Record Store Day 2017

41 posts in this topic

Anyone planning to try to pick up the new picture disc version of Red Hill Mining Town? 

 

Or any other lp's you have an eye on tomorrow? 

 

Any tips or out of the way places that plan to stock?

 

I feel a 1987 Joshua Tree release day vibe coming on imagining myself in a queue somewhere far too early in the morning somewhere in the north east of England...

 

Post up any pics or vids here and we will try to feature them here & social media & beyond...

 

 

Happy hunting..

I'm planning on trying. Nerves have been wrecked for a few days now just thinking about trying to get it because there are 3 stores around me that could potentially have it and my cohorts that usually are with me on RSD can't be there. Also hoping to get my hands on The Cure ones that are coming out.

For if you want to keep the single in mint, unplayed condition or don't have a small record store near home... the track is now available on Spotify:


iTunes

I'd be more than happy to grab Ramones singles box. Unfortunately could be just a dream for me as there is no participating indie shop in my country...

In the US, the average is $14.98, but they can extend that up to 20%, from what I have read.

Either some stores themselves sold them early to customers or are selling themselves on eBay, which kind of goes against the whole idea of Record Store Day as they are supposed to be sold only on that day. A shop locally quoted me $15.99 over the phone as their price for tomorrow. With only 7000 made for Worldwide release, its certainly going to be a popular item.

Been pitched outside Revo Records in Halifax since 1130pm at front of queue. Now 0430am and a few brave souls have joined me. Apparently they have 4 copies of the picture disc here AND hot chocolate for the early birds

Good luck PeterM1. I'm about to leave to join the queue at my nearest store. Their queue started at 4.15 yesterday afternoon. They have told me they are getting 12 copies so fingers crossed.

Just settled down in the queue. Approx 50 - 70 in front of me. The shop will only let 15 in at a time, then one in, one out, which I think is a good shout. Small shop, no idea how they got 12. Hundred Records, Romsey.

I was lucky to get one of the 2 copies my local record store had.  Also picked up The Doors Live At The Matrix San Francisco, March 7 1967 & Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Live At The Hammersmith Odeon 1975, 4 LP set

I got mine today, was in the queue from around 6.00... around 60 in front of me

 

was getting worried more when I could see loads walking around the store with a copy... until i seen there were probably another dozen on the shelve (so probably had about 30 or so originally) .

 

Thankfully the ones walking around, didnt head to the till, as I got the bonus of the mag with mine, and they only had 2 left :D

 

BTW mine is 72/1500 (so a nice low number :D )

I also both both Cure albums, which the girl thought were the same album and was very nearly not going to sell the second one, until I mentioned one is the acoustic version, got the Bruce 4x album and then bought the Madness single for my sister.. thats my lot, got all that I wanted , plus a bonus ltd booklet for the u2 disc :D

 

 

was only expecting to be able to get maybe 2

 

PS, I wonder how many won't break the seal... I'm not and mine cost £14

I had ordered a copy and bought it in the store today for 16,90 euro.

 

There was a little queue in front of the shop at opening time and the U2 record was definitely the most popular amongst the early birds.

 

I guess the shop must have had at least 20 copies available.
