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.

"bean" you need to take your word suggestion thing off

It plays havoc with a sentence and can make one seem a bit of a tanker (oops, there goeth mine)
Erik, there is that you in the picture? If so you look like a strange mixture of Adam Sandler and mark Wallenberg
Thank you Dirk. I must admit “bean” was calculated. So it reads with a British accent lol
As far looking like a mix of Sandler/Wahlberg - I don’t know if I’m happy or sad. Either way I’m stuck with this mug of mine!
Was anyone not able to get one today due to not being U.K. based or cause it’d sold out? I have one you can have at cost price if so.
I somehow missed two chances to buy online, so I'd love to take this off your hands
Bless Comrades:praying:

xxx Comrade T
I have just taken delivery of the RSD Europe green vinyl
It looks to be the 2010 version with a sticker over the barcode. The sticker number is the same number as the HMV barcode on the rear.
see below the 2010 release next to the 2016 release showing the barcodes and finally, the RSD Europe green vinyl with the sticker over the top
See also the HMV rear
The RSD ie obviously also double vinyl

The Euro RSD is the 2016 release with a sticker over the barcode and the same green vinyl as HMV
What Euro RSD? Where is that record available?

Clarity is still being looked into. I purchased it from a seller I had bought from previous
It’s identical to the HMV release but minus the obi. The sleeve has a sticker over the barcode on the rear also

Thank you for taking the time to respond.
It doesn't appear on any RSD list anywhere though.
Well for the first time in a long time I'm not fussed about the release, but I did enjoy the pictures of the happy shoppers. Looks like they had fun. What more can you ask.
What's the point of this? Paint a Vulgar Picture said it best.
