    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.

    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...............

    Do these things tend to get discounted after the event if there are any left over?
    Disk Union in Japan discounts the RSD stock that doesn't sell quickly, but looking at your username, the travelling expenses might make it rather more expensive than 60 quid.

    I bet most of use wanted the Gil Melle Andromeda Strain re-issue but not at 90 quid ...

    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.

    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!

    Makes sense - you have their two big hits in one place which is an important saving for the busy modern executive.
    Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

    Also, there's a map, so you'd pay extra for that anyway.

    Picked up the 'Test Card Grooves' for £16 - A teenage girl in front of me in the queue, perhaps 14/15, bought the shop's last copy of 'Barbie Girl'. There you go, that's who was buying them.

    I'm going back to a local store for a couple of titles that hadn't arrived.

    On the Sunday, I saw the Fleur De Lys box @ £70. The chap offered to sell for £50 as he'd done well on the day and just wanted rid.

    Going to have to think about that one.

    Interesting. I was nowhere near any shops on Saturday so i popped into one as i was passing today - they did have the FDL box but wanted £80 for it. It's still in the shop.

    I was tempted by the French Psych comp but it was a daft price for a single LP, I think it was £25.

    I meant to say there were lots of copies of the Pinky Floyd 12" thing if anyone is looking for one.

    Also a snip was the nuggets - come to the sunshine LP at £40!!

    Only the second time I went to an event - first I was stranded in NYC with the ash cloud so made for a nice diversion to the day... second I happened to be in Edinburgh...

    I bought the Yabby You / Augustus Pablo / Smith & The Prophets / King Tubby "Songs Of Love & Unity" - 54 copies in red...

    Had a passing interest in the Morricone 'Bluebeard' - At £44 it got passed.

    Was absolutely delighted to wander in to Tower Records last night and see 6 copies still in the racks. They'll probably be there next year.

    Sadly no Patti Smith Hey Joe for me (13 copies on ebay of course) ... I'll do my best to cling on to life despite such calamities ...
