jon - were you at Permanent too? - I was about 25 people deep in the line and I was a bit bummed to see the white stripes singles sittin' on the counter and gone by the time I got there. Luckily, I'm in there every weekend and Lance and Dave, etc. know what I like and were able to guide me to some good stuff not on my list (the Scientists 45, the numero group pressed at bodie lp) and graciously explain that they didn't get a lot in - they're supposed to get more in a shipment today - may make a second trip as I want the GBV tribute and a few other things ...

Not really looking forward to the swarm of hoarders. Hope I can pick up at least one cool thing.

i wonder what percentage of this stuff goes unopened forever.

+ and goes up on ebay the second they are brought home.

i understand that the ltd edition thing is a real motivator for lazy music nerds to go out shopping, but really don't get why the labels don't press at least enough for those interested to be able to buy them ON RECORD STORE DAY

Lmfao there's a hueg line outside of academy of ppl waiting to get in. Most of them have bags from other record stores

Local shop said Beady Eye was a rapid seller. 7" boxed set or something?

People are walking by this line like smh

herb albert OTM. There are so many ultra-limited things for RSD, and a very big chance that the customers that actually shop at these stores regularly through the rest of the year will never ever lay eyes on them, let alone hands or cash. Is it really THAT hard to press a few more of these things so that people that actually DO support the industry don't get the shaft?

Sean Carruthers, Saturday, 16 April 2011 16:09 (3 years ago) Permalink

missing this completely this year, no RSD in Peru! Oh well, I already have the 4 Men With Beards reish of Big Star's 3rd and I love it.

loving those comments that scott posted, are those from the official RSD organization?

cameroncam was probably one of the dudes in the folding chairs at Permanent.

That Dummy piece was pretty measured I think. Seen a lot of dumb things written re record store day from both ends of it. I don't think most people who get excited about record store day and like buying records are thinking, "Why can't all those assholes who like mp3s get into this?" It's not "This is the way it should be," it's "I think this is fun." Physical objects are never coming back in any real mass-market way, and that's fine. But some people will continue to enjoy them-- so let 'em.

Mark, Saturday, 16 April 2011 16:14 (3 years ago) Permalink

Re: limited runs, they sort of have to be limited runs, don't they? I mean, almost nothing unique to RSD is unavailable, per se. I can buy Big Star's Third, or Beady Eye, or whatever. It's just a matter of the special packaging, which more or less demands limited runs. 7" boxed sets, that Beach Boys 78 ... I can't imagine most of these more or less vanity pressings can be done on a much larger scale without costing too much. But maybe I'm wrong.

I couldn't make it to glasgow today so no Hormoaning vinyl oh well. I did snag a mastodon live vinyl though

jon - were you at Permanent too?

No, I thought about going down to Permanent, but I stuck closer to home and went to Second Hand Tunes in Evanston.

i got the big star thing

that and the television live thing were the big items at my store...really lucky to have gotten big star.

people are weird, was sad to see ppl passing up like sweet rough guide world music and mississippi john hurt records for fuckin' foo fighters rarities and shit. oh well.

i'm gonna go to another store this afternoon after the mania dies down, my friend said they had like a dozen arthur russell left when he was in and had to leave because the UPS truck had arrived with the P.O.S./William Elliott Whitmore split and ppl went bonkers and shit.

does anyone know if that Country Joe & the Fish record is cool? it's supposed to be "underrated" "weird" etc....that'll totally still be there for a while

managed to snag the last wild flag 7" on the rack, huzzah! this year's opening was MUCH crazier than last year -- a giant-ass line compared to last year's loose assembly of maybe fifteen people.

if anyone has a spare hormoaning vinyl i'd be really grateful

Josh where'd u find big star? reckless on broadway and dave's didn't get any in /:

diamonddave85, Saturday, 16 April 2011 17:46 (3 years ago) Permalink

dave (bless his heart) didn't realize that the fucked up album everyone was asking for was actually the David's Town comp sitting right there on the shelf. of course I didn't let him know til I secured my copy

diamonddave85, Saturday, 16 April 2011 17:49 (3 years ago) Permalink

Old School Records in Forest Park. They had five. I bought one, the owner bought one, which leaves ... who knows by now!

