Its the live stuff I liked. Some live tracks I've never heard at the quality they're at. And a cool little CD cover which was somewhat professionally done AND it was five fucking dollars.

I got to Rough Trade east in London early, queued for 2 fucking hours and by the time I finally got in they'd sold EVERYTHING that was good. So I missed out on my Medium Rare! I was so upset I could have cried.

I held it together, but man I was pissed. The shop was totally ransacked of all the good stuff. I saw one man walking around with a copy of Medium Rare so I stalked him in hope he'd put it down, but he didn't!

Disappointing day for me. It wasn't just Foos I was after...it was Radiohead, Gorillaz and Nirvana, but oh well....

I turned up at 12pm today in Edinburgh, queued 20 mins and got it. No luck with Nirvana, but I also got the Telephantasm 7" by Soundgarden and Clash CD single at a different store.

Thought I might have got the Nirvana EP but didn't expect to get the Foo Fighters or Clash. Didn't even know about the Soundgarden 7" until I saw it staring me in the face at the counter.

You can still get Medium Rare on CD if you subscribe to Q for a year. Its feckin cheaper than that Medium Rare Vinyl was at 23.99, and you get 12 magazines!

I was told by one of the staff that only had 8 copies of the Nirvana EP in Rought Trade and 18 of Medium Rare. I had no chance really with the amount of people that turned up!

But I'm definately thinking of the Q deal now. Although I really love my vinyl...I'll have to settle for the CD!

From e-mailing the guy at my local record store, he said he would have 10-12 copies. I got there 5 minutes after they opened (probably 30 or so people in the store so far) and was able to grab the last one off the shelf. Since I wasn't sure if I would be able to get one today, I bought one on ebay a couple days ago for a pretty good price. I might be looking to sell my extra copy once it comes in. If anyone is interested send me a PM. I will NOT inflate the price for profit. Will sell it for what it cost me plus cost to ship it. Want to offer it here before putting it on ebay since I know a lot of people on here could not get one.

I got a copy for myself and one for a friend. When I got to the store around 10:30am they still had about 6-8 left. By the time I left around 12:30pm they were all gone. The lady next to me in line was bummed because she was looking for one.

I also checked the stores out, they only had two and had been sold. Like most other places fuckers by them up and put them up on eBay. Oh well, eBay is our best bet now. Im in no rush to add to my Large Foo collection, heck ive taken a break the last 3 years.

I just picked mine up, didn't see if it was the last one. Another customer handed it to me. They kept the store open like 10 minutes later so I could get it. I was told I'm limited to one per day (which is about right), so I'm gonna call up there tomorrow to see if they have another.

I really want the CD version as well.

I didn't get a chance to check any stores until later in the day but I was surprised out of three stores only one got Medium Rare in. They only got one copy and it sold as soon as they opened their doors. I was kind of pissed at the third store I went to when I asked about their RSD releases and they said most of them are going up on eBay. Kind of defeats the purpose of RSD doesn't it?

BTW www.soundstagedirect.com still has some Medium Rare vinyls for non eBay prices. If you order one use the code RSD11 for 11% off!

As much as I love record store day it is getting really shitty due to all the flippers who have discovered it. I searched record store day on eBay in the States and got 1778 results. Ridiculous

I don't see how it's that helpful to the independent record stores to have over 300 limited editions released all in one day. They have traffic that day, but what about the rest of the year? If the goal is to get repeat customers to the store, they should have it once a month and release 10 or 20 titles each time.
