It happened a couple of weeks ago, but I thought I'd ask:
Did anyone pick up the "Maybe I'm Amazed" 12-inch? I got mine! Side one is the full-length and radio edit in stereo, side two is mono. A nice teaser for the upcoming "Wings Over America" reissue.
Or did anyone get any other RSD exclusives? I might still get the Rolling Stones 5x5 EP... My local shop has a few copies.

Did consider getting the single but decided not to in the end, didn't think I was really missing out by not getting it. I need to save my money up as there are quite a few more expensive things coming out over the next few months that I'll want, and my parents aren't very willing to pay for.
''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''
I don't really understand the appeal of RSD. Labels put out expensive limited editions of things you probably already own. People buy them because they're rare (and many get resold immediately on eBay because they're rare). It seems like a licence to print money, much of which goes back to the major labels. Yes, it supports local independent stores but why not buy something you don't already have, instead of a cynically-released reissue?
That said, I bought the Beatles vinyl box set when it came out, despite already owning the music. I'm not immune!
I know I slagged off RSD upthread, but if anyone's going shopping that day, and can get me a copy of the St Vincent 10" of Pieta and ship it to the UK I'd be hugely grateful. Will reimburse, obviously. Info here.