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 16 April 2011 18:46 (3 years ago) Permalink

(It may have helped that I gave them the heads up about this weeks ago, and they were sure to get in on the ordering early!)

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 16 April 2011 18:46 (3 years ago) Permalink

alright so my initial lack of interest has picked up a bit--
the black twig pickers/glenn jones split is really great.
steve gunn/ilyas ahmed 7" is good
intl submarine band LP & single

and i may end up getting the numero comp, or the vanguard comp, but probably not. ppl should get that vanguard comp though, it's got good stuff on it, especially the serpent power.

No Big Star at my local store :(

Got the Liturgy / Oval split, wife got Damien Jurado and Akron Family jams. Almost bought that Skip James thing but bought a buncha dollar CDs instead - Acetone, David Dondero, Three Mile Pilot, Lloyd Cole, Oakley Hall.

Got the Prurient 7" and the Arthur Russell reissue. Went to three stores in wburg looking for the Lady Gaga. One of them literally laughed at me.

Bought the John Fahey from the store I work at, couldn't help it.

Wacky Way Lounge (Evan), Saturday, 16 April 2011 19:33 (3 years ago) Permalink

Whiney come to Hoboken if you want the Lady Gaga. L train to 14th and 6th, switch to Path! (Not a serious suggestion, but we've got it.)

Some dude showed up early for a John Mayall 7" and pronounced "Mayall" wrong when he asked for it.

Oh, Monseur le Fapp, you are really oiling us... (Whiney G. Weingarten), Saturday, 16 April 2011 19:35 (3 years ago) Permalink

how is that possible?

nerve_pylon, Saturday, 16 April 2011 19:52 (3 years ago) Permalink

think i woulda picked up the fahey if i'd seen it.
i got the big star. anyone who's fretting because they didn't, don't worry, you don't need a version of third that's sequenced so that thank you friends segues into holocaust.

fun, anyway. nice seeing people bopping around with copies of world of echo and stuff.

also woulda bought: the lower dens seven.

ha yeah, i keep looking at the test pressing tracklisting and thinking, "no, that's WRONG." even though it might be technically right.

I went CD shopping this morning, forgetting it was Record Store Day. Jackpot Records, in Portland, had a line going around the whole inside of the store. There were so many people there it made it literally impossible to browse. So I ended up leaving without buying anything. Everyday Music, which opens an hour before Jackpot, didn't have nearly as many people so I shopped there. Didn't even check the RSD specials to see what they had left over.

musicfanatic, Saturday, 16 April 2011 20:36 (3 years ago) Permalink

crazy!
think i'm going to a record store later after the baby wakes up. there will probably be nothing left. though i can't imagine this particular store having a line of people waiting to be let in!

tylerw, Saturday, 16 April 2011 20:36 (3 years ago) Permalink

I went to the four big stores in Seattle. I couldn't believe all the people buying the Fleet Foxes/Foo Fighters, etc. Got a couple things that I really wanted, but just missed out on those two White Stripes 7".

Got the Ty Segall T. Rex covers album, Nirvana's Hormoaning, Arthur Russell, the Sacred Bones comp, Fela Kuti and Buck Owens 7" and was lucky enough to grab the only copy of the Purling Hiss/Puffy Areolas split.

Easy Street was a madhouse. I walked in, saw the lines and walked right out. Sonic Boom had a great selection and the crowds weren't too crazy.

Was in Tower Records in Dublin. Got to see Steve Mason and Lykke Li for free. Which was nice.

Once again it was an amazing day for us. We had about 250 of the UK special releases for sale and had 11 bands playing over the course of the day and everything went fantastically well. I've just got home now, quite happily squiffy and tired. Keep buying records everyone, please.

Just did a late run and got arther russell and television live @ the old waldorf. Had gotten big star earlier so got everything I wanted

have you heard the television set before? it is off the hook amazing.

tylerw, Saturday, 16 April 2011 21:07 (3 years ago) Permalink

No I haven't but I figured jeez television in 78 were they ever not amazing? Also it's rhino handmade so pressing, packaging, etc, is all to top notch

the zing cheese incident (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Saturday, 16 April 2011 21:16 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah, it's a couple days before (or after, i forget) that portland show. crazy that they broke up like a month later.
