Jimmy Fallon’s Record Store Day Haul is Impressive
In this edition of "Celebrities are Real People Too," we find Tonight Show host and all-around funny guy Jimmy Fallon scouring his local record store in Long Island on Record Store Day. Fallon's pedigree as a music fan should never be doubted, as he (along with his Tonight Show crew) has revolutionized the late night television musical performance throughout his tenure on NBC. On Record Store Day, as you'll find out, he's just like everyone else as he made the trip out to Long Island's Innersleeve Records to sift through all of the exclusive releases.
In the end, Fallon ended up with several notables including U2's new album Songs of Innocence as well as John Prine's September 78 live record and Frank Sinatra's Songs, Willie Nelson's Teatro and Courtney Barnett's "Kim Caravan" single which he was very excited to pull. As he explained on WEHM, "Invest stock in this girl, she's going to be gigantic." Fallon also went on to say he picked the Frank Sinatra record because "my wife's name is Nancy, so I had to get that one."
He also had some great advice for the young people out there, saying that everyone should go out and buy a turntable and listen to vinyl. Fallon also took to Twitter to share some photos of his new additions.
Buy a turntable if you don't have one and get to your local record store! #RecordStoreDay pic.twitter.com/Kh9w6iUzrp
