Ugh, I hate record store day. I guess I'll be buying it on ebay for $100. That Cure acoustic 12" seems interesting. I wish they would just release their MTV unplugged recordings though.
 
'Limited' to 5000 copies. Five. Thousand.

I won't be rushing off to Piccadilly Records and will probably pick one up from eBay later on.

Limited, yes, but for how long?
Time is on your side.
When it sells well, maybe there will be another 5000 copies on sale due to public demand?
Cheers!

Love the way it's out of alphabetical order in the list, just to make you momentarily think they've pulled it....

While this may be possible, in all the years of RSD, I have only seen this happen to one limited release. And that was the REM unplugged from a few years ago.

Anybody else know of any others where this happened? It's important to note the difference between limited RSD releases and RSD releases that just have a debut on RSD but will be widely available afterwards.

Can someone please explain "indie-retail exclusive"? Is there a list of these exclusive retailers out there?
A Record Store Day participating store is defined as a physical retailer whose product line consists of at least 50% music whose company is not publicly owned.

In other words, we're dealing with real, live, physical, indie record stores - not online retailers or large corporations

Extra copies of Johnny Marr - I Feel You were put on sale on his website 2 years ago after they sold out on RSD and sold at inflated prices on eBay IIRC.
 
I'm desperate, but I'm not that desperate. Unheard tracks? If we're scraping the barrel that low what about all the unheard farts that were done in the studio? I want to hear them!

Morrissey's farts were better when he was in the Smiths - FACT. Johnny Marr's influence helped give them a plaintive, musical quality. They were farts you could hum.

Since hanging out with Jesse and Boz and drinking all the time, modern day Morrissey just goes for volume in the trouser trump department. Sure - all the Mozbots lap it up, like it's the best thing they've ever heard, but it's just not the same as the good old days. Some of us remember.

I seem to recall some of Weller's RSD releases being put on itunes shortly after for those that missed out or wanted audio only. Not sure if that will be the case here.

Anyone not already have these versions? G'wan.... satiate the need.
 
Anybody else just hear the demo version of 'The Boy....' on 6 Music?
On Steve Lamacq's programme - it should be available on the BBC iPlayer in about 40 minutes....
