Recordstore Day: exclusive 7'' single.

#1 Post by Danger » Mon 05 Apr 2010, 3:03 pm

Pet Shop Boys release a limited edition seven-inch vinyl single on Record Store Day, April 17th. Side A features "Love life", Pet Shop Boys' hitherto unreleased 2001 recording of a song which became a hit for the Swedish group Alcazar. Side B has "A powerful friend", recorded in 2002 and never released before, which features Release tour guitarists Bic Hayes and Mark Refoy.
It is one of more than 100 exclusive releases from major and indie labels that will be sold exclusively through independent record stores in the UK for the event, which takes place on April 17th. Record stores in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Sweden, Portugal, the Netherlands, Ireland, the USA and Brazil are also taking part.
Neil Tennant comments: "Independent record stores play a vital role in selling music from the fringe as well as the mainstream. We're delighted to be releasing a one-off vinyl single only available in independent shops as part of Record Store Day.

In the spirit of sharing info, I seem to have found the catalogue number via the Picadilly records website: R6810

The description is 'Limited to 1000, dinked vinyl with retro sleeve.'

You'd think they would do a small overun of a few hundred and sell them on the website.

Hmm, but I already have these two songs.
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

They have never been commercially available before, although they were on the official site for a while.

I think we are slightly loosing the point on whether one 'has' a track or not. The excitement with collecting rare vinyl is partly the effort to visit the store and the design of the item itself as well as the music it contains!
