Record Store Day 2018


(Ben) #1

It’s nearly upon us… the world famous Record Store Day. Some great releases this year, anyone planning on getting any? I have my eye on a few and will no doubt be down to my local store at stupid o’clock to try and get my filthy hands on them.

I’m going to be in Minneapolis on that day and will hopefully be making a trip to the legendary Electric Fetus.

There’s a re-release happening of Prince’s “1999” album.

The content is interesting - 1999 was originally released as a 2xLP.

Warners at the time felt it would also be a good idea to release a 1xLP version in Europe.
Basically the same album but with 2 or 3 of the songs removed, and different cover artwork.

That version has been out of print since 1983, and they are doing a re-release of it for RSD 2018.

Oh man! The US has different releases to the UK, don’t they? I much prefer the US list :heart_eyes:

Yeah, I believe so!

Last year this beauty came out in the US for RSD - one of my friends bought an extra copy for me and I grabbed it off him when I was in LA a few months back.

Limited edition green vinyl of What Time Is It? by The Time.

Nice!! I think 85-90% of my collection is picture/colour discs. I still can’t get my head around how a groove in a piece of plastic can output sound. Crazy!

Hoping to get a few gems this year, Linkin Park is my top priority though.

What’s the Linkin Park release?


(Ben) #7

One More Light Live in a gold/black finish (I think). The CD is great and to have it on vinyl would be ace.

Unfortunately not. No store in my town participates anymore. Nearest shop I believe is 20-30 miles away.

My nearest store is around 25 miles away. It’s where I went last year and it’s where I’ll be going this year :slight_smile:

Got to my local store at 1am, was fourth in queue and managed to get everything I wanted. Job done! Hopefully next years releases will suit me better than this year, there wasn’t much that tickled my fancy.
