No mention of a tote bag on my order, Will they just send one anyway?

You just get one free with any order over £20 I think. It does say it on my order. I have about 4 now I think!

Please say it is! I don't want to go through the crap of queueing outside those bloody shops again!


I asked the same question above, just in case one was a picture disc set, and the other a normal black vinyl.

Apparently, they ARE the same edition. I haven't got a total pressing figure, but rumour has it the QOL allocation was "about" 750. Wouldn't surprise me if it's up on eBay between £75 and £100 within the next few days, as people receive them.

Oh, received this morning.

On the "Back to Black" label. They're a specialist vinyl label, owned by UMG.

I've got a few of the their's actually. I recently bought a pair of classic Hawkwind album reissues, and they were basically the most recent EMI CD reissue tracklistings, only on 180g coloured vinyl.

Received my Fun On Earth double album this morning, only dispatched yesterday. :)

There is also a code allowing you to download the album in mp3 format.

Thats good - I heard this rumour as well! Can't imagine they would do two different runs.

Aw. Mine's still pending.

Although weird thing, my original order is showing as cancelled and another new phantom order is the one showing as pending. I definitely didn't cancel the first order.

Just had an e-mail to say my order has been delayed.

Because they've run out of the free tote bags.

:lol:

Well just had a successful Record Store Day amazingly :)

I was only after 3 LP's and got all of them:-

Roger Taylor - Fun On Earth (2 LP PicDiscs)
Grant Hart - Every Everything/Some Something (LP/DVD documentary film)
Husker Du - Candy Apple Grey (reissue LP on coloured vinyl)

I thought the 7" and 12"s were expensive, so even though there were some nice items, I thought they were overpriced, but i did buy the Ghostbusters 10" in florescent (glow-in-the-dark) vinyl, well who wouldn't :lol:
Hot Space is actually only my 6th favourite Queen album.
(But is a very underrated album in my opinion).

Cause of QueenOnline this is the first year that I've not had to go in and try and buy it in the shop but I'm still going to monitor eBay to see what's happening. So far there's only been 4 FoEs put up for sale and none have sold yet. There's a Buy It Now for £65 and another one for a slightly hopeful £120. There's one with a starting bid of £50 that no one's bid on yet and the one that started low is up to £5.50 although it was only just listed obviously.

So definitely less activity than the Kissing Song or SiS so far.

edit: Just checked up on SIS and the Kissing Song out of interest. SiS only goes for anywhere between £10-20 but the Kissing Song usually goes for £40. Huh. I can't remember the numbers, presumably Kissing Song is just rarer..? Cause the average Queen collector would want SiS more, you'd assume.

I noticed today that Paul Weller will not be participating in any more record store day song releases due to touts getting copies of his single (for record store day) before the shops had even opened.
