believe it or not I'm eyeing off - Rockabye Baby! Lullabye Renditions of The Beastie Boys

Rockabye Baby gets lots of air play with our new 4 month old lad

I by far prefer his father Tim Buckley. Greetings from L.A. is a great album. Maybe I need to spin it sometime soon. 

i listened to some of the jeff buckley, not usually my preference but its strong and intimate for just a dude and 6 strings.  4 disks is a bit too much for me 

Sorry man, but Jeff's Grace kills it...   {fight fight fight}

Record Store Day is great for in store performances, if in Melbourne, all these are worth visiting, not hard to get to them by tram.

No doubt they'll be bands at:

Basement Discs

Greville Records

Off The Hip Records

Northside Records

Rathdowne Records

extensive shop listings see

I'll probably head into brisbane cbd to visit Rocking Horse, but i get the feeling it could be crazy busy in there so the couple in the valley are options on the way home

Probably a better list of albums this RSD than for the last few years at least.  Of course this is debatable depending on taste.  however...  The complete lists came out after the last post in this thread!

 

Rowland S Howard - autoluminescant (though i don't really care too much for 7"'s)

Arcade Fire - First EP, first time on vinyl

L7 - Fast & Frightening

Tumbleweed - Self Titled

Various Artists - Hillbillies In Hell: Volume 666 (Country Music's Tormented Testament: 1952- 1974) and The Beginning Of The End: The Existential Psychodrama In Country Music (1956-1974)

Lou Reed and Kristofferson...

Jeff Buckley Live....

The National - Boxer (live in brussels)

Ben Kweller - Sha Sha

B52's - Rock n' Rockets, live 1998

 

I'll be happy to get a couple of these.  more specifically the first 4 i listed.

Oh. ..... Tumbleweed.   Is that the guys from Wollongong? That must be AU only if it is  ?

 

RSD  has come here for the first time  as our only seller now has a proper shop.  It's become a definite occasion with all sorts going on. There won't be a lot of RSD  releases cos he doesn't want to be stuck with a lot of obscure expensive stuff. 

 

I'll pick up Cymande - Promised Heights. 

Was interested in the Pink Floyd mono but it won't be here and costs too much.  Keen for it to get a standard release.

Yah Australian release.  Also Jebediah - Slightly Oddway.  

 

There usually are a few regional specific releases.

 

Also a few of the lesser popular record stores around Brisbane aren't taking part in special RSD releases from any majors as they want them to buy more than just one or two.  So yeah.  Only the big indies shops with high turnover seem to have the fun with a barrage of special releases.

My contribution to RSD.  Don't think it was an official RSD thingy , tho haven't seen this version before , got at Urban Records. I checked out Diabolik Records which was a mad house but could find anything I wanted. 

 

As as an aside some of prices for RSD releases were out there.

Wouldn't mind a source for the Floyd in Aust to avoid import ripoffs and postage.  How much is it here now anyway  ?

It wasn't a RSD release. It went on sale a week or so before, but pretty much sold out from pre-orders. A few made it to various stores around the world, most of which were damaged due to quite fragile packaging. The store I got it from ordered 10 of which 1 survived.

Yep, only $25 in America :(

 

Still definitely cheaper than get a nice original mono copy.

I really wanted the Sigur Ros and Jeff Buckley but nowhere to be seen by the time I got to the largest record store in Auckland. :(

Sigur Ros was very limited, only 1 of the stores I visited actually had a copy of all 4 to begin with. Buckley also seemed to be quite limited but the price tag seemed to deter people.

Out of interest how much was the Buckley? It seemed to be listed for about USD45 or GBP45

 

So in AU dollars, $120?

Yeah I saw that.  Add exchange rate and postage, even from UK/EU, and it's too much for me. 

I have to pay post even on the Aussie ones so it's about the same cost. 

I've got two stereos.  Mono is an interesting thing but as an experience not a 'collectable '

      I am not usually excited about the Record Store Day, but sometimes it does have some pretty exciting releases. 2014 was The Field's From Here We Go Sublime. And this year? It is none other than The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld for me!
       
      I will be in Melbourne this weekend and will certainly check out the record stores in the CBD. If you come across a copy somewhere, can you please, please, please post a note here so I won't miss it? I would really like to get a copy!
       
      Cheers,
      Max
       

       
      2016 Record Store Day Release
      The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld (4LP set)
       
      Sounding as fresh and innovative as on its original release in 1991, The Orb’s debut long player celebrates its 25th anniversary this year… and what better way to do that than with this sumptuous 4LP set?
       
      An ambient dance odyssey packed with a wealth of memorable samples from sources as various as the cult ‘Flash Gordon’ movie, Ennio Morricone’s haunting “man with a harmonica†theme from ‘Once Upon A Time In The West’, Rickie Lee Jones’s talk of ‘Little Fluffy Clouds’ (the subject of much controversy at the time) Grace Jones’s ‘Slave To The Rhythm’, NASA’s Apollo missions and Minnie Riperton’s soul classic ‘Lovin’ You’.
       
      Presented in the original landmark artwork – where the use of images of Battersea Power Station nodded to the Pink Floyd psychedelia of old and collided with the modern 90s aesthetic of the Designer’s Republic- the package is rightly regarded as a milestone of modern dance psychedelia.
