Wanted: Bruce Springsteen Record Store Day 7 inch

So check this out. I'm not sure that Cleveland indie retailers realized what a hot item the Bruce Springsteen 7" Record Store Day single would be. I was one of the first people in the door at Music Saves, made a beeline straight for the S section of their RSD exclusives, and any copies that they had, were already gone!

I visited several other Clevo locations, and made a few additional phone calls. Nobody had it.

If anybody out there reading this happened to grab an extra copy, drop me a line - I'd be interested in getting a copy for my collection.


P.S. - My pal Layla has a review of the second night in Los Angeles, a show that featured Jay Weinberg on a few tunes, and guest Mike Ness of Social Distortion. Check out my previous post re: Bruce/Ness here.

    Hi Matt!

    Thres a bunch on Ebay if you haven’t already looked. BTW: The Thin Lizzy was at my door when I got home yesterday. Thank you!


  • Layla

    If I had picked one up I’d be happy to give it to you. Thanks for the mention!

    Thin Lizzy was at Craigs door? That must have been great, a personal concert 😉

  • Matt Wardlaw

    Craig, I’m hoping not to get raked over the coals financially for a copy. Bruce fans are awesome, and I figured it was possible that one of ’em might have an extra.

    Layla – I wasn’t there, but I heard that Thin Lizzy rocked on that doorstep.

    Is there really only 2500 copies? I’ll keep looking, but my chances are slim, I also have no intention of buying off Ebay as well.

  • Matt Wardlaw

    Wouldn’t ya know it, it looks like my good buddy Brian picked up one for me. Helluva guy, that Brian is. Visit his smashing website.

    P.S. – Craig, I think it is really 2500 copies, yes.

    I got ya covered homie! I get side A, you get side B.

  • Matt Wardlaw

    And all I want is you B-side me. Awwww. Okay, I feel sick now.

  • Craig

    I am happy you got one! I’m going to have to work on my record store day networking for next year!
