you'd probably remember if it was £30
I think it was maybe around £15
i think you're right. my memory is terrible.
not looking forward to forking out £30 though.
I have a feeling it'll arrive on CD as well later in the year.
TCV 10" vinyl (2010) £11
songs from the laundry room 10" (2015) £11
medium rare 12" (2011) £20
from banquet records. which is generally cheaper than elsewhere. only reference prices i've got
$23.98 is the lowest US price I've seen, which is what you go by (lowest) as the best indicator of RRP as they won't sell under that.
That pretty much matches what I recall MR being, don't think t was under 20.
Cant really blame stores for charging a few extra pounds on a handful of records when they know more than half of them will be flipped for 50 to 200% more. And in Covid times even less when in store business has been pretty much non existent.
Another factor of course is that while 12k is a big number, these will most likely be a split pressing with Germany making one chunk and the US the other - and the US number is normally higher - like maybe 8/4 or 7/5 k at a guess. So there are normally less per store in the EU. Plus oddly its been EU pressings we've gotten down this way on the day for many releases in the last few years, so ANZ poss steal a few.
No matter how many EU are pressed - you will never ever have to resort to this...
German early seller - snapped up for...
EUR 199.00 🤑
But does anything cost the same they did 10 years ago? Milk? A bus ticket? Probably not
It is what it is, like my 7 year old nephew would say
There is inflation and then there is vinyl pricing
I did just pay $AU71 to preorder, which honestly is about what I'd've paid in my original plan to have friends ship from the US.
I didn't think preordering was meant to be a thing for RSD, but its a reputable site so hopefully it doesn't back fire on me...
I think it's standard practice cos of Covid at the moment
Really? I didn't think you could do that?! If you are willing to share to a fellow Melburnian in a PM then that would be awesome.
I need to ring around the local shops, it's a bit of a pain as I have an MRI on Saturday morning so I may need to dispatch Husband to go and queue somewhere!!
We're used to paying heaps for vinyl in Aus..... paid so much more for my orange vinyl than I did for blue when I was in the UK.
It was not difficult. I just googled Dee Gees Foo Fighters Aus and there are two preorder options.
one was slightly cheaper but I paid the premium to go with a site I’ve bought from before.
i got 2 places in mind to go -- one opens 8am, other 10am. If I can't get a copy at the 8am store, then I can go wait early for the 10am store. Good luck to me!!
I'm not going to bother and hope it gets a wider release later on. The idea of crowds scrambling for stuff stresses me out.
I'm going with some friends so if one of them is able to grab an extra copy i'll let you know
Thank you. The store I was going to made it sound like he'd do reserved orders if he got the quantity he was hoping for but apparently that was only for his regular customers. So I'd be in a crowd where potentially people would be throwing elbows
@Geo you picked up your copy yet?
We're in lockdown again. No RSD for Victoria or New South Wales.
My preorder was is an online only store anyway.
About to join the queue here in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex UK. Was told people would be queuing from 3am so here’s me arriving at 4.25am to a queue of 4 people 😬
Ah damn. Well hopefully you'll be out of it again soon.
What time does the store open?
8am. I’ve placed my order and now I’m back home, in bed lol
So you will have to go back or they have given it to you already?
I will go back, probably around lunchtime. They place people’s orders, bag up your items and they’re sitting there behind the counter until you return, any point after 8am, to pay. Simples.
That's fair enough
So is it a separate pressing for US and EU or is it just on 12K pressing for both areas together? Was wondering that is it enough to get it just from EU or do I have to check US as well.
plenty of copies on eBay already 🙄
Yeah seems only about 200 of the limited run aren't currently listed
That's combined - there are two pressings. Nobody ever officially says how many of each one make up the total (ie 12k here) Maybe 7US/5EU - something like that.
I've done a pic of the two back covers.
Absent mindlessly checking the US east coast time to see how long I could set my alarm for before treasure hunting...
Ouch OK OK I think it must be Foo day 🤣🤣
