as part of its Canadian Recording Artists stamp series. He will guest on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" on April 6th and tape "World Cafe with David Dye" in May while at WXPN's Non-COMMvention.

How To Become Clairvoyant features Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Trent Reznor, Tom Morello and Robert Randolph along with vocalists Angela McCluskey, Rocco Deluca, Dana Glover and Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes). The collection was co-produced by Robertson and long-time collaborator Marius de Vries (Massive Attack, Bjork, Rufus Wainwright).

"This soulful record is Robertson's best yet," observed Goldmine. "For all of the now-legendary songs that Robertson penned, he tended to shy away from writing about himself, which makes the revealing nature of his first album in more than ten years such a wonderful surprise," said Relix. "How To Become Clairvoyant finds Robertson tackling personal topics such as his breakup with The Band ('This Is Where I Get Off'), the guitarists who inspired his innovative sound ('Axman') and his early days backing Ronnie Hawkins ('When the Night Was Young')."

In addition to the CD, three special editions of How To Become Clairvoyant will be available. The deluxe edition, available exclusively at Best Buy for a month beginning April 5th, will include a second CD with demos of five of the album's tracks – "The Right Mistake," "He Don't Live Here No More," "Fear of Falling," "This Is Where I Get Off" and "Madame X" – and an outtake of "Houdini," a song that does not appear on the album. Starting April 5th, fans can pre-order a two-disc, gatefold edition of How To Become Clairvoyant on 180-gram vinyl and a limited edition collector's set at . The collector's set includes the vinyl and CD editions of the album plus 10 bonus tracks, provided in both CD and vinyl formats, a DVD with three multi-track mixes, a 70-page, full-color book with album artwork, lithographs and additional art, and other cool extras such as a set of tarot cards designed especially for the collection.
