    Today sees the release of Lover-To-Be b/w
    I Thought You Were Dead 7" red vinyl.

    Both tracks were recorded in 2017 as part of the Low In High School sessions (confirmed by Damiano Mazzarella who contributes vocals - via his IG and by the vinyl itself).

    With no clear details, it appears there are somewhere between 1000-4000 copies of this record worldwide.
    That said: by hook or by crook the B-side will eventually appear here for people to hear.
    There have always been decent people here who strive to share rarities and this track won't be an exception.
    Even if I have to tunnel through my storage locker to find my turntable.

    This year's RSD has a very varied mixture of rarities and the general feeling I just experienced at the midnight opening event I attended was positive and friendly - no tension over the rarer items.

    The Bowie stuff went quickly.
    I managed to nab a Propaganda box set - The Eight Testaments of Propaganda (not had a ZTT record in a long time),
    Lover-To-Be, Lee Scratch Perry 7" (with Boz, Johnny Bridgewood & Woodie Taylor), Clockwork Orange 7", Bowie - Pinups picture disc & Prince 12". Overall, a pretty good haul. There was an eclectic mix of things on offer this year and I'd guess the industry will only offer more of the same next year.
    RSD really does appear to have grown in popularity.

    I missed out on the great looking Bowie - Just a Gigolo blue vinyl, Bronski Beat pic disc, Art Of Noise, Suede (coming out anyway) and The Fall, but hopefully the Ebay vultures will go easy on me.

    I know very few people went record shopping at midnight, but feel free to contribute your successes and regrets if you are participating in RSD today.

    Tired & spent out.

      What store you talking about? Did you read my post numb nuts, I got them from a friend in Italy, or else he was selling them on Discogs. I’ve shifted all 10 for £12 a piece, not a bean to be made, zero profit.

      Oh now the spiced rum is kicking in the truth avails ..... “ I couldn’t leave with just 2 singles ( Moz & The Wedding Present) so I had to buy something else” so 2 more Joy Division Vinyls have appeared. That’s on top of the 7 inch Atmosphere picture disc he got from Sweden yesterday, bought for £87 ! But of course they only made 10 of those..... I’ll never be able to retire at this rate.

      Edit (April 14): with the clear sound rip now appeared I have to admit the song is „so nice!“ :)

      After hearing the Flac rip...

      So good! It's nice to hear this wildly unpredictable bouncy dark song. That's partially why I fell in love with Morrissey. Bouncy dark emotional songs with a wicked or self-deprecating sense of humor.

      It's all been, it's all been so nice.

      The most surprising thing about the physical single is how poor quality the cover photo is - it's so low resolution, that it's blurry as hell - like a blown up screenshot of a Google Image preview, and makes it look like some really cheap bootleg release. I'm amazed whoever was behind the art wasn't able to source a better quality version.

      Other than that - it's pretty fab. Love the new B Side.

      Wrong. It reached Spain, and not only Mandrid and Barcelona but other cities too.

      No wonder, after it was posted worldwide via facebook on The Smiths & Morrissey Rarities almost two hours later...

      Being a boring type that trawls the Morrissey hashtag on IG, I've seen lots of Record Store Day posts.
      Some of the areas where people have reported getting the record:
      Without going through them all, it definitely appears there may have been an issue with the US getting stock (or collectors there didn't post on Instagram :) ). I did see one from Texas & California, but very, very few and far between.
      Just a cursory look - nothing definitive being asserted.
      The one thing I was surprised by in the UK was how early Warners & other reps had supplied shops. I was able to see & handle the Moz disc well before it was due on the shelves and thought it would be the same Stateside.
      I hope some stock makes its way there for collectors at some point as Ebay can be vile at times.
      Best of luck.
