Contest: Win the Modern Vinyl Mystery Box! [Winner Announced]

Contests / News / Record Store Day 2015 / April 17, 2015

Over $100 value up for grabs to those with true music knowledge

Last year, we started up a tradition of giving away a mystery box on Record Store Day. The box contains over $100 of vinyl/music goodness and to enter, you have to ace our Record Store Day quiz. I’ve personally selected each of the items in the box and some hints regarding what the winner will take home are listed below:

  • Following last year’s additions of Inside Llewyn Davis and Spinal Tap, this year’s box includes another of my favorite music films.
  • A live performance of one of the best reunions in recent years.
  • A NYC music traveler on vinyl.
  • A couple must-have music books.
  • A couple RSD releases from this year.
  • Some other random items, both MV and vinyl related.

Now, to enter, we’ll be testing your music and Record Store Day knowledge. I’ve listed 10 questions below, each of which you must answer correctly to be entered into the random drawing. Please use the form below to answer the questions (put answers in the appropriate section, along with 1., 2., etc.). That’s all you need to do to enter.
