If I was a douche who was intent on making money I should've bought the two I saw along with my copy....jeez. Haha.

I did think about it. But I would've just charged people the same as I bought it for + shipping.

I suppose it's hit and miss. Some people who wanted them didn't get them at their stores and that's a bummer. At my store, the Foos' record went fast but there were tons of copies of the Queen 7" left over, so I guess no Queen fans here.

One guy walked out with 40+ records. They didn't enforce the "one per customer" policy for him and I was pretty pissed. You could tell he's selling them by how he looked and acted.

I saw a guy like this and he had a copy of Medium Rare. Apparently they only had 18 Medium Rares at our store and they all sold within the first hour. I was amazed at the amount of stuff people where buying! I wish I had that sort of money!

Maybe one day I'll stumble across a copy when the hype has died down, since I missed out...I can't afford those Ebay prices!

I asked my sister (who's in Houston) for it.
I forgot to remind her on Saturday, she called today to Cactus Music and the guy told her it sold out but that they already called for restock.

Not that limited. Good.

A restock means nothing. That's the term used to query the supply chain for a redistribution of any remaining stock. It doesn't mean a repress, dont get the two confused. How ever many were pressed is however many were pressed - otherwise its not an RSD release its just a plain old commercial release with an RSD presale. And this wasn't one of the later. I'm guessing now it was a 10K pressing, maybe 12.

See, I wanted that one, and the REM box set, but I was so bummed at not getting a Medium Rare, and our local store had put their stock into the back corner where about 10 people were trying to wedge into a space for 3, I just left. I don't even know if they had it.

I picked up Medium Rare for free yesterday at my local shop because I pre-ordered Wasting Light through them... They must have made an uber mistake. Win.

I don't know if it's a blip or not, but the bottom seems to have fallen out of the market for most RSD merchandise on ebay, like maybe most people got the stuff they really collect and hopefully some flippers will get stuck with their extra merchandise. But that's not true for Foos or Nirvana yet. Those seem to still be going for a little north of $40.

If anyone has, or comes across a spare UK pressing and wants to swap it for a sealed US pressing fire me a PM. I don't mind if it has been opened or even played. so long as it is in tidy order.

Did anyone get one at regular price off of those internet stores that were advertising them? I finally bought one off of ebay because I was tired of thinking about it.
