The Isbell EP. My wife will be out of town though so I'm not sure I'll take the kids to wait in line for it.

it's not even that great for record stores b/c of how it's run, they have to make minimum orders to even get some of the highest demand stuff. Then you go in a few months later and see a huge bin of RSD leftovers for sale.

I generally go late in the day or a few days after and work from what little is left over.  It helps me avoid spending too much money.

I did go early one year, when MMJ released the live 10" from Newport Folk. While there are a few releases I would like, nothing worth standing in line at 7am on a Saturday morning. 

I think a better strategy is to have "record-store only" releases made available all year long.  I neat reissue or special release NOT available online would draw folks to the brick-and-mortar, mom & pop local record stores throughout the year.  Also, vinyl pressing plants wouldn't be choking on the huge number of small to medium pressings during one small part of the year (or two, if you include the Black Friday RSD).
Close enough!

I wanna hear that War On Drugs song, too.  I wonder if it will probably be on the album when it comes out eventually?  If I knew it was an exclusive release of the song, I'd be all over it.

This year, I chose to not stress out about RSD.  I strolled in to The Record Collector in Iowa City around 1pm and found one copy each of two releases I was hoping for: The War on Drugs "Thinking of a Place" and Blitzen Trapper "Waking Bullets at Breakneck Speed".  There were other titles I might have considered, but I prefer this casual approach and its kinder to my wallet. 

I hope everyone scored some gems today!
Close enough!

Grateful Dead - 7/29/66 Vancouver

Wynton Kelly Trio/Wes Montgomery - Smokin in Seattle

No luck on the Ken Kesey - Acid Test

Edit: was able to order the Acid Test today from presser. Only 2000 made. It's bad, bizzare and cool recording. Nostalgic for sure.

love the new War on Drugs song.
Listening to Isbell 1979 now. Any cover of Atlantic City is cool in my book.
DBT up next.

nope. I wasn't surprised either since it's entire recording was pure analog, kinda kills the idea imo. But maybe someone has one of those USB turntables.

I don't have a turntable  but I would love to figure out a way to have and hear that live Isbell release. Would anyone be able to help with this? Anyone know if it might surface in another format to be purchased. Not lookin for a free ride, just want to hear it real bad....

I picked up the new War on Drugs single, Door Live album, Santana from woodstock, Stevie Ray Vaughn from Carnegie Hall and Cheap Trick.  Some great stuff this year.
If you don't know for yourself, how could you ever know for me....
