RSD UK 2020: "Honey, You Know Where To Find Me" 10" vinyl released today (August 29, 2020)

Record Store Day (number 13) this year has seen a variety of changes.
Pre-covid, the plan (as per usual) was to release a long list of rarities and collectables.
People would then queue and try hard to get their wants lists met at their indie record store.
Februray 20, 2020, we shared a rumour sourced from the Reps that the 12" (thought at the time) was ready for listing.
This was confirmed the next day with a link to the physical product via 'Bullmoose'.
RSD was due to take place on April 18, 2020, but world events would bring about the end to this plan.
March 4, 2020, Central posted an image of several of these records saying there were 3 tracks on the B-side (there isn't a B-side).
That would indicate they were already made and ready to distribute, but have sat for 5+ months waiting.
RSD then announced (April 29. 2020) the revised plan to split the list up in to 3 and 'drop' over 3 dates with Morrissey being in the first one.

That all said, today finally sees the first of 3 scheduled 'drops' for the revised Record Store Day, 2020 in the UK.
Amongst many sees a Morrissey 10" transparent vinyl featuring: Honey, You Know Where To Find Me, Fantastic Bird, You Should Have Been Nice To Me.
All of these tracks were taken from the 2009 'Legacy Edition' of Southpaw Grammar.
Although bringing nothing new to the table, it was clear that the cover star was something Morrissey wanted on a record.
Lili St. Cyr was first suggested by Central as a cover star for When You Close Your Eyes back in June, '19.
The image was taken by Maurice Seymour Studio (Maurice & Seymour Zeldman).

Initially proposed single:

The product itself looks great with light behind it.

Around the edge of the record it reads:
"Play this side only. No Audio on other side. 33 ⅓ RPM. Morrissey: 1. Honey, You Know Where To Find Me 2. Fantastic Bird 3. You Should Have Been Nice to Me ℗ 2009 & © 2020 Morrissey under exclusive license to BMG Rights Management (UK) LTD...." (ends in usual copyright warning)
There is no matrix message on this vinyl.

Lots of indie retailers appear to be doing all sorts of innovative things to stay afloat during these difficult times.
This has included flexible ways to secure copies of items on the main RSD list by mail order, pre-ordering and some will offer the queue and hope approach too.
If you enjoy RSD and however you may be participating - best of luck.
The record, from a collecting point of view, is well worth owning IMHO.
Regards,
FWD.

On closer inspection (ie, reading the text around the edge of the disc) it’s clear that the music has actually been pressed on the wrong side of the disc. It says “play this side only, no audio on other side” - but the grooves are ON that other side... as is the ink / etching / whatever. Total manufacturing cock-up.
It sounds like you've got a rare mispress. On my version, the audio is on the side that says "play this side only". The picture is printed on the opposite side.

It does seem that way, doesn't it? I'm not really one for collecting mispress discs - I bought the record to play it. I'm actually bloody annoyed about it as I had to travel to collect. :-/

deep fried mars bars are a myth in scotland which no one i know has ever tasted or seen one.dare say some chippys do it,justin beiber had one in glasgow and loved it.
You, sir - are obviously “in the loop”. Thanks for giving us the update on Beiber’s dietary preferences. His taste in greasy, fried snacks matches that of yours in music. ;)

I paid £15.
Seen it up to £17.

You paid 15 quid for a poorly pressed Melvis “picture-disc”? You do all realize that someone has to dispose of the garbage you’ve collected, once you’re dead?

Dying with this in your “collection” isn’t gonna make for a decent legacy. ...and someone with the moniker “FWD” outta know better.

Have some class, taste and respect for yourself and those who follow you.

That's a lovely collection of beautiful songs on this 10". And it looks nice too when you hold it against the light...
“This 17£, single sided vinyl looks amazing through the light”.

Blip, blurb, bleep.You’re off your nut.

The songs are rubbish and the pressing is half-baked garbage. ...but maybe it’ll serve you well, hanging in your front window, like stained wax. It’ll also tell everyone everything they need to know about your taste in music.
