Most copies will end up in the hands of "Flippers" and will be on ebay, with a price tag way INXS of what its worth. Same old stary....real fans get shafted

Stay positive Smee. You got this, it's a purchase.

Im pretty sure i stand NAE chance of getting this. Im positive my Record Store owning mate told me that basically, Certain Stores always get dibs on the best stuff, and then small shops get the scraps. My mates store falls into the latter category lol

So maybe Lilly White will tweet where Jimmy Hoffa is burried and then delete that too.

Has Lillywhite removed the tweet - can't seem to access it?...

What tweet? Nothing to see here. It's gone, you must be dreaming.

I just imagined you telling me there was no tweet!

No local indie record store near me, I'm not paying silly money for it.

And they don't sell. Patience. I live in a small town that has an indie store. They allow people to line up 30 minutes before they open on RSD and come out with a pen and paper and write down what people want so you know in advance if their allotment is spent. The first couple of times when I said 'U2' they would give me a dirty look, and I would immediately say 'I am a mega fan; I swear this isn't going on eBay' and then they smile and it is all good.

RS ppl are notoriously judgemental and socially exclusive. They ALWAYS have one up on you. Realize that being hip is a black hole that you can't win.

I'm excited for this release. Always cool to see them take part in RSD, even if it's turned into a farce of sorts.

From the picture, it looks like the record is played at 45rpm, so maybe it's a 10'?

U2 are truly the line in Sgt. Peppers ... 'they've been going in and out of style ...' :)

They couldn't find ANYTHING to use as the b-side for this? Maybe one of the songs cut from MSG? UnFire maybe?

Good point.  One of the cut songs as a b-side would've been a really appreciated idea.  There's no real reason to purchase this otherwise except for novelty's sake.
