  • 10,078
  • 132

Today sees Morrissey’s Bona Drag re-released amongst 36 other artist's limited edition albums to commemorate HMV's Centenary.
For all intents and purposes, this is the 2010 Major Minor expanded 20th anniversary edition of the record (not forgetting it was re-pressed again in 2016 too), except in coloured vinyl and has a HMV obi strip with the 100 years information.
Along the edge of the strip 'teal vinyl' is mentioned.
There is no matrix message on either record.
The sleeve contains the Zodiac car picture foldout poster:

HMV's appear to have used the same reservation in the queue system as last year and it was: fill in a form/collect when open.
The free coffee was a nice touch.

According to HMV's Twitter & website, from 4pm: any left to sell will be available via their online store (which was done for Vauxhall & I too):

"Cosmic Dancer" b/w "That's Entertainment" vinyl 7" released today (February 19, 2021)

  • 13,552
  • 213

First mentioned last August and 3 months after the digital release of Cosmic Dancer, today sees the official release date of the double A-side black vinyl.
This release appears to be very widely available with HMV, Mporium, most Amazons & Indies having good stocks.
Amazon & HMV briefly listed the release date as January 29, both revising it shortly thereafter.
It will more than likely chart quite high on the vinyl singles chart based on previous releases.

There is no matrix message on either side of the record.

RSD UK 2020: "Honey, You Know Where To Find Me" 10" vinyl released today (August 29, 2020)

  • 12,596
  • 73
Record Store Day (number 13) this year has seen a variety of changes.
Pre-covid, the plan (as per usual) was to release a long list of rarities and collectables.
People would then queue and try hard to get their wants lists met at their indie record store.
Februray 20, 2020, we shared a rumour sourced from the Reps that the 12" (thought at the time) was ready for listing.
This was confirmed the next day with a link to the physical product via 'Bullmoose'.
RSD was due to take place on April 18, 2020, but world events would bring about the end to this plan.
March 4, 2020, Central posted an image of several of these records saying there were 3 tracks on the B-side (there isn't a B-side).
That would indicate they were already made and ready to distribute, but have sat for 5+ months waiting.
RSD then announced (April 29. 2020) the revised plan to split the list up in to 3 and 'drop' over 3 dates with Morrissey being in the first one.

That all said, today finally sees the first of 3...
