Ditto on the badge if any loves manages to scoop a few up, my little collection would love that addition

I love the idea of record store day, the reality isn't necessarily as good. Once the Foo's has sold out half of them will probably be straight on ebay for 5-10 times the RRP
I can't stay out overnight either, although there's a part of me that wishes I could.

Looking at vinyl sales figures, you can't deny that it's probably been a real benefit to the industry, but I'd like to see more bands do year round vinyl-only releases, go back to making 7" singles again, that kind of thing. I used to love buying those.

I wish 7" were still a thing, I miss buying them. Buying a single on itunes is not the same!

The problem is still the same as it has been the last few years though, big labels don't want to press 10,000+ copies of a 7" any more for a big band and risk having only say 6,000 of them sell. The flippers don't buy too many because they know there are enough to go around those who really do want them, but there aren't enough who do want them.

It's catch 22 really. You release one in big numbers and the label risks having several thousand being unsold and losing money, you release them in relatively small numbers and it attracts the flippers and scalpers, taking them away from those who do actually want them.

The only solution I can see without the labels risking a loss is to sell them direct, on their own website, on a pre-order basis. Take orders for a month or whatever, press that many +x, for any stragglers who missed it. That way you only press as many as you can sell, those who want one, get one and for the flippers it's useless, except for those few that miss the initial order and miss out on the extras. But that's surely much better than the other options.

Actually I like that idea. Gives everyone a chance to get one and doesn't leave huge amounts unsold.

Interesting. We tried tracking down a recording of that show a few years ago when we found out the details on those photos but didn't get very far, now we know why. If Dave himself can't find it, we wouldn't have much chance! We did find their sound guy from then who probably taped it but obviously Dave would have spoken to him as well, so I guess he didn't have it.

Still, at least the set list is sort of confirmed now in that article.

How amazing would that vinyl be though. Such a special release if it had happened.

it was a tongue in cheek comment, I was more surprised that they were selling it for less than I expected and what everywhere else will be selling it for. might casually wander into town at 7.30 in the morning as there's no access to one of the shops until 8 as its in a shopping centre

Is there nowhere I could buy this online? I can't make it in person any more and starting to think I may miss out.

I have already seen a post of three people lined up outside the shop I plan to head over to in the morning. I may rethink my 7 AM time...
