Re: Record Store Day 2023

Picked up Eric Dolphy: Musical Prophet - The Expanded 1963 New York Studio Sessions and The Cure: Show (picture disc) at one of our local record stores today. Did anyone else arrive a couple of hours early to get a good spot in line? Glad I did ...

Re: Record Store Day 2023

I paid scalper prices for the Van Halen set. Hoping the Soul Asylum album will drop a little before I pick that one up. Thereís a couple others that Iíd like to have but theyíre not RSD exclusives so Iíll just wait for a release if I canít pick them up once stores post their remaining inventory tomorrow.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

My youngest brother picked up the Our Lady Peace, Jason Isbell /Amanda Shires along with another Amanda Shires releases. He had the Scott Weiland release but put it back once he found Jason Isbell. He said he was around 50th in line this morning. I believe they had the Van Halen set at the store he went to as he texted me the price while he was looking around.

I believe a bunch of the people in front of him where there for the Taylor Swift and Grateful Dead releases.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

Yeah, I was fourth in line and two of the people ahead of me (and quite a few of the others behind us) were there for Taylor Swift. The guy right behind me was a KISS fan who was there for the Eric Carr release, only to find out that the store wasn't carrying it. Felt bad for him. I got the only copy they had of The Cure so I was happy about that. Picked up a vintage copy of Eric Dolphy: Copenhagen Concert in addition to Musical Prophet so it was a pretty good morning for me.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

I would have been interested in the Pearl Jam release and maybe the Taylor Swift release for my fiancťe.

Locally thereís a place that sells a pretty good selection of records but theyíre not just a record store so they donít participate in Record Store Day as far as getting the exclusives.

Pretty sure Pearl Jam has released some of their exclusives later on anyways so maybe Iíll wait it out. If not whatever I guess.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

Did my usual, showed up a few hours after doors open (and still waited almost an hour to get into the store, what's up with that?), and got the ones from the top of my list: The Selecter*, Ramones, and Rich Kids. Didn't find The Donnas, Gen X, or Violent Femmes, but I'm not too upset about that. Might check some stores tomorrow for remnants, 'cuz sometimes they'll surprise you.

* - Yes, I know I originally showed disinterest in the live Selecter record, but this concert was recorded after their second and final record Celebrate the Bullet. A record which has grown on me recently. Most of the songs of this concert come from that record, so I was more interested than when it was first announced.

That sounds right. I just didnít expect the secondary markup to be as much as it was. I donít mind paying others to go out and wait in line so I donít have to, but $60 for four songs is nuts. Going to try for a few more albums this morning as stores release their remaining inventory online.

As this had a SRP of like $100, I'm almost afraid to ask.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

$135 plus tax and shipping came out to around $150.

No luck online this morning. Got my cart filled with all but one title I wanted at Bullmoose but by the time I went to checkout everything was out of stock. By the time I tried other websites, they were out of everything too.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

I started to check out the record store by brother went to yesterday while I was out. But I was afraid of actually finding something I might want so I skipped it.

Plus the store he went to has 4 of the recently released Type O Negative albums and my daughter would have drove me nuts to buy at least one of them.

By the way, the store I'm talking about is called Main St Records in Burlington John if you're ever in the area. Never been there myself as I don't usually buy a lot of vinyl, although I have picked up quite a few from Target clearance or B2G1 sales over the last couple of years.

The Ramones is one I may end up getting. I wanted to see the reviews before buying but what I've read thus far has been quite positive.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

I think I ended up getting all but one title that was on my initial list. I might be getting an extra Soul Asylum since I didnít have much faith in the inventory levels of the first purchase. There was a Reddit thread yesterday where people would post links to stores with inventory of certain titles. After going through a bunch of shops all over the country, I finally found the titles I wanted.

Kip Moore is the one I havenít been able to locate. I wasnít expecting a lot of demand for that, but itís such low supply that I havenít found it anywhereÖ.itís not even on eBay right now.

And after reading other purchases and looking a little more deeply at the titles, Ive added the Pearl Jam and Poe titles to my want list, but obviously nowhere to be found at this point.

I also got this...




And I'm glad I did - besides being a great record of obscure versions of classic songs, turns out it's one of the hardest to find RSD releases this time out.

I may have told this story before, but in my tween years my best friend's mom took us to the mall one time, the three of us were in the record store, and she had heard of a new release of Elvis rarities and asked what section it would be in. I started mockingly suggesting the "flogging a dead horse" section. Well, I do owe her an apology, because with all original Ramones taking a dirt nap, I'll chomp on any drop of previously unreleased material like a large-mouth bass.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

Not a whole lot, a couple of discs I want, and a couple that are marginal.

Definitely in for:

Judgment Night Soundtrack (red vinyl)

Nice collection of hip-hop and metal collaborations. Definitely upgrade from my CD.

Skid Row - B-Side Ourselves EP (yellow/black marble vinyl)


Don't have this on any format, and it will go nicely with the original "Side Row" S/T LP and RSD "Slave to the Grind" LP.

Death - Individual Thought Patterns (2023 Remaster)(White inside of ice black with splatter vinyl)


Need to know a bit more about this. This is a classic album and I already own it own vinyl, and I'm curious about the remaster. Also not sure what "White Inside of Black Ice with Splatter vinyl" is, but it sounds cool.

Also looks there's Motley Crue 12" single that I wouldn't mind owning if someone gave it to me as a gift, but the cover isn't anything special and it's all album tracks. "From Enslavement to Obliteration" from Napalm Death; like ND, but that's not my favorite album of theirs. And some kind of Matt Cameron project that I might pick up, but I need to know more about it.

I would like to get that Eric Carr CD but with only 1000 being printed, I doubt I will have a chance.

Nothing once again. Scrapping the bottom of the barrel with most of this crap. Live stuff is a crap shoot.

Yeah, I'll probably be skipping this one. Although I've had the MOV edition of the Judgment Night in my Amazon cart for (literally) years, watching for a lower price.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

The Black Friday list is underwhelming, but there are still a few things I want:

The Hold Steady 7"
Rilo Kiley - Under the Blacklight
Meat Puppets - Forbidden Places
My Morning Jacket - Happy Holiday
Jazz Dispensary at the Movies (honestly, the JD compilations alone will get me to every RSD)
Judgment Night

Re: Record Store Day 2023

I have one OOP album that was selling for a nice price that's being reissued for RSD, so I'm already down $150 without even walking into a store.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

How'd everyone do?

I couldn't find the live record by The Knack at any store, one I went to looked it up and said the distributor still had it listed, which means it probably didn't ship yet. She even said they were still getting deliveries of RSD exclusives today.

I got my most-wanted English Beat record, and since I got shut out on The Knack I decided to go with the live Sparks record. Finally, in the used bin I found Foxboro Hot Tubs. Then at another store I didn't get any RSD stuff but there's the new(?) self-titled Fishbone record, which has the same cover as their 1986 debut but with new songs and the faces of the (then) band members duct-taped over. It's odd, but I couldn't pass it up.
