Anyone know of any sites selling RSD items online (besides eBay and Discogs)?
Bullmoose starting Monday morning at 10am.
Check the main thread: people are listing them there when the find them (e.g. Rough Trade, Zen Cart, Dusty Groove, etc). Amoeba & Bullmoose will not go live til tomoro morning.
I've already purchased from Amoeba and Rough Trade today -- both have a lot of stock left. Also 1234gorecords.com, though I can't get their checkout to work for some reason...
See above. Amoeba started selling already at 8 AM.
Bath House Records is selling today too.
Anyone buy the mono Piper? And if so, how much did you pay?
Thanks! They had the one I wanted - just ordered.
Awesome! They had the one I wanted too!
What did you get?
The Smithereens Play Tommy (green vinyl).
I got the Soul Asylum live show from Amoeba today and the Grateful Dead 1969 Fillmore West 4 LP set from Bath House.
If I'd been swifter, I would have purchased the Neil Young Tonight's The Night show from Bath House, too. They had it in stock. Oh, well. It will be offered for regular sale in a few weeks. I'll buy it then.
Actually, you can get the Neil Young from Amazon in a day or two.
Bullmoose.com at 7AM EDT
Their site got killed at 7et and the sought after stuff went almost immediately
I got four titles I wanted at Bullmoose around 11 am.
Oh yeah they still have a lot but the ones people are scalping on the auction sites like grant green and run the jewels were instantly sold
No one has any Floyd to speak of I was told the stores didn’t get many
Why do have a feeling there will be a regular Floyd mono release down the line? Oh yeah $$$ for the record company and band members.
If any fellow Canadians pass through here and know of domestic shops that are selling their RSD leftovers online, pls share...
I’m almost positive there will be another release , or suddenly shops getting more of this one in stock in a week
You'll recall the REM Unplugged vinyl releases a few years ago, sold out quickly and only had with a high premium on the after market. Today you can find them quite often at a great price from insound.com the discount site.
My local store here in Columbus had 27 copies.
Of course there will. You think it’s an accident that once you peel the slipcase and the poster, it looks just like a normal release? Economies of scale.
It was actually brilliant. How to market and drive demand for a MONO release...
1) Press 35,000 (or whatever) mono LPs with regular covers
2) Print just 15,000 (or whatever) “special” slipcases and posters for RSD (to drive interest but clearly not enough to meet demand created by that interest)
3) Don’t announce the intention to release the regular edition at a later date
4) Folks who otherwise wouldn’t have bothered with a mono pressing of Piper descend upon record stores all over the world.
5) RSD edition quickly sells out - due to a combo of cool factor and normal demand.
6) Many buyers left in the cold desperately wanting the disc and hoping there is, at least, a normal release.
7) Announce the normal release...no slipcase, but at least those left in the cold can now get a copy of this treasure...woo hoo!
8) Folks who normally wouldn’t have bothered or would have waited, now quickly scoop up the mono LP for fear they’ll miss out again.
9) Sell 2 or 3x as many as they would have ordinarily.
The store I went to had one copy. #1 in line got it.
You’re comparing the REM Unplugged release to the Piper mono?
There wasn’t a single one available on ebay or discogs or Amazon US yesterday from a North American seller. Amazon.ca had a few at $60+ incl s&h. If right after RSD is when the return is highest, why aren’t we seeing them for sale - even at ridiculous prices? Because there is simply very little supply in N.America. Sure, a regular release will bring down demand for the RSD version, but it won’t help supply.
You won’t find the RSD edition of Piper mono - in the US - for a “great price” anytime soon. And probably never.
