according to the RSD website people are already queueing...
I think the unpleasant thing about this is puts you in such close proximity to other people's greed.

it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.
"Record Store Day comes around once a year. If you want to have a record out on Record Store Day you've got a year to plan it.
"Major labels are just very good at getting their planning right.*
"It's up to everyone else to get their planning right as well. Everyone knows when Record Store Day is."
*Major labels are very good at monopolising the pressing plants with re-issues of Aqua or equally shite re-presses that are not really needed in the world.

Excellent, Been waiting to post this.
Elephant and dwarf they call them, Pepe Kalle and his little
stage dancing friend Emoro.
Had a nice ride on my bicycle and made a little tour visiting some record shops in Breda.
Found the five 12"'s I hoped to buy, so that's all good.
It wasn't too busy, but I must say I made sure to leave before the instore concerts.
I cycled into the city and picked up both singles I was after: the Pin Group reissues on Superior Viaduct.
Both were early Flying Nun releases (circa 1981-82) and originals are impossible to find.
I suppose there was little danger of them selling out before I got to them but even so I was delighted to get them,
so RSD was a pretty postitive experience after all. The planned reissue of the Go To Town 12" has been postponed.
Ha\d a positive experience in terms of getting everything I hoped to get.Also had a very nice celebratory frothy coffee and an almond croissant as I sat and watched the crowd at Sister Ray inching along. Couldn't help wondering why at least some of those people didn't wander around the corner to SOTU, which was pretty well stocked and had hardly any queue by then. I guess some people just enjoy each others company. Nowt as queer as folk...............
Everyone tear down your own little wall
That keeps you from being a part of it all
Because you've got to be one with the one and all
You've just got to be close to it all

I wasn't going to buy any RSD, but in the afternoon I dropped by a small shop that mostly does Americana retro clothes (jeans/trucker caps/checked shirts) but also has a few records, mainly rockabilly/hardcore/garage rock. I couldn't resist the Bowie - No Plan clear vinyl at £15 as there was no queue or hassle involved.
"This is Modpowerpopsouljunkierock´n´roll so stop post shit like Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Grace Jones , Led Zeppelin and some other boring blues stuff, that kind of music don´t belong in this group, if I´ll ever see shit like that posted in this group again that person will be banned from this group forever!!!!"
I notice all the newspapers this year seem to have ran stories about grippers and flippers on their websites. Maybe they do it every year it just seemed to be more prevalent, how you stop such things I don't know. £180 for a 'Little Mix' album on pink vinyl, crivvens!
