Record Store Day 2015 Arrivals

Record Store Day 2015 Arrivals

Recently, I excitedly reported on how I’d thought RSD was gonna suck for me this year, but how I ended up with the two things I sought anyway. Well, as of today, they are both officially in my hot little hands!!

Metallica’s No Life ‘Til Leather demo cassette (Limited to 10,000 copies):

I know, I know. Cassette. And as Mike pointed out, it’ll likely be on CD later (and with extra stuff anyway) when they do their re-release series (coming soon). Still, it’s a cool keepsake. And every time I check it on Discogs, the lowest prices keep elevating. Who knows, if I hang onto this long enough, maybe I can buy my kid 20 minutes at college someday.

Sloan’s Alternates 12″ EP (Limited to 1,000 copies):

These are different versions of songs from their latest record, Commonwealth. It’s on green translucent vinyl, too. Slooooo-ooooan!!!

In Sum:

I haven’t opened either of them yet. I just wanna… look at all the majesty for a while longer… But I am exceedingly happy to have found (and received) these wonderful items from this year’s RSD. Good times!

  1. That Metallica is a beautiful museum piece. Truly one to treasure for your grand children.


  2. That Metallica tape does look pretty special. So too does a nice green translucent vinyl, though.


  3. And yes simply awesome as the man said.


  4. Green vinyl? Digital download included? Well awww shit I GOTS to get me one of those, dude.


  5. Simply awesome!


  6. That cassette is a cool collectible! Nice.


    • Yeah! I like it, I’m glad the band did it, it’s a nice connection to the past. If you’re enough of a Metallica fan to be a collector, I’d see if I can find one of these before the price gets too stupid!
