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..

In case you missed Bono talking to Chris Evans yesterday about it, here's a link to audio

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

 

Google Play

 

and some other streaming services/digital stores...

 

enjoy it!!! =)

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.

Thanks Westy. 12 is quite a few. Chap at Revo was very happy with 4. Time is approaching 6am now and queue is up to 17 so makes me much happier I came so INSANELY early 😉

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
