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.
