Hi Therese! A great opening for any show!

Hi BGZ! Back in Chicago again - having a good time there?
Avatar 12:10am BadGuyZero:

Hi Matt...having a lovely time here. Once I got here anyway. Lightning almost hit my plane.

Been to shows every night [just got in from one]. I'm here until Friday afternoon. My future holds more shows, record shopping and seeing "Ishtar" on the big screen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10am Julie:

turning volume down so as not to disturb neighbors with your "rock and roll" music

Hello from suburban Boston, terror-free for over 48 hours
Avatar 12:11am BadGuyZero:

How was your RSD haul, Therese? I'm assuming we'll hear some of it after this Boston tribute set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Considerate of you; "rock", and/or "roll" music could drive them crazy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12am Tome:

Hi Therese hi Kiddles,,,Great Start...,:) .where the BU girls at hehe :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am Matt from Springfield:

@BGZ: Sounds great! And the 80s flop "Ishtar" on the big screen? :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13am Julie:

Therese always makes out on RSD
Avatar 12:15am BadGuyZero:

@Matt: Yes, THAT "Ishtar." It's actually a pretty decent flick. I don't know why it was so maligned.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15am Nardo:

Primo choice with Pixies tune. Will cross fingers for Mission of Burma.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am Tome:

Lemonheads yea..!
Avatar 12:21am BadGuyZero:

A friend of mine spared me having to find a copy of that mystery "Side-By-Side" series 7-inch. A store in Denver put labels on the outside of the copies they had letting [warning?] people who the artists on it were.
Avatar 12:23am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...reminded of Pete Townshend on Letterman - saying:
"Karma's a funny thing. I'm on the road a lot in hotels - & sometimes other people's music's too loud to sleep - so I knock on their door & it's like - *Pete Townshend* says our music's too loud!!"...

- One thing comes out of this anyway: A few Sets on Programs showing the range of great Boston music...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23am Matt from Springfield:

Yay cassettes!
Avatar 12:25am tomB:

Viva MASS! I, too, thought Ishtar was great. Did anyone ever cover the songs? A possible FMU premium? I wish to buy a blind camel.
Avatar 12:26am amEdeo:

Cassette appreciation!
Avatar 12:27am Joe B:

Count me as an Ishtar fan as well. Saw it on the big screen last year! not on DVD for some reason.
  12:28am Chop Scott:

Your show is always just what I needed--Cheers!!
Avatar 12:28am Joe B:

There was a side by side of the Stooges and someone else doing No Fun. I passed (wasnt the Pistols)
Avatar 12:32am BadGuyZero:

@Joe: I heard it's being released on blu ray later this year. I haven't been able to find a release date. I'm wondering if it's going to be released by one of those labels that does small runs of DVDs/blu rays that they license from whichever studio holds the home video rights. [like Screen Archives...they released "Bye Bye Birdie" on blu ray in an edition of 3,000 copies].
Avatar 12:34am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...teenaged Ann Margaret in super hidef? Surely it is an Age of Wonders...
Avatar 12:35am BadGuyZero:

It was The Black Keys covering "No Fun" on the b-side. I scored a copy of that. I also got the "Holy Diver" [Dio/Killswitch Engage] and "Highway Star" [Deep Purple/Type O Negative]. I'm still looking for that Danzig/Lemonheads and Doors/X singles from the Side-By-Side series.

I've been a fan of Brian Dewan since I first heard him--this accordion version of "MTA" is superb in only a way he can make it!

Did you go to Iris?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50am Julie:

May you always be perceived as a team player
Avatar 12:50am amEdeo:

Iris! Oh the money I spent there yesterday... goodbye food money.
Avatar 12:53am BadGuyZero:

The store I went to had everything behind the counter. You had to give them a list. Fortunately I had made one; usually I have a mental list and just flip through all the records. So I gave them my phone so they could see my list. About half an hour later the clerk returned with my total. *ugh* I spent more than I intended. It would have been nice to know how much those records were going to be ahead of time so I could have prioritized what I purchased to stay within a set budget.

