long distance lee perry fistbump!

don't really care about a lot of the limited edition hoo hah, but have to admit that the dark star LP is a rad idea. they should just do a series of 25 of the best Dark Stars all on LP. it would sell!

"Lee Perry's Blackboard Jungle Dub issued for the first time ever in a 10" vinyl pressing. "

how is this a thing? i could probably press it up on MiniDisc and it would be "Lee Perry's Blackboard Jungle Dub issued for the first time ever in a MiniDisc pressing."

i don't get all this stuff at all.

Hit up End of an Ear and Waterloo Records here... got the School of Seven Bells and M83 45s, and the Captured Tracks Wake tribute 45, which isn't really an RSD exclusive. Would have liked the Beach House 45, but it was long gone by after lunch when we showed up. Some other stuff was still available but I saw the prices and was like go fuck yourself. $45 for 4x7" box set? A 7" single for $14? Single LP releases for $24? Come on.

got up early this morning, like around 7, got up to seattle by 8:30 or so. after i got there, i decided i just didn't want to deal with crowds, lol, so i spent the morning walking around and drinking coffee instead. nice day. finally made it to the record store at 11 or so, by which time there was still a decent (smallish) crowd and basically no super-snazzy swag left. some guy playing folky indie rock in the back when i got there, switched out for a synthpop dj after 20 minutes or so. pretty cool vibe, really.

i bought a cleaners from venus lp (never heard them before, they're great!), and a few used records, only spent about 30 bucks.

Got into Cactus before the mid-day temp shutdown for the Evanescence (!?!?) meet'n'greet. Got the Buck Owens book, which was an ouchie $24.95, and the lady in front of me let me see her copy of the "Dark Star" album ($19.95 here).

I've missed the last few RSDs, and thus was sort of shocked how uncomfortable mere shopping was. This was already early afternoon and there were still people everywhere. There was a line running through the store, so you had to keep excuseing yourself to people just look in the racks. Eventually I just gave up and joined them. Made me miss the first couple years before it became a "thing" and the hang-out atmosphere was encouraged (all-day dj sets and instores, less "me-first" exclusives).

According to the Rough Trade East guys, the Flaming Lips, Bowie, and Kate Bush stuff sold out right away. I really wanted the Flaming Lips album, but I didn't get there at 8am, so I was SOL. The Cure reissues were £24.99, which seems a little steep - a lot of the classic reissue 7"s (Dead Boys, Flamin' Groovies, stuff like that) were £7, which is nuts, too.

Here is a neat article partially about the guy whose pressing plant did the RSD Flaming Lips release.

I picked up the Unrest 7" box, walked toward the register and turned around and put it back. It was $53. Too much mulah for that one. I got the White Stripes 7", Lee Hazlewood, Mclusky, Flaming Lips 2lp, and that was it. Didn't really want anything else. I wish I could have seen that School of Seven Bells, but no luck.

does anyone know if there are plans to sell that flaming lips thing digitally later on or anything? or are we just going to have to wait until it inevitably gets uploaded?

Btw, I'm not sure how limited that boxset is, the one I had was numbered 24xx or so.

i did end up swinging by my local earlier this evening, decided i could at spend some money on other stuff now that the crowds died down. dude working said the Feistodon, Flaming Lips, and White Stripes stuff were the first to go, all within minutes.

Yo Sleeve, thank you so much! I will be in touch. That comp you are referring to (it's on Three Lobed) -- I bought a copy myself at DustyGroove, and they still had like 5 copies. I am going to very strongly guess that they'll still have it tomorrow -- when they will be 'allowed' to sell it online via RSD 'rules'. I am way too lazy to get back over and get u one now, but lemme see if I can snag it online in the morning -- will swap it w/ u for the Dead thing

Currently @ empty bottle after the Numero group record fair -- wow, so many cheap records! Cave is soundchecking and they sound amazing. New song I've never heard which sounds very pink floyd. Chicagoans who are going are in for a treat, but I am exhausted and will prolly head home. Btw all taps have been invaded by Lagunitas, and they have the double IPA 'Waldo' on tap. It is delicious

Lagunitas rules

will swap it w/ u for the Dead thing

this would be SOOO awesome, happy ILXors all the way around.

