HMV: Bona Drag LTD Edition vinyl released today (July 24, 2021)


Today sees Morrissey’s Bona Drag re-released amongst 36 other artist's limited edition albums to commemorate HMV's Centenary.
For all intents and purposes, this is the 2010 Major Minor expanded 20th anniversary edition of the record (not forgetting it was re-pressed again in 2016 too), except in coloured vinyl and has a HMV obi strip with the 100 years information.
Along the edge of the strip 'teal vinyl' is mentioned.
There is no matrix message on either record.
The sleeve contains the Zodiac car picture foldout poster:


HMV's appear to have used the same reservation in the queue system as last year and it was: fill in a form/collect when open.
The free coffee was a nice touch.

According to HMV's Twitter & website, from 4pm: any left to sell will be available via their online store (which was done for Vauxhall & I too):

Saturday July 24 marks the company's centenary vinyl 'Exclusives Day', an event in which record collectors will be able to purchase vinyl in stores (and online from 4pm) that are available for one day only.

There's BIN's for £100 - utterly disgusting.
The 'PS5' scalper mentality appears to be on the rise.
the actual selling prices have already fallen from 80, to 70, to 60, to 55 - so the high profit seeking hasn't worked for most of them.

I agree if you never have gotten into the brilliance of the Pixies check them out. There is a famous interview clip on YouTube where David Bowie is explaining how the only music besides experimental noise rockers sonic youth to come out of the 80’s that he found interesting were The Pixies.
