RSD - Guide, Tips and Titles


November 26th  shop open 8am.
The day will be delivered the same as the first two RSD Drops, in other words our shop will open at 8am with social distancing and ONE IN ONE OUT. Any last minute restrictions would be advised.
*If unable to make it to shop on the day we will take text messages to 07904688739 and advise ASAP  if titles requested are still in stock.

List of whats expected below soon....

*Black Friday is the perfect excuse to celebrate both the releases themselves and the unique indie record stores who carry them. Cheap, mass produced frenzy is definately not the goal. Not all UK Record shops participate in this event BUT WE DO.

Q: When is  Black Friday?
A: Always the day after Thanksgiving

Q: What will be available on the day?
A: Selection of titles that are extremely limited as this is a U.S.A. event, small amounts make it to the UK,Europe and beyond.

Q: How will i know what will arrive?
A: We will list all incoming titles on our Website RSD page.

Q: How much will they cost?
A: Prices will be displayed next to titles once they have arrived so check ahead of the day.

Q: What time does VOD Music Record shop open on Black Friday?
A: We will be open at 8am to facilitate people on their way to work or returning from night shift.

Q: What time does VOD Music Record shop close on Black Friday?A: This year it will be 2pm for to allow set up of our Record Fair the following day at Ty Pawb in Wrexham (left overs be on our stall that day).

Q: How many can i purchase?
A: As titles are even more limited than RSD and fewer releases it will be 1 of each title up to a maximum of 5 titles.But it is OK to rejoin any queue if you need more than 5.

Q: Can i Pre order? A: No items can be reserved, purely on a first come first served basis.

Note, whilst this is not RSD, with Black Friday titles so limited if you are desperate to pick up something of the list it is a good idea to get to the shop ahead of opening time

Once priced take that as confirmation they will be at our shop on Black Friday but most likely just ONE or TWO of each with the odd exception due to very limited UK numbers of each title....

2021 BLACK FRIDAY TITLES...maybe additions before the day

Note almost are just one or two of each due to limited amount arriving to the UK.

* Finally, its November so 8am starts can be on the chilly side so make sure warm clothing is too hand.



As LRS has now passed ITS NOT OVER YET, due to the constraints of vinyl pressing plants many titles are yet to be released between September 2021 and January 2022. Our approach will be to list on arrival so check each Thursday to see if the title you are after is listed. There will be only one or two of each as all extremely limited pressings.

Saturday 4th September
9am  Online (not at the shop)
List of expected titles below.

What you need to know for LRS.

1. LRS Titles will have a generic LRS image, Artist/Title/Price info only.
2. From 9am they begin to appear on our online store page.
3. First come first served .
4. To order place order as you would normally.
5. If successful it will be reserved to collect on or after the day (within 14 days). No need for payment until collection.
6. Some titles will have an advance release date.
7. These can be picked up on or after the date (within 14 days).
8. If successful - you will receive an e mail to confirm.

*Just to note on 4th September our shop will be open but not until 11am (to allow us to deal with LRS interest). Our shop will stay open an extra hour until 5pm.
