I know it is not everyone's favourite day, for good reason. But it would appear there are some nice releases lined up.

Work, Rest and Play gatefold 7" - was originally listed as a double LP, but it is a single.

Both Dance Craze and This Are Two Tone half speed masters - I wonder if they will have the posters or not.

The most intriguing - a Specials 10" Dubs release - apparently previously unreleased tracks.


The Terry Hall Fanpage on facebook also says Terry's solo LP Home is rumoured to be released on vinyl for RSD.[/quote]

It's probably more of an American thing now, with so many record shops either closed down, or like HMV, selling books and Mars bars to keep up the footfall.

Comming to you on a well known auction site selling for at least three times RRP.

It's quite funny to see the times of the listings on the aforementioned web sites on RSD. Sometimes it's just hours, if not minutes from, the shops openning.

It's all a load of bollocks...but I shall still be queuing in line. Some shops are good at restricting to one item per customer. But it is also bizarre later in the afternoon how easy it is to pick up some items while the feeding frenzy on ebay rages.

I should have said unreleased versions rather than unreleased tracks - the A Side is Gangsters.

If it's the orginal line up then great. If it's Terry, Horrace and Lynval, I'll give it a miss.

I spoke to a small record shop owner once about RSD and he said it was indeed bolllocks. Shop owners have to pay a fee (about £700 I think he said) just to take part in the event. And even then there is no guarantee you will get the releases you requested.

I like the idea of artists releasing something new, but let's be honest...putting something out that's already on hundreds of compilations only appeals to record collectors, rather than anyone looking for new music. They aren't always one and the same.

With all the auction sites, RSD has already been devalued (or maybe that's the wrong word, under the circumstances). If artists only put out previously unreleased work or things that have been long out of print, it might bring a bit more credibility back to the day.

Looks like an extension of what was released a few years back (w/ the "Rat Race" and "Sock It To 'Em JB," 7") OG unreleased dubs... Saw a pic saying "Gangsters" + 2 other tracks... Hmm...
