Here’s something worth gritting your teeth over: This year’s Record Store Day releases are already popping up on eBay. Yes, as one Reddit thread points out, several exclusives are available to buy right now. And if that doesn’t boil your blood, try and remember this whole holiday was designed to help independent record stores.
Over 120 soon-to-be sought after releases are currently on-sale, including The White Stripes’ Get Behind Me Satan 12-inch for $150, RSD Ambassador Dave Grohl’s own Foo Fighters’ Laundry Room 10-inch for $99, in addition to various 7-inches featuring Bob Dylan, David Bowie/Tom Verlaine, Syd Barrett/R.E.M., Marvin Gaye, et al.
There’s no indication they’re connected to any physical store, and the buyer says they’ll be available “following April 18th, 2015 Record Store Day.” In other words, do not pass Go, do not toss aside your $200, and wait 10 goddamn days.
Your soul is worth it, right?
