That used to be my spot when I was a competitive shopperô many years ago. I don't know what it's been like since 2014 or so, but if you showed up an hour early you could usually get what you wanted, but there are a few comic book guy types that line up the night before.

I'd love to go early to a shop to see what it's like, but I fear the diehards who start lining up at an ungodly hour are flippers.  Kind of sad.

There are only two on the list that I'd really like to get.  Another one or two that would be nice, but aren't must-haves. Not worth the hassle this year.

IMHO, this year is kind of weak.

There is nothing I am dying for this year.... but as more vinyl is being released there are less RSD exclusives to get crazy about...

The Luna penthouse RSD release from last year is killer but I found it a few weeks ago at mobius...discounted...why more are not into great bands like Luna and feelies remains a mystery

CD Cellar is good? I have worked down the street for 4 years and never been. I guess I should plan a lunch there.

Woke up at 3:30am and debated trekking out to get in line. Since I'm not chasing the Floyd or Bowie titles I decided to go later today or tomorrow.

Anybody in line this morning?

No one bought a damn thing. RSD is dead.

Nah. Went out around 3pm and got everything I wanted (meaning, not much). Store was still doing good business so at least from my limited view it was a success.

From the perspective of the record stores I think it works quite well!

In years past, these RSD threads were chock fulla posts of acquisitions. It may be only once a year but fatigue has set in.

I'm sure that the store is especially grateful to not have a bunch of questionable (and unreturnable) crap left over. Stores have probably caught onto the scam by now.

Now I'm wondering what the stores didn't take the bait on. What titles were so dodgy that the labels are eating them themselves?
