    If anyone can snag me a copy of the Foo Fighters LP I would greatly appreciate it. I have only one record shop in my town and they only got 3 copies.

    The line for the record store was about 4 - 5 blocks long and we were there from 7:30 to about 10:30 walking out the door with purchases.

    I was really surprised the Black Sabbath wasn't in the store, but now that I see the only store that had it as a RSD release was in Great Britain I guess that explains that. Are there regional differences in releases like that?

    Snagged the Gorillaz box on discogs for $200. Pretty shitty there's nothing special about it and it doesn't include The Fall. Really just a box set for lazy people who don't want to buy the albums separately (like clearly myself). Now I've got an extra copy of The Now Now to sell...

    really? I saw in one place that each album has extra tracks on it. that sucks.

    Statistics
    • Have: 209
    • Want: 76
    that's a wild ratio.

    What Makes Record Store Day Releases an Investment Opportunity?



    I don't think that this is the key takeaway from what RSD is supposed to be but then again consider the source.

    Also if this is what the key takeaway is, please let me know. I thought it was about supporting your local record stores hence the "only available in-store" aspect of it. If I wanted to find one of the six available Boards of Canada vinyl releases I sure as shit wouldn't find it in Vancouver.

    Missed out on the St. Vincent 7" as well. Also had Add N to (X) and Lindsey Stirling in my cart but both were gone by the time I entered in CC info. Balls indeed.

    edit - maybe spent more than I should've on ebay last night, but I was able to get the St.V 7"

    I mean, it's a double edged sword. While it's masked as being a way to support your local record store, it's really just a way for record labels to hop in with reissues that are way way over priced and we all know it. But we all eat it up because some labels pay attention and actually release stuff that people want. But most ends up being dumb reissues for shit most wouldn't want. But after going to record store day every year since the first one, I'd say that underneath the corporatization of the whole day, it still ends up being a day about supporting local record stores. Every year the people who are only interested in scoring the limited shit for investment/resale reasons get in, get out and then the rest of the day is just tons of music fans coming in and buying music regardless of the RSD exclusives. And there are a lot of people who don't buy vinyl the way most of us in this thread do. A lot of people only really buy records on RSD, so it brings in people from rural areas, full families, out of towners, etc etc. And from my experiences, at least here in Kansas City, after the initial hour long rush of opening doors, it doesn't feel like it's just a day for people to scalp exclusive releases. My favorite local store thanks everyone every year after RSD saying the amount they made from that one day will pay the rent for the rest of the year. So honestly, regardless of any kind of corporatized investment culture within RSD, that's an amazing thing for a local business to say. Especially during a Pandemic year.

    Just my take on it though.

    It's not for me, but I can't deny that it looks nice.

    The guy should have proof read that sticker though!

    My Only a Lad also showed up today. Also found a copy of the new Hesitation Marks so I've almost got them all. Just need the "Soon" releases to hurry the hell up.

    I already don't want it, that way I won't be disappointed when I don't get it.

    The pressing of Demon Days in the G Box has one of the weirdest pressing defects I've ever seen. It isn't audible, but there's this weird etched scribble on some of Fire Coming Out of a Monkey's Head. It's like they realized they started to etch the matrix in the wrong spot and just scribbled it out. It causes no audible issues during the track.
