Yes. I have it. Sounds great! Check ebay but be prepared to pay $300 plus.

I'm thinking this is just a vicious cycle and the actual diehard fans of the bands who make special releases for Record Store Day gets screwed.
The good part is the local record stores that participate get more traffic and sales. Some extra money for them. The e-tailers where the bums who flip those RSD exclusives for crazy money get their commissions and those bum sellers get money to spend elsewhere. Then when RSD comes around again there will be even more exclusives and releases. I think this years PDF list of records for RSD was 3 pages more than last years. The only thing that sucks is the real fan of the bands. we have to wait for the prices to come down or pay the inflated price for the record. Ugh.
They probably will but the price may hover around $250 to $260 for the set. I checked a popular auction site's completed sold listings for the CAKE LP set mentioned here and the price range was from $210 up to $350. Most sold listings are around the mid $200s.
I wonder if certain labels are using RSD as an experiment to see what albums may or may not sell and how much they can price LPs at for their bands later.
Just got email and the presale is on:
