I got Moon and Antarctica, but no EVOL, which is what I had hoped to find....
half a bummer, but still cool.

Man, some of the vinyl on sale was so expensive.

Got the M0untain G04ts DVD. The last copy I saw there. Awesome.

Totally want that Soft Machine thing, but not really into anything that is being released in the US, that since that isn't, well, crap. Kinda crossing my fingers for the store having some discount Nilsson available...

Reactionary Records is where I'm going, in East Atlanta. I've never been but my friends band is playing there (Facehugger) and I want to check it out. Atlanta has a good deal of local record stores; since Tower closed down, it's actually been more difficult to find a chain music shop. Closest you can get is Best Buy.

Got the Devo reissues and the new single - looked for the Goats DVD but no luck - all sold out instantly. Dammit.

Alice Cooper Life & Crimes box set, deluxe version of Atlantic Crossing and 2-CD Stylistics best-of, all for 40 bucks...not a bad haul, but not quite as good as last year, when I got the 8-CD Black Sabbath box for about 25 bucks...

Sooo I went to the place near me that came up on the RSD page which I had previously thought was a local version of a "Hard-Rock Cafe" type eatery (Bus St0p C4fe in P1tm4n NJ), BUT it turns out that they have a lot of vinyls there! At a %15 RSD Discount no less! I got:

Axe - Nemesis
Grim Reaper - Fear No Evil
Alice Cooper - Killer
The Lemon Pipers - Jungle Marmalade
Fania All-Stars - Rhythm Machine

fer like $35!

just went to another Newbury Comics. used CDs and DVDs were all 30% off. lots of people. some guy had an armful of stuff. didn't seem like there was a lot of Record Store Day-only stuff left though

maybe i was looking in the wrong place, but i doubt it

Skipping Record Store Day altogether, but I can be found in record stores at least 2-3x a week anyway -- I'm not the type that needs to be dragged there for ltd. ed. vinyl or anything. I'd rather not weather the crowds, it seems like shopping on Black Friday for music.

I did order the Devo CD reissue from Amazon for $10.99 -- think it's 3,000 copies or so?

Would pick up the Mtn Goats DVD if I had the will to go shopping. Will check Monday, and assuming it's all out of stock (likely) then I'll just pick up a used copy sometime in the coming years, when I happen to find it.

i skipped record store day too! i had to watch the kids all day so that maria could work (and also watch the store). someone sent me a record in the mail though. which is always nice.

I went to Phonica in London around 3pm. The Ltd edition stuff had mostly sold, not that I was keen for it. Then, I went to JB's on Hanway St. but couldn't decide so left empty handed. Apparently the dreadful Rough Trade East was busy.

mmmm, Saturday, 17 April 2010 23:20 (4 years ago) Permalink

Skipped it as always. I go once a week and don't really care for hordes of nerds.

EZ Snappin, Saturday, 17 April 2010 23:28 (4 years ago) Permalink

skipped it by default because my car's radiator hose broke

purchased these on cassette (last year I bought a car that happened to have a tape deck & I have since been an amassing a substantial collection of second-hand tapes)

i got one.

ian, Sunday, 18 April 2010 00:18 (4 years ago) Permalink

My local shop said that lots of stuff won't show up there until May (like the Beatles 7"). I snagged the DBT's 7".

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 18 April 2010 00:18 (4 years ago) Permalink

I did not, I thought there was new stuff on it but it is the same as the 2LP/CD that already came out.

I went to like 4 places in Seattle (Wall Of Sound, Sonic Boom, Easy Street, Everyday Music). Got the Bitchin Bajas/Moon Duo split, the Fall 7", and a buncha other non-RSD things. Nowhere I went was mobbed but all the places were busy with lines at the registers.

bug holocaust (sleeve), Sunday, 18 April 2010 00:21 (4 years ago) Permalink

I went to Hospital and bought the new Carlos Giffoni, Wolf Eyes and Burning Star Cores CDs and got a mountain of used shit at the zine fair for like $20.

Kind of funny that I only got CDs but oh well

ian, i want your eyewitness account of record store day in brooklyn. this is what nerds do when they go buck whylin'.

yeah, i got calling out of context.

also got the devo duty now reissue.

altered dominant (get bent), Sunday, 18 April 2010 01:34 (4 years ago) Permalink

so i went, hit may fave shops -- didn't make, like "AN EFFORT" of this idea -- just figgered I'd hit the same shops I always hit every week or so. Check in with them and see how things were going.

Have to say, this particular "event" seemed WAY more over-subscribed than last year. Could barely even get in to the Reckless Records in the Loop in Chicago. It was completely wall-to-wall (and it's obviously just a small little hole-in-the-wall to begin with)

but I basically got every "exclusive" release I wanted, save for a couple: couldn't find the Moby Grape 7" anywhere, couldn't find the Rolling Stones 7" anywhere. :(

and every place I went said that they never even got any copies of the 'super secret' Beastie Boys 12", whatever the hell it was

Stormy Davis, Sunday, 18 April 2010 03:00 (4 years ago) Permalink

this is crazy that I can't buy a friggin Moby Grape 7". aren't these kids supposed to be after TV on The Radio albums or something

Stormy Davis, Sunday, 18 April 2010 03:03 (4 years ago) Permalink

Oh, my store had that one in stock. I ultimately put it down.

Stormy Davis, Sunday, 18 April 2010 03:05 (4 years ago) Permalink

Moby Grape. I was very tempted.

We had the Grape, but we sold 'em quick :(

heard a rumor they're making things easier for next year's Record Store Day -- all you're gonna have to do is launch iTunes

P4k has the documentary "I Need That Record!" up -- http://pitchfork.com/tv/#/episode/2144-i-need-that-record/1

it's "One Week Only" though -- no idea when they first posted it, either

ksh, Sunday, 18 April 2010 16:45 (4 years ago) Permalink

Another documentary that may be worth a look is Alan Zweig's Vinyl: http://www.veoh.com/browse/videos/category/lifestyle_lifestyle/watch/v16951205N9H8Wagc

The funny thing is that I'm watching it today, and found that one of the guys interviewed in Vinyl is one of the guys I ran into at Record Store Day just yesterday. Know a few of the other characters in the movie too from my days wandering around the various stores in Toronto.

Sean Carruthers, Sunday, 18 April 2010 16:50 (4 years ago) Permalink

One of the record stores I stopped by said RSD was an enormous pain in the ass where you have to order all the "special" vinyl months in advance and then get don't get two-thirds of what you actually ordered

yeah at my fave local all the clerks were drinking

"i'm doing everything i can to make time elastic so that by the time i get out of here i will hardly remember the day"

yeah having customers for once is rough stuff.

scott seward, Sunday, 18 April 2010 18:31 (4 years ago) Permalink

It wasn't the store in NYC called "Good Records" or something right? They were drinking whiskey and listening to blues but they were having fun.

Evan, Sunday, 18 April 2010 18:33 (4 years ago) Permalink

haha nah man they were happy to have the customers, it was just wall to wall all day and from a customer service standpoint i kinda get it

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Sunday, 18 April 2010 18:37 (4 years ago) Permalink

so, *does* anybody know what ended up on the Beastie Boys thing? was it just lame new stuff?

Stormy Davis, Sunday, 18 April 2010 18:53 (4 years ago) Permalink

I didn't get into record store day because I was at the footy but I know I would have not got anything I was wanting anyway and would be a £4 train fare down.
Stupid idea to limit everything so much, no-one gets what they want and everything ends up on eBay, seriously, fuck this shit. I'll do my record shopping in my own time.

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Sunday, 18 April 2010 18:57 (4 years ago) Permalink

(im just pissed off as I knew there was no chance of getting that Soundgarden 7" or the Flaming Lips lp nevermind the Blur single)

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Sunday, 18 April 2010 19:00 (4 years ago) Permalink

The Blur single is fetching between £100 and £200 on ebay.

Mark G, Sunday, 18 April 2010 19:27 (4 years ago) Permalink

Beastie Boys should have repressed the "Rock Hard" EP as a limited 10".

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 18 April 2010 19:29 (4 years ago) Permalink

tbh Mark, I woulda been happy just to get the Soundgarden 7". But I knew i wouldn't even get that. It was silly to have things so limited. Whats the point of getting in people, who regularly shop there anyway, to come in for a ltd ed record , not get it, so go home pissed off rather than buying something they can get anytime in it's place? They should make enough for all, not the scum who buy just to eBay it.

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Sunday, 18 April 2010 19:55 (4 years ago) Permalink

Our store had so much fun yesterday and I am suffering a hang over. We didn't get half the exclusives we ordered, but we generally just act like it is a party day. Great bands. Too many hotdogs. So much beer. Cops came but left us alone. Another successful year!

We have two extra Moby Grapes at the store right now, btw. Who wants 'em?
