Re: Record Store Day 2023

Not really much this time. I normally go fir every doors release, but im not the 3 inch gimmick.

Macho Man and Elvis are probably the ones i try to get as of now.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

I'd go for a couple live albums, such as the one from Midlake, if I bought vinyl. You can sort the list by format and there are something like only 4 CDs.

Unfortunately, it's from the Right Here Right Now tour. I saw them on that tour, and it was the first and only time I saw Van Halen live. By that time the band was well past their prime, and it showed in a wholly unremarkable, lifeless performance. (From what I understand, quite a bit of this album was re-recorded in the studio.)

It's a crying shame that Van Halen didn't release a double live album from the "1984" tour. Could have a classic like Maiden's "Live After Death," Judas Priest's "Priest...Live," Ozzy's "Tribute," and the Scorpions' "World Wide Live."

Re: Record Store Day 2023

I had a boss that used to play Crispin Gloversí albums loudly and regularly at work. If I can get it for $20 or so will probably pick it up for sentimentality.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

Couple of records I want, but nothing worth getting up early and/or waiting on line for. It'll definitely be a case of seeing what's left after the morning rush.

I wouldn't mind the reissue of Enslaved's debut EP and the Sisters of Mercy Reptile House EP, that's about it for me.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

Even the records that interest me don't really do a lot. Like, there's a live Selecter album. Great, I love The Selecter. Except, we just got a live RSD release from them 2 years ago. This is not a band like the Rolling Stones, where their sound changed from decade to decade. For F's sake they only released 2 studio albums in their entire career. I can't imagine this live album will be any different from the other.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

Stuff of interest...

AGNOSTIC FRONT - "UNITED BLOOD (THE EXTENDED SESSIONS)" (LP)

Early NYHC. Definitely of interest to me.

BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB - "LIVE AT LEVIATHAN" (LP)

Decent enough 21st century hard rawk outfit. Low priority for me, but worth a look.

ERIC CARR - "ROCKOLOGY" (2x LP)

Looks like a good fit for my modest KISS collection of vinyl.

DIO - "LIVE IN FRESNO '83" (2x LP)

Old Dio concert. Of interest, but I'll need to give it a listen before I buy.

THE DONNAS - "EARLY SINGLES 1995-1999" (LP)

Always liked The Donnas more than I probably should, but their cover of "Wig Wam Bam" here makes it worth a purchase.

FRATERNITY - "SECOND CHANCE" (2x LP)

Limited to 800 copies, this will probably be impossible to find, but pre-AC/DC Bon Scott would be a worthwhile addition to my collection.

GENERATION X - "GENERATION X" (LP)

Billy Idol's punk days before he was Billy Idol. Strong maybe here.

MOTLEY CRUE - "HELTER SKELTER" (Picture Disc)

Only into picture discs as collectibles. Low priority, but might interesting to own.

SHADOWS FALL - "WAR WITHIN" (LP)

Enjoyable enough 21st century metal album. Might upgrade my CD, but it's another low priority offering.

THE SWORD - "GODS OF THE EARTH" (LP)

I've been picking The Sword's RSD releases, so I'll grab this one, too.

UFO - "WILL THE LAST MAN STANDING (TURN OUT THE LIGHT)" (2x LP)

Not my favorite band by any stretch, but they are historically important. Only have two UFO albums ("Phenomena" and "Lights Out"), so I might pick this up.

Some interesting things this time around, but lots of double albums. What I pick up will depend a lot of how much these things are. I'm going to balk if lots of these things are in the $50 range.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

^ I don't like The Donnas very much, but yeah, any record with a version of Wig Wam Bam goes on the short list.

RSD related, I just ordered The Alternate Tusk by Fleetwood Mac off of Discogs, thus completing my collection. I'd hoped that the recent box set release of these records would ease the prices on the individual records, and apparently it has; Tusk had been going for $85 and above, started dropping into the $70s, and I'd said I was holding out till it got below $50. This copy was $44, and considering it was $39 if you bought it when it came out, that's not an insane markup.

Heh.

If this is what I think it is, I had this picture disc back in the day. It was suppose to have some original "Leathur" mixes of "Live Wire" and "Piece Of Your Action", but at the time I didn't notice anything different.

It turns out the first copy of "Too Fast For Love" I had, might have had the original "Leathur" mix. Allegedly it was released in canada with the leathur mix. So I might very well have been listening to the "Leathur mix" all along, and didn't recognize any difference at first.


Years later when I first picked up the "Too Fast For Love" cd, I thought it sounded "odd" and different such as "Merry Go Round". The original Leathur mix of "Merry Go Round" had the non-distorted guitar intro up front in the mix, while the later "official mix" had the non-distorted guitar intro buried in the mix.



- Leathur mix of "Merry Go Round"





- official mix of "Merry Go Round"

Re: Record Store Day 2023

The Leathur mix of Live Wire is quite different as well. If the original masters are "lost", I really wish they'd find them and reissue the Leathur mix of the album (the one included in the box set from awhile back was just a needle drop).

The Canada Elektra LP has an interesting backstory. The Crue were embarking on their first Canadian tour and Elektra wanted to get an album out prior to this and the only mix available was the Leathur one. The album was quickly slapped together and I doubt many were pressed (pretty sure it was also released on cassette) and subsequent reissues used the official remix.

I have an original Leathur press and always preferred it to the Elektra remix.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

I'd love to get a copy of that first Canadian pressing. Looks like it came out a month or two before Elektra's first US version, and even includes "Stick to Your Guns", according to Discogs.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

That Eric Carr KISS release is pretty cool. Wonder what the unreleased bonus Demo tracks are?

I am so glad I despise vinyl, or I would be one broke motherfucker.

The Donnas cover has an alternate, and kind of NSFW, set of lyrics.

As opposed to just merely racist AF, like the original?

...and that song wasn't even the most, as the kids say these days, problematic thing they did.



As far as "Wig Wam Bam" goes, One, it was the early 1970s and everyone was high as fuck. Different time. Two, the song was sort of mash-up of Longfellow's Song of Hiawatha and "Running Bear," an old pop song from the 1950s that they were probably familiar with when they were kids.

Re: Record Store Day 2023

Only one title I want...




Surprised it's getting a US release, as this band's RSD releases are usually UK-only.
