I'm not worried about it. I locked in the lowest price on Amazon for it, which is about $29, with tax and free PRIME shipping. Elusive disc charges almost $5 for media mail and I'm not sure if they charge sales tax. I'll wait it out.

Death Waltz did participate, but with 7", not LPs. However, that Halloween II LP is so impressive that I just ordered their Halloween III release from a seller on ebay.

I may go check out Record Surplus today, as they're running a weekend sale to celebrate RSD.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Eh, Record Surplus was basically a bust. They've gone downhill since the last time I went.

I did grab these since I was already there:

Donner Summer: Bad Girls
Warren Zevon: Self-Titled
X: Under The Big Black Sun
Sparks: Indiscreet

Can't wait for their release of the Fog. So far I have:

Halloween 2
Halloween 3
Prince of Darkness
Escape From New York
They Live

Without even realizing it, I don't have any of their non-Carpenter releases.
I'm hoping I can get in on their next subscription. My fear is the eBayers will start targeting Death Waltz like they do Mondo.

As for RSD, if anyone has a copy of Mad Season, Porno For Pyros, or The Cure and is interested in Elephant shoot me a PM and we can hopefully work out a trade. I'd also be willing to do cash for any of them. Worst case scenario, I'll wait till the eBay frenzy dies down and the prices come down to planet earth.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Death Waltz sends their stuff to stores at least, does Mondo even do that? There were multiple new copies of They Live at Amoeba.

Other than They Live, most of their releases readily available on sites such as Elusive Disc are on Black vinyl. The ones they sell on their site are the colored variants.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Managed to get the glow in the dark Poltergeist set...yeah the audio is kind of terrible on it. A lot of background noise...glad I have the black vinyl release of it.

I wonder why the terrible sound? None of my other colored vinyl sound different at all...

Mondo gets more and more distribution with each release it seems. Drive should be the biggest yet.

Halloween II was the colored variant.

Well, wait, I don't know. The one I have is black with a pink pulsating ring. I'm seeing a photo on their site of one that's half black, half yellow.

The one I have is mostly black with an orange color towards the outside of the LP. Haven't heard of the pink version.

My bad, it is orange. I misremembered. I think that the one with the ring looks cooler than the half colored one.

Mondo will be releasing the Oblivion score on vinyl this week. Probably on Thursday. They have a habit of releasing shit on Thursdays.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Was the music for that anything special? I imagine it would just be pretty generic stuff.

Porno for Pyros avail at Looney Tunes with their leftover stock... (it looks like it's only the Blue UK RSD inventory left, not the US RSD tie-dye color)

Not sure if they use realtime inventory or not but they are a reputable place.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

you know RSD sounds like an awesome idea. Lets help out the little guy who owns an independent record by getting people into their store but price the little guy customer out of everything. Who thought this up Mitt Romney?

1000 for the Drive Soundtrack is too few when you consider that that means 10 copies for 100 stores across the US when I can think of at least 10 RSD stores in the SF Bay Area alone.

Sure I went to go check out the RSD store for records but I usually go to a nearby one on the weekend anyways. Only difference was that I didn't stand in line for hours to be the one of the first 10 people who could secure any title they'd want.
You either want an exclusive release bad enough or you don't. Personally, I'd never wait in line for any record, period. I stumble into a few stores at 10 am and what's there is there.

Plus, the soundtrack in question IS a picture disc, right? The very definition of a collectable.

I haven't listened to it, but M83 did the score and they're electronic trance artists, so we'll see. The friends that did see the film say the score rocked.

They have the Nick Drake album ... for $10 more than it should be.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

In retrospect I think maybe I should have bought the At The Drive In album for $40 that they wanted, so I could sell it for over the $100 that its now going for on the secondary market. I'm just pissed that the liquid filled Blunderbuss vinyl was going for $325 (retailer priced it). Fuck, I understand the mega sets going for almost that much, but for a regular vinyl?

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Got to my local shop at 630am and was 5th in line. Picked Up:

White Stripes
The Cure
Dazed and Confused
Wings single
The Gaslight Anthem SE CD (although i swore it was supposed to be a DVD as well)
The Black Keys
Garbage
Secret Band - Secret Song (I havent even opened it once i heard it was The Dead)
Machester Orchestra/Grouplove/Frightened Rabbit
Biffy Clyro

Pretty sure I am forgetting some.

I put down No Alternative, Biggie and Mad Season since I had to stay on a budget. The only other I would have bought was the Frightened Rabbit full length but they got none in.

That's presuming that the store even puts out the exclusives. Amoeba had a line around the block and were filling orders one at a time (seriously). None of the exclusives were being put out until the line finished (I don't know at what point they stopped new people from joining the line), which was around 2 PM. I was there at 10:30 AM to trade stuff in and didn't feel like waiting around till some indeterminate point in the afternoon for the remaining exclusives to get put out, and then get crushed by the crowd as they surged for it as one.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I went to one of my local record stores for RSD. I got there about 45 minutes to an hour after opening. They still had a lot of stuff, but almost none of what I wanted. I ended picking up the Pink Floyd 'See Emily Run' single, the Garbage record and the Tegan & Sara 'Closer' Remixes.
I really wanted the Coheed & Cambria Demos.

After I walked across the street to the other record store I never go to, to see if they happened to have anything else. I walked in, saw a RSD display that had a copy of Opeth's Blackwater Park on it marked $45. I immediately turned around and walked out.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I participated in my first record store day this year, but I only showed up near the end of the day to catch some of the bands playing and to hang out and talk music with people. I did pick up the new album from The Features, which doesn't officially come out until May 14. I believe this was exclusive to Grimey's here in Nashville.