PooBah's had filed all the RSD stuff in the regular vinyl bins, so I couldn't check out all they had easily. Did notice some of the 45s (Byrds, Gene Clark, and a few others on Sundazed and Columbia). Also saw the Lee Hazlewood LP, but no Flaming Lips. Was going to be a hero and get the LPs requested here, but couldn't remember which had been mentioned (the Lee Perry). Good thing, because I was not alone in heroicness, I guess. Not crowded, no lines, and I did get a few used CDs and a couple free LPs (they have 4 or 5 free LP bins outside the door. No ribs, damnit, but they said a couple performers would be there at 6.

i saw this. i was tempted, since there are only 250 copies, supposedly. but the idea of a LP spread across a bunch of 45s makes... no sense to me.

Psychic Teens (all the way from Philly!) at Permanent Records Chicago was pretty sweet tonight - Really dug 'em, and their rekkid is great! Didn't get any exclusives really, save a couple Sundazed singles & the Trouble in Mind label split. Line for midnight opening at Permanent last night was a hundred deep @ 11:30 - screw that noise! Guess I'm not the diehard I thought I was! I'm moving to a new pad soon, so less rekkids to move is probably a good thing...wish I had the energy for Cave tonight, but I'm sure I'll see 'em soon again... I hope RSD2012 was a success for all that participated - recognition of the 'record store as cultural center' is always good.

BlackIronPrison, Sunday, 22 April 2012 02:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah, not withstanding my internet whining about limited release pricing, the vibe was pretty good at the shops today. tons of people, food and drinks (didn't see any live stuff but I'm sure it was going on)... the cashiers looked a little harried, but then christmas at the bookstore was like that too, and we kind of dug it, as exhausting as it was.

I was a sucker and preordered it. It's beautifully put together, and Mark hand wrote a little note inside for me! This is how the original came, as a 7" box. Each record is a different color, and there is a nice booklet inside. I don't regret it!

Came away with:

Skip James - Devil Got My Woman
Mississippi John Hurt - Last Sessions
Cleaners From Venus Box
Medicine Box (had preordered)
Unrest - Perfect Teeth Box (had Preordered)
Freakwater - Feels Like The Third Time

I don't think it's as limited as you think. There's no way that there are only 250 of them. The one I saw was numbered in the mid 2000s.

van smack, Sunday, 22 April 2012 04:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

funny that the reissue of the perfect teeth box costs more (on average) than copies of the original

yuppie bullshit chocolate blogbait (contenderizer), Sunday, 22 April 2012 04:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

the original edition was numbered up to 2000, so it's possible this second pressing started the numbering at 2001... I'd guess they made between 500 and 1000 this time around.

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Sunday, 22 April 2012 04:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

ah wait, according to the teenbeat website, the second pressing started numbering at 2101.

"that is not smart."

Yeah, but it does thwart the collector scum, a bit at least.

nickn, Sunday, 22 April 2012 07:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

My local store also stocked RSD stuff in the regular racks, but put a bright orange sticker on the top so items could be easily identified. It did make things a lot more orderly than in previous years.

i love the large auns pictures! (Phil D.), Sunday, 22 April 2012 11:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

When it was originally released, I know I picked up a copy of the first 6ths album, which was a boxed set of 7" singles - or rather, 6 6/6" singles, as they billed it, iirc. With a couple of bonus tracks. Re: Unrest, I have a copy of the first Air Miami LP as a 45rpm double LP with lock grooves after each track.

Frankly, I wish Record Store Day offered more cool stuff and less limited for the sake of stuff. I don't give a poop if something is appearing on vinyl for the first time - or reappearing for the first time in ages. I want unreleased stuff, period, not just this collector-bait repackaging. Last year the treasure hunt aspect attracted me to the Big Star set. This year, nothing brought me out of the house.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 22 April 2012 13:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

My local had a small bunch of RSD stuff. Picked up Destroyer's Rubies because i dig that album, didn't even know it was a part of this.

smash williams, Sunday, 22 April 2012 14:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah was that out of print or not already on vinyl?

Evan, Sunday, 22 April 2012 14:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

Missions accomplished! I got what I wanted, did not wait in line, saw 4 great bands (one more o_O than great but that counts as great in my estimation).
