Might wait til next week for the UK shops to go online.
Pricey enough without the chance of a import fee or something.
Yeah not worth the risk tbh.
Think I’ll wait it for it all to crop up in the sales in a few weeks time.
Went through the list again earlier apart from Lisbon if I didn’t have it, Viktor Vaughn and maybe Modern Lovers II. There is absolutely nothing I can justify. My Original Pirate Materials vinyl came yesterday morning. Didn’t have to queue for that.

Just had my third e-mail of the day about leftover RSD stock. Think they might be fucked
@bornin69x you’re in luck - it’s in stock and only €63
I mean, the one in Help the Aged is only £3.50 but this one is marbled
Hello peeps. Wondering if you can help a clueless person out.
Prince is putting out the gold experience on vinyl on 18th June which appears to be part of Rsd. I might be able to get to resident in Brighton to pick it up that day. It says ‘limited to 2500 copies’ on rough trade - would that indicate I’m going to need to queue at stupid o’clock for it? If so is it ‘put your finger in the air ‘ for when I’d need to queue? Or is there some sensible advice to follow here. Are things bunged out online later if they don’t sell out?
Fucking hell I just want to buy an album
Thanks in advance for any tips
If you’re in Brighton on 18th June, go to Cult Hero, not Resident. Queues at Resident will literally be around the block. Even mid afternoon you’d still be queuing up for 20/30 minutes, but I’ve always found Cult Hero’s stock to be pretty good
You sir are a good man
Worth noting for a big release like Prince, the 2,500 figure is probably regional rather than worldwide, I’d expect more copies to be out in the wild.
I think its just stuff that wasnt manufactured in time for earlier in the year thats coming out that day (about 100 releases according to my local) so i’d hope the queues wouldnt be too brutal.
Might be worth contacting the shops in advance to ask if they are going to get that particular release in. They’re not supposed to put it aside for you but you want to at least know that they will have a copy before you start queuing up. Not all shops get all of the releases (I think).
Yes planning on calling them. Don’t really wanna contribute to the mayhem if I’m honest but this is for a gift so I figure it’s cool
Thanks @xilia @rob.orch @mark_h and @bornin69x i look forward to updating you at 3am on 18th
I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on something for me.
I was in town today and thought I’d pop into Rough Trade to see the 2nd drop of this year’s RSD releases, maybe get the Paul McCartney thing seeing as it’s his birthday. But it was £38 for one track + a remix which are both already available on other releases. It seemed pretty steep even taking into account current vinyl prices/the rough trade premium so I checked Banquet Record’s website and it was £18 there. So does anyone know why Rough Trade would be charging more than double the price?
I’m definitely firmly in the anti-RSD camp but very happy to get the Sun’s Signature ep (an actual new record!) and the Gold Experience reissue from Bear Tree in Sheffield. Still not sure why either of them need to be ‘limited editions’ though.
everything’s a limited edition when you think about it
