    I knew this was coming but I didn't realise it had been. I just tried to find this picture disc on discogs, assuming you'd now be able to get it for £1.25 but I discover it's from this year's RSD which was yesterday. I'd seen this thread, as well. Tomorrow I'm going into town to buy a walking stick and some hearing aids.

          I’ve been going to RSD since the very first one. It’s a bit of fun but i think serious collectors quite rightly view it with a heft dose of cynicism. I‘ve never been one to camp out overnight or queue for hours in the freezing weather. No record is worth that malarkey!

          This year I had to work on the day so had to settle forgoing down to my local store today. They still had loads of stuff left so I managed to get most of the records i wanted.

          Funniest thing was listening to the owner take a phone call from some guy begging him to put the last copy of a record to one side for him. No matter how many different ways the owner managed to find to say “you got to buy it from the store, first come first served” the caller just wouldn’t give up. You could tell the owner was pi$$ed off with him and i was tempted to just buy the damned thing so he could tell him there and then that it had just sold!

            I am somewhere in the middle re RSD. I don't hate it but I can't help but notice that some releases are obsolete.

            I went to just one of the record stores in Athens that carried RSD releases and bought the Alice Clark album on We Want Sounds for 29 Euro. Of course the cheapest copy at discogs at the moment costs twice what I paid for. One person is even asking for 150 Euro. You might as well save for an original.

            Anyway, I also wanted to buy Abu Ali (again in We Want Sounds) but it was already sold out by the time I got to the store (round 13.00 iirw - I'm not the type of person who would queue for records...).

            I noticed some other interesting reissues, eg. Power of Zeus, Twink "Think Pink" (in horrid pink vinyl) and Grodeck Whipperjenny but I'm pretty sure these will still be available at reasonable prices for a while..

              I wasn't able to get out on the day and didn't see that much on the list that really grabbed me anyway, but I have since bought the Redskins 10", This Is The Kit's 'Krulle Bol' album and the NJE/Sherwood 'Afloat In Dub' album - that one from Terry Edwards himself on Discogs

                Now, we all know people who get up, or who don't go to bed, just to pick up some RSD booty and flip on eBay for £££

                But can a RSD affiliated store ethically flip their own stock on Discogs for silly money ?

                Take this one . . .

                https://www.discogs.com/sell/item/937944567

                A £39.99 record being sold by a RSD shop for £169.99

                Seems off to me ?

                Maybe its downbeat with depressing themes and technically imperfect vocals but it is an excellent example of a downbeat mix with depressing themes and technically imperfect vocals

                  Me too, although it's beyond me why anyone would want to buy that. It was ludicrous at £40- you could have on CD for under a fiver and that would be a far better way to listen to it.

                    My blue vinyl "Krulle Bol" is a really nice quiet pressing - as I listen on headphones mostly these days I appreciate that!
