That said, I was able to score all three items I went out for today:
Grateful Dead - Vancouver 1966 double live LP
Elton John 11-17-70 double LP reissue with bonus tracks
Super Furry Animals - Fuzzy Logic 2LP reissue
RSD has really helped a lot of the local record shops here in Minneapolis/St. Paul, but mostly the bigger ones from what I hear.
I'm not wishing to cast a negative light on it, but a few record shop owners here have griped to me about how the system is rigged towards the big players and the little guys are left with the scraps. Still a really cool event that I look forward to every year.
