Typically we're used to seeing late night host Jimmy Fallon
interview the likes of Taylor Swift
, Justin Timberlake
, Ariana Grande, Chris Evans, and other notable names on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," but the roles were reversed when Fallon stopped by a Hamptons record store in honor of the national music celebration.
Founded in 2007 by independent record store owners and employees, National Record Store Day pays tribute to the inimitable culture of a record store and the unique role the independently owned stores play in local communities. On the East End, Innersleeve Records is one of those gems where you can find an amazing selection of new and vintage vinyl, cassette tapes, and music memorabilia, and the Amagansett record store had a very special guest stop by on Record Store Day. Jimmy Fallon, who has a house in the Hamptons, hung out with WEHM's Anthony Cafaor at Innersleeve, where they spoke about the Hamptons, filming "The Tonight Show" in New York, and, of course, his music collection.
Fallon, who is a frequent visitor of Innersleeve Records, raved about the store's collection. "Innersleeve knows what's up. This is the place to be," Fallon told Cafaor. "They give great advice on records, they don't just try to sell you stuff. They give you the good stuff."
Right now, some of Fallon's favorites include the new U2
album, John Prine, Frank Sinatra
, The Green Album
by Weezer, and Courtney Barnett. "Invest some stock in this girl," the late night host said about Barnett. "She's going to be gigantic." He also recommended Willie Nelson
"If you don't know this record, this record is just killer," said Fallon.
The entertainment enthusiast recently got a turntable and thinks that's the way to experience music. "I'm going to raise them [my kids] on vinyl," shared Fallon. "It's a warmer sound."
As for bringing "The Tonight Show" back to the East Coast, Fallon was thrilled to have the opportunity. "It's really fun doing it in New York because there's so much talent," noted Fallon. "I mean, speaking in music alone, the scene from Brooklyn to out here. There's always great shows here [in Amagansett]," the host pointed out. "I know we're two doors down from Stephen Talkhouse
, where I've seen Toots and the Maytals, and some great shows. You gotta support the local scene."
