Record Store Day -- moving to June 20
 
The full list is up: https://s3.amazonaws.com/recordstore...RSD_PUBLIC.pdf

Really want that Alternate Rumours by Fleetwood Mac. I know it'll be a popular title, but the 16000 copies makes it a little more possible.

Live records by The Ramones, The Pretenders, and David Bowie could make this a VERY expensive RSD for me.

I'm so glad I haven't dived back into vinyl. It would be a huge money sink.

Especially when vinyl goes the way of the dodo again. A lot of this stuff will be going for less than half the price people are paying for it now...if anyone still wants it. Or it is warped and scratchy and unplayable.

Fuck vinyl. Hated it as a kid. Hated it as a teen. Hate it as an adult. It is just so bizarre it is popular right now.

I went through a period where I was into vinyl but have mostly stopped collecting it. If I see something interesting and it’s something only on vinyl I’ll pick it up, but otherwise I’m done pretty much done with it.

DEFINITELY...

Black Crowes "Jealous Again" 12"
https://cimg4.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...30aa607ea4.jpg

Like the cover and I love the Crowes, especially their first album. This is a must buy.


Dio "Annica" 12" Picture Disc
https://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...a865b830fd.jpg


I was going to pass on this, but it looks like a nice package with the 18 minute spoken word story and the rare a-side track.

Devildriver "Winter Kills" Colored Vinyl

https://cimg6.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...d1fba0130a.jpg


I'll try to pick this up if I can get a copy. Great old-school style thrash band.

Infectious Grooves "Take You On A Ride" 12"
https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...72358839bd.jpg


Looks like a cool release. With a new song!

Various Artists "Nativity in Black" 2xLP
https://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...64fd5da4fb.jpg

Worth if for the Michael Kaluta cover alone, but this is a classic tribute album with a great line-up of artists. First release on vinyl, and well worth owning on that format.


MAYBE...

Judas Priest "Sad Wings of Destiny" 2xLP
https://cimg8.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...776f2dd13c.jpg

Great album, but I already have it on vinyl. Probably not worth the upgrade.


Judas Priest "British Steel" 40th Anniversary 2xLP on Red, White, and Blue vinyl.
https://cimg3.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...674bae1c57.jpg

Might be cool to have, but, again I don't know if it's worth the expense. Still have my original on vinyl, too.

Def Leppard "Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame EP"
https://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...06e4318a5e.jpg

Looks kind of neat.

David Bowie "ChangesNowBowie"
https://cimg3.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...27ef6673ad.jpg

Maybe. I'll have to think about it. Probably not something I need, but will probably regret not picking up.


My Chemical Romance "Life on the Murder Scene"
https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...4773c7e245.jpg

Only interested in this because it's on clear vinyl with blood splatters. I'm a sucker for these and it goes with the cover art.



I WISH...

Clutch "The Obelisk" Boxed set.
https://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...fdf2d8fc55.jpg

Oh, Christ, this looks nice. Sixteen records, signed lithograph, and turntable mat. Sixteen records, limited to 550 copies. I don't even wanna know what this motherfucker is going to cost...

I’ll definitely pick up Grateful Dead 5/9/77, still trying to decide on Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets and the Jerry Garcia set. Nothing else interests me, which is more than fine since I spent too much at Black Friday RSD. The Allman Bros. release might interest me except it’s pretty much the same songs as the original Filmore album and last year’s Bear’s Sonic release.

A lot of pointless re-issues (nothing new).

Of interest to me might be the Keith Richards and Jesse Dayton 45's. The latest Hillbillies in Hell. Roxy Music Steven Wilson mix and Midland live album.

I might be interested in the Bowie Soul Tour cd.

That's RSD in a nutshell.

But I'm a sucker for live records. The Pretenders' is an interesting one; it's from 1980, when despite the mainstream popularity of Brass in Pocket, they still had a lot more of a punk edge with songs like Precious, The Wait, and Tattooed Love Boys. Assuming all four of those songs will be on there, and if Message of Love is too, then it's a must-own.

The "Alternate" records the Fleetwood Mac has released for RSD are very interesting for fans of the band. It's outtakes, different sessions, or sometimes just rehearsals of the songs. I only have the Alternate version of their self-titled '75 album (though Tusk, Mirage, and Tango in the Night are all on my Discogs want list). Monday Morning is just a run through of the song, without a lot of processing, and only Lindsey, John, and Mick playing.

I'm only into one or two titles ever RSD (last year was none), but this year there's like 6 or 7 that I want, 3 or 4 that I want badly, and couple are UK RSD only, so I'll have to rely on discogs/ebay for those.

