perhaps a few others...
I'd love to get a Kink's Arthur and a Tangerine Dream Electronic Meditation but it looks like those are UK only... The UK list this year kicks the US list in the arse IMO.
Do you have a link to the UK list?
Devo live LP
Lee Hazlewood Light in the Attic comp
Here is the UK list: http://www.recordstoreday.co.uk/exclusive-product.aspx
I'll say. Can we trade lists? lol
After being ripped off by my local retailer on the morning of last years Record Store Day I'll only be getting the Blondie 'Panic Of Girls' CD/DVD set. If I could be certain he'd sell them at the prices they are meant to be sold for I'd also be tempted to get the Bowie, T.Rex and Abba releases.
Is there any price guide this year?
I would trip you or your granny to get to these first:
Bonnie 'Prince' Billy -- Hummingbird 10"
Gene Clark -- One in a Hundred
Dillard & Clark -- Lyin' Down the Middle b/w Why Not Your Baby?
The Knack -- Live in Los Angeles
Misfits -- Walk Among Us
Buck Owens coloring book (!)
Civil Wars -- Billie Jean and Live at Amoeba
Skip James -- Devil Got My Woman
Mississippi John Hurt -- Last Sessions
Townes Van Zandt -- At My Window
Genesis - Spot the Pigeon AF 12" (got that one on pre-order )
will also be keeping an eye open for the Abba and Squackett releases...
Nothing this year. I just can't see myself spending a morning in line for the meager offerings listed this year (for the US, at least). I may go after the fact to see if anything remotely interesting is left over. Plus, I'm going camping with my family that weekend.
WOW! A 7 FOOT picture disc? Hope you have something to play that on!
I need that Cowboy Junkies Nomad Series Vinyl Boxset from the UK......Can someone hook me up? I am in the states though.
Take that up with RSD as that is copied and pasted right from the list. It would be pretty cool if it were though.
Nothing I can't do without but I'll pick up The Kinks albums and the BBC Radiophonic stuff if I see it, plus some of the reggae things.
I'll pass on the overpriced singles though - you guys in the US have it good, we pay £7/£8 over here for RSD 7"s.
Dunno. I'll see what my store gets. There isn't anything I feel I really must have. I may or may not pick up a few things though. The Gene Clark 7" singles from Sundazed look nice.
Ryan Adams - Heartbreak A Stranger b/w Black Sheets Of Rain 7"
The Grateful Dead - Dark Star: Europe '72 Olympia Theatre - Paris, France 5/4/72
The Tallest Man on Earth - King of Spain 12"
The White Stripes - Hand Springs/Red Death at 6:14 7"
And every Sundazed release I can get my hands on.
I'd like The Small Faces 7" but I believe they are US only?
They need to change the name of this to "Vinyl Day." Totally ridiculous. This was meant to celebrate RECORD STORES, not VINYL, and not just collectors. This was just meant to get people out to record stores on one day to have some fun, and it's turned into this ridiculous vinyl collector's obsessive/ebay-reseller's dream day. Remember, the name "record" means "recording," not vinyl alone. It's about music, it's about the stores and the people who work in them, not a single format. Look at that list and tell me most of that is not aimed directly at the collectors looking to score prize titles -and it's the same people who were in there just a few days prior, rather than the general public. Just a couple years back we were still getting new, interesting music. Now it's just a bunch of reissues. Boring. 2012: the year Record Store Day died. I thought last year's selection was bad. Wow. You "underdid" yourself, RSD folks.
My ritual every year is: As soon as the list appears I check every release and see if it is something I may like, many times I discover great artists this way that I otherwise would not have exposure to. Then I compile my list
This is the process I am in currently.....here is what is on my list sofar, subject to additions and deletions:
Bonnie Prince Billy - Hummingbird 10"
Black Prairie - Singers Vol1: Portland 7"
Gary Clark Jr - Presents HWUL Raw Cuts Vol1 12"
Miles Davis - Forever Miles 12"
Karen Elson - Milk & Honey 7"
Freakwater - Feels Like the Third Time LP
New Multitudes - 10"
The Grateful Dead - Dark Star - LP
Laura Marling - Flicker and Fail 7"
Lee Scratch Perry - Blackboard Jungle Dub 10" boxset
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - One Love To Another 7"
Sigur Ros - Hvarf-Heim 2xLP
Uncle Tupelo - 7" Boxset
Adrian Younge VS Adrian Quesada - LP
Quantic & Alice Russell - Direct to Disc 7"
The Smoke Fairies - The Three of Us 2 x 7"
Jonathan Wilson - Pity Trials and Tomorrows Child 12"
Grateful Dead Dark Star
Scaggs and Rice lp
Skip James and John Hurt too
Link doesn't work for me. I'm going to try to get the DEVO Live album and the new Esperanza Spalding.
Very little this year. The vast majority of the releases are on vinyl and I haven't used a turntable in almost 20 years. It is a shame that a lot these releases are not offered in both vinyl and CD formats as there are a lot I'd be interested in.
not sure anything is a huge draw but a few might grab my attention when I'm in the store....or maybe I'll buy the DOORS 7" box from the last RSD....keep wishing the price might drop
I'm all over that Bam/MC5 "Kick Out the Jams" 7". I've got the Bambaataa version from the '86 album Beware, the Funk Is Everywhere, but I'll pick up the 7" for the cool factor alone. The Horrible Crowes and Pussy Galore would be next on my list, and maybe Springsteen and Paul Revere & The Raiders.