So long story short...I feel your pain amEdeo.
Avatar 12:54am KP:

Hello, Therese.
Avatar 12:56am KP:

The place where Scharpling DJ'd had similar setup. A list with items crossed out. Not crossed out, you could buy it. No prices so I ended up with Built to Spill for $29.
Avatar 12:56am Droll:

A record store where you don't flip through LPs yourself? You have to know what you want in advance and bring a list? No browsing? Really?
Avatar 12:57am amEdeo:

oh wow, that is kind of crumbum-y of them. Iris had the records out in crates. Only wound up buying a few RSD specific things, but then I wound up going through the rest of the crates.... and then the dollar ones they put outside. Yep.
Avatar 12:58am KP:

That was generation records. The Livids played, very good. Of course only the RSD stuff was like that
Avatar 1:00am KP:

Hit two places. Brian Turner was at Kim's in east village, Tom in west.
Avatar 1:00am amEdeo:

Wow really, Generation too? Is that just standard RSD protocol? Seems like such a counterintuitive idea to not show prices.
Avatar 1:02am KP:

No. Kim's was not like that. Revolution Records had a line out door all day.
Avatar 1:06am KP:

Got the Doors/X. Clear vinyl. Very cool. It was like $6 at Kim's
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07am Therese:

In NYC, it seems to be a 50/50 split between the stores that display the special releases and those who have them behind the corner.
Avatar 1:09am BadGuyZero:

The store I go to in Dallas used to only let five people in the store for the first three hours. When one left another person was let in. I guess enough people complained about because now they have put all the RSD releases in one section and control how many people are in that area at any given time. The store I went to in Denver a couple of years ago had everything in two bins at the front of the store. It was insane. You know those videos they show on the evening news of stores opening for Black Friday? That's exactly what it was like.

I don't necessarily have an issue with a clerk being the only person that can pull your selections. But at least provide a list with prices so we can select what we want while we're waiting in line. Most of the clerks at the store I was at were refusing to assist anyone whose list was on their cellphone. Jerks.
Avatar 1:11am amEdeo:

Oh yeah. I always forget that Kim's exist. I really shouldn't, but I do... I even had a dream about it once.
Avatar 1:12am BadGuyZero:

I also went to the Numero Group's pop-up shop in Logan Park. They only had the RSD items released on the label which included a 10-inch and some cassettes that were only available at that pop-up store. A friend in Dallas had asked me to try to get one of the 10-inches for them. Success!
Avatar 1:12am KP:

Last year on LI, my local place had it all it one big cardboard box. They'd hand the box to you, you'd hand it off. Got what I wanted though. Gene Clark of course.
Avatar 1:13am amEdeo:

Whoa that is nuts. And yeah, totally nothing wrong with assistance, but no prices is a bit... I don't know.
Avatar 1:15am KP:

Kim's was cool. I remember it more as video. I just moved into that area. Actually should be drastically downsizing but it was fun.
Avatar 1:15am Droll:

RSD sounds like an Apple store on new gadget day, or Xmas at a dozen other retailers.

Most retailers have this sort of thing figured out already, are record stores so unaccustomed to customers they resort to filling orders like a burger place?
Avatar 1:15am amEdeo:

Avatar 1:17am BadGuyZero:

I acquired 29 RSD releases for myself. That was about 2/3 of what was on my list. I'll be hitting stores this week hoping to find the others.
Avatar 1:19am KP:

Holy smokes!
Avatar 1:22am KP:

I was not alone, and we just moved from a huge house to an apartment. ... But I had this Small Faces disc in my hand and now really regret putting it back

Avatar 1:24am tomB:

My RSD visits yielded slim pickings. Hope to find the cassette 3pk, the "Green" Smalls, "Kitchen", &"No Fun". And slightly cheaper prices on the rest.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40am Therese:

Julie- I told you I spent WAY too much money yesterday.
Avatar 1:43am KP:

There was A Tommy Roe release. Oh man, MJM loves him. She grew up in England when he was huge over there.
  1:45am Frank:

This is dull
Avatar 1:45am KP:

Therese when I saw that No Bunny box I thought of you.
Avatar 1:53am tomB:

re Tommy Roe: yes to Sheila, Everybody, Winter's Day. NO to Dizzy, Hazel, Sweet Pea.

Just now saw on FB that Christina Amphlett of Divinyls died.

Yea Hawkwind !!! :)
  2:09am Beavoux:

My fave was Jam up and jelly tight, bought the 45.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13am fleep:

KP She was so beautiful. Just looked at the I Touch Myself video, people are posting farewells. So sad, only 53.
Avatar 2:16am KP:

Too bad they didn't really follow that up. Person I know on FB - Kathy Fennessy / is a big Seattle blogger/critic. She posted a different song and it was good
Avatar 2:22am KP:

Beavough, you mean originally, right? Or record store day? My wife lived in England in those days. There was recent book about the David Cassidy hysteria of those days and she was part of it. Slade and T-Rex and others as well.

1969 I was 10

Hah, Beavoux for once I just thought before saying something.
Avatar 2:58am Mike from MPLS:

Therese, you are outside of my normal listening time, but I'm excited to add you to my list of shows to keep up with each week.
Avatar 2:59am BadGuyZero:

Have a great week, Therese!
Avatar 3:03am KP:

Thanks Therese your RSD shows are more fun than the event itself.
