So, it is here again – that wonderful day where I queue outside Resident Records in Brighton for 13 or so hours to make sure I can grab all the RSD releases I am after without having to resort to buying from flippers.
Another busy one was had, with a monster queue forming by about 6am – but lucky for me, there were all behind me as my overnight stint had bagged me 7th in the queue.
My first update of #RSD2017 relates to the biggest single artist spend of the day, the 9 Peter Hook & the Light vinyls. Now this really had to be good to warrant the £197 price tag you faced if you wanted them all – and first impressions don’t disappoint.
The overall set comprises of 4 different live variations of Joy Division/ New Order albums:
- Closer, recorded live at The Factory, Manchester, 2011
- Unknown Pleasures, recorded live At The Cockpit, Leeds, 2012
- Movement, recorded live at The Academy, Dublin, 2013
- Power, Corruption & Lies, recorded live at The Academy, Dublin 2013
All LP housed in deluxe gatefold sleeves and pressed on coloured vinyl.
Closer Vols 1 & 2

Following on from the earlier post – I did find some 7″s for myself and, what, with being in the States and all, are the chances of randomly buying vinyl that shares the same colour as the National flag.
My Chemical Romance – No.2 (Cherry Red Vinyl)
Joy Division – Love Will Tear Us Apart (White Vinyl)
Mark Lanegan – Same Old Man [Karen Dalton Cover] (Blue Vinyl)
The Gaslight Anthem – The Señor and the Queen (2x Black Vinyl)
So another successful day……
Surely there won’t be anymore vinyl purchasing updates from Boston in the remaining 3 days…..
