So I've never been to a Record Store Day in my life, but I'm really keen on these two releases. What do I need to expect? Do you need to get there hours before to be in with a chance of getting a copy?

Nature Boy, bad timing with Head Music Bromley closing due to being displaced by HMV. They always got loads of load Bowie in, perhaps due to the location. There'd be queuing outside the entrance of the Glades about 2 hours before it opens.

Real shame about it closing as they'd always put on live music during RSD too. Something to keep you entertained while you queued, and there was always a fast track queue for people paying cash.

My work colleague said that in the South West he'd be able to buy whatever he wanted with no queueing at all on RSD as there just aren't so many vinyl enthusiasts down there as there are in London.

Get up at 4am and queue at 5am with all the other idiots, spend loads of money , wait a day or 2 and it's on eBay for inflated prices , or wait a month and hey presto , same prices you would have paid on the day !

I did Record Store Day once, never again. Waiting outside in the freezing cold for a couple of hours and you get into the store and I couldn't get the record I wanted. OK, eBay is sometimes a bit more expensive but not all the time but in my view, it's far better paying a bit extra since it saves all the RSD hassle.

Anyway, I can see this thing going for around the same price as the triple disc sets of lazarus and A Reality Tour in the future, so I don't see any need to panic over them.

You are an ungrateful lot aren't you? You moan that the releases are all stuff you have, then they go and release two records of unreleased material (sure BOWPROMO is only marginally diff mixes, but unreleased nonetheless) and all you hear is complaints - 'I can't get it in the shithole town i live in', ' i wanted it to be something else', 'i don't care if i don't get one, didn't want one anyway, so there' boo hoo.

I'm not grumbling, honest, guv'.

Just saying a decent record store close to Nature Boy is closing (which is a big shame). I'm gonna try and get the early mixes of some of the Hunky Dory tracks. Will have to search further afield, but I don't mind.

Not too bothered about the 74 show, but good luck to anyone here who tries to get it.

Thanks mate, yes I was thinking Head would be done by then, so would probably be looking at going uptown for it, just wondering if it would likely be a futile trip or whether chances are good.

If the footage is available, wouldn't it be great if the gig came out on cd and dvd in a nice not too spenny box after RSD? That vinyl lovers get an exclusive and then everyone else gets a nice little package.......

Nice one Andy , I feel the same, queue up and some bastard comes along and buys 2/3 of everything, greed , pure greed .
Anyway as someone said ( S2S Nassau) , anything mixed by Visconti from the achieve is normally shite , and side 6 is a logo etching ffs do me a favour, what about a liquid/oil filled vinyl for the next RSD in 2018 , pure B.S .

Well, here's what we're getting and this probably sounds better. This version has the 10 minute intro too.

A friend of mine was told this:

'I'll get a list of what I'll be getting in and amounts so if you call I'll tell you whether it's worth you coming along. Because of potential queues we are working with a local cafe for food drinks and toilet. As soon as the queue forms I will give out numbered tickets so you don't lose your place. I am only selling one copy of whatever pet person'.

Does that seem reasonable?

@Mike

These are the same 'sources'. The BOWPROMO RSD release should be simply a better copy of 'make way for the rock rollers' as it will be taken from the original tapes (or a pristine needle-drop). It will be missing the Dana Gillespie tracks of course.

Cracked Actor has of course been remixed by 'magic' tony visconti so it'll sound different - whether it's better or not we'll see (or rather hear). The bootleg is a bit boomy and full in places so a sensitive remix could open it up where it needs it. The glitch in All the Young Dudes will be fixed i imagine which will be nice.

I am glad this show is getting a release (albeit via a marketing ploy in the first instance); it's a good listen I've always thought.

Jon

PS It goes without saying (though I am saying it) that these sorts of releases ought to have been included in the recent box set series, but we are - as we have been for as long as I have been a Bowie fan - in the hands of a commercial operation that seeks to extract as much financial value as it can from Bowie's output.
