Visited today in local record store, picked up my order (Sunday bloody sunday/Two hearts Beast as one 7” single and one Megadeth cd). I was asked, am I interested in purchasing Europe Ep? He promised to save one for me.

My record store of choice will not reserve one for me.  They are only getting six copies.  I may pull rank and call the owner.  I've been buying from his store(s) since I was a little boy.  (all local to my state and now in a few cities)  The problem is that he's gotten older and I don't know if he'll remember me.  I think he will because I was in those stores every day. If need be, I'm lining up at 6 am.  I am not missing out of this one.   

Yes, the stores that stick more strictly to the rules of RSD will not reserve copies (so, llmajoki is a very fortunate person). Showing up early is a good strategy.

I have found two places locally that aren’t overly far away and also aren’t far from one another (in case I end up needing to go to both to hopefully get a copy). Saturday will be a very “chock-full-of-U2” day if I can get a copy; I am seeing UF again later in the evening. 😎

Let’s hope we all get copies! 🍀

I got up early and caught a 6am train to a nearby town to get my copy. When I left my home it was cold and dark , just before sunrise and so quiet and all the birds were twittering away  I thought to

Inside.

It is heavy, good quality glossy paper that is folded in two to create a pamphlet about 12x12. On the front is the entire Chaplin speech. Inside both pages are taken up of a live shot of the audience

That's what I'm going to do.  I was pissy because I've been buying music from the same company since I was a boy.  It is what it is.  My being ornery does prompt me to get my butt out of bed early Saturday morning.  I still want that record on my music wall, along with my favorite IE lithograph.

It's Friday evening, the day before RSD 2019, and RSD 2019 releases are already listed on eBay at inflated prices.

Not speculative listings either - item in hand listings.

I was about 25th in line, but the store I went to had 5 copies (I got the second one; one fellow was in line in front of me who got one too - I congratulated his good taste 😎).

$26.99 here. The other store I could have gotten it from had it for a dollar cheaper, but, since they had only ordered one, I took my chances at the other location. I don’t regret the strategy.

A lovely piece of art!

Got mine - $24.99, along with the Clapton and the Green Day. The Dylan was the first thing to go at both stores I checked out. The owner of my regular store took my name & number, in case the Dylan turned up (may have been moved/misfiled). At the other place, the guy was on the phone telling someone that the Dylan was gone as I was looking for it.