Plus many of the “exclusives” end up getting re-issued within 6 months due to demand exceeding supply. Such as the Jerry Garcia Band “Electric on the Eel” release and now the Black Friday release of Claypool’s Flying Frog Brigade (which incidentally, this one should be a must-buy for Pink Floyd fans. The second disc completely covers the Animals album, and does a fucking brilliant job covering it).
I’m still relatively new to collecting vinyl, but more and more RSD seems to be more for people that want a nice colored disc, since the inevitable repressings tend to just be on black vinyl.

I did a quick search on Discogs of some of my RSD-exclusive titles, and very few of them were repressed (granted, I have specific musical tastes, and the RSD discs *I* get are not the most popular titles). I don't think any of the Alternate Fleetwood Mac records have been offered other than RSD, the Cheap Trick Epic Archive records were only RSD. The Smithereens' covering The Who's Tommy was a repress of an earlier CD, but the only vinyl release currently in existence is the 2018 RSD job.

It's a whole bunch of "meh" from me. There are like, two records on that list that I'd happily take if someone got them for me as a birthday present... but none that I'd sit in line for 10 hours to buy.

Maybe saying “many” was misleading, but it’s certainly happened with some of the RSD releases.
But now that I think about it, I might be mixing in releases that are just RSD-firsts with a regular repressing to follow. I think that “Story of the Ghost” by Phish is one of those. The RSD release was on a really nice colored vinyl and each one had 1 of 2 limited edition art prints included. But I’m pretty sure I read that a regular black vinyl release without the print will follow a few months later.

I'm eyeing the Def Leppard RRHOF album.

I love vinyl, but I guess I'm pretty much over Record Store Day at this point. If I was less bothered by crowds and got into the "party" aspect of it, I'm sure I'd enjoy it more, but there hasn't been an exclusive that made me want to deal with all of that in a long time. I'd rather just patronize my local record stores on normal days and buy whatever I find that interests me.

I am glad it serves its intended purpose of bringing patrons to local record stores though. I want them to stay alive!

Ironically one of the people who started Record Store Day killed his own store when he wanted to retire, rather than selling it to someone who would have kept it going, and has now left Sacramento with NO record stores aside from a few small shops that specialize mainly in LPs and not much else.

As I've said before, I go to RSD, but I do NOT wait on line in the morning. I go in the afternoon, see what's left, and buy accordingly. I've been able to get every RSD-exclusive I've wanted.

but.....isn't that a "record store" then?

Agreed. Things like this aside, new releases are twice the price of CDs.

Alan Smithee 03-15-20 11:16 PM

Re: Record Store Day -- moving to June 20
 
I have a lot of audiophile friends and none of them are buying new LPs. I honestly don't know who is. I think the newest LP I have is the Phantom Menace soundtrack, which I got for free working for Tower. Being with CDs since 1985, I get the appeal of LPs but not buying the argument that they sound better- the only ones that do were mastered differently, with the CD given that "loudness war" mix which was a big thing that killed my interest in recent music.

Paff 03-16-20 03:05 PM

Re: Record Store Day -- moving to June 20
 
Whoa. There's an old media format Alan's not a devotee of?

Seriously though, a LOT of people are buying new LPs. We have a ton of stores in my city (I could name 15 right off the bat), and every one of them does great business. Many post photos or videos of their "new arrivals" section but by the time I pay the store a visit they're almost all gone. As for the "audiophile", when I go to the high-end stereo shops (where they have turntables that literally cost more than a year's worth of my California mortgage), they only sell vinyl.

And you're right....LPs that sound better are the ones that are mastered differently; they're mastered either analog, or at a digital sampling rate that is higher than standard CDs can provide.

This is anecdotal of course, but there are a few different niche groups that kept vinyl alive through the CD era:
  • Subset of audiophiles in the "vinyl sounds best" camp
  • Music collectors
  • Indie music fans
I'm in that last category. From the time I was a teenager in the 90s I've been a vinyl fan and a lot of indie rock and related genres have consistently had vinyl releases for as long as I've been alive. For a good period of time, vinyl was the only way to hear some rare indie tracks - especially on 7" releases.

I think with the death of CD and rise of streaming, there's been a minor resurgence in vinyl interest from slightly more casual music fans in the 45-ish and under age group who like owning an album and having the tactile experience in addition to listening to Spotify or whatever. I have several friends in that category who purchased their first turntable in the last 5 years or so.

Alan Smithee 03-16-20 10:36 PM

Re: Record Store Day -- moving to June 20
 
Incidentally I've had to order the new Pet Shop Boys CD because all our regular record stores are gone and it's not mainstream enough for Target. Tried ordering it from Best Buy's site and they have the LP available but not the CD. I'm sure LPs are a much bigger pain to ship!
