One copy in a store does seem ridiculous. I was tempted to get on the train to my nearest store 40 minutes away but didn't bother because it's still pretty small. Glad I didn't.

As usual we have to hope for a cheap ebay, a cheap store leftover or a re-issue on CD later, like Medium Rare.

That would be great a cd reissue.Not limited to 1500 copies though.

I think there is a chance. They have had exclusive vinyl tracks in the past as B-Sides on 7" but I find it hard to believe they'll keep four whole 'new' tracks Vinyl exclusive, and on a limited release to boot.

was after biffy clyro (puzzles) but that had gone as well. whilst in the queue i knew of the availability as they were putting it on twitter when it had all gone. if i'd gone straight there would still have missed out i think. bit annoying but ah well.

suspect the biffy vinyl will have a general release some point soon so not too fussed.

I would have bought Biffy too but it was sold out before I got in. I was thinking of getting White Stripes but didn't bother in the end, it was still available when it was my turn.

This shop where we went to only allowed 5 customers in the shop so we had to wait until one came out before someone could go in. There was this one guy who was just wondering round the shop, browsing and looking at things, really slowly. Everyone was shouting at him to get the bloody hell out of there

'Kids In America', recorded in 1991. This makes it the earliest recording officially released under the Foo Fighters name.

This band started in 1991.

Yeah still curious they put it under the FF name when it's obviously all solo.

Well, I guess we can say the one man band version started in 1989.

shop i went to was small, so a 1 in 1 out was happening, thankfully noone really did that too badly. they only had rsd stock out cause its basically a room and thats the shop. about the size of an average living room if that. was looking at the "NOW that's what I call music 1" but really wasn't worth it.

also was silly the amount of different reissues that were released.

now to hope that there's somehow some released next week online

Nope nothing at all you can do. My store said they had ordered but it was one they ended up with no confirmation on and it seemed unlikely they were going to get any. In the end my problem was solved - I had to work so it was not do that and queue or work and go to eBay, so I went to work. At least Monday won't be a disaster.

For those in the UK and US with copies - we still don't have any matrix numbers or any statements from the records about "Made in ..." I'd be keen to see those as I'm picking there are two variants once again.

28 copies sold on eBay UK as at 1pm - average price is just on 45 pounds. Should drop a bit over the next few days, and the odd one has been listed for less. Lowest has been 27 but only two under 30.

Way more in the US of course and they are just now opening doors - so .com will be the place to check if you are not in either country.

Expect on this to find what you are looking for this next week, my guess is after that the prices will be on the way up and will go that way forever.

Missed out. Had to travel to get to store but Foos was gone. It was easy to ger the likes of Bowie and Garbage. Tried second store but that was also too late.

I queued for nearly two hours this morning and its frustrating. I wish this scalpers paradise called RSD would be scrapped for something where genuine fans don't get screwed over.

One record store is selling it for 150 euros. Lovely.

Jackpot for me, I feel extremely lucky. Sorry to all of you that tried and were not able to grab one.

My luck ... i decided not to go w/ a bigger store as those lines are nightmares, no Vintage Vinyl for me. Instead I went to a store closer and smaller, 5am, no line, so I decided to chance a WaWa coffee. When I got back, 1 person in line and he was there for Phish. Store had 1 copy and I got it. I heard both #4 and #5 in line ask for it, so I felt bad for those dudes, they waited 'almost' as long as me.

Won't be able to play it 'til tonight, can't wait though.

I also scored a Citizen Dick single and Steve Earle single.
