My local shop has copies of both the Death From Above - Trainwreck 1979 10" and The White Stripes - Get Behind Me Satan. I'd be more than happy to pick them up for someone for sticker price + shipping. 

I'm in Canada...

 

I'm also looking for a couple RSD titles as well:

Every Time I Die - Salam 

Brand New - Deja Entendu (yeah... I know...)

 

I'd also be open to trading Deja for Get Behind Me Satan 

and Salam for Trainwreck 

 

 

Cheers!

Neurotica Records has the Stripes!

Thanks. I live 3 minutes away from Neurotica but haven't bothered checking. Guess I'll walk over tonight. They also have the Space Project from last RSD I've been looking for forever, but I guess it never sold in the shop, so they bumped the price up to the internet price and now want $60 for it. That sort of thing turned me off from the shop.

No wonder Neurotica still has the Stripes and DFA79, their prices are laughable. $75 for the stripes and $25 for a 2 song 10" DFA picture disc? I passed on the Stripes for $55 on the weekend cause it was too expensive. Those things will sit there forever. Rotate must have still had 15-20 copies of the DFA when I was there Sunday and they only wanted $17 for it. How two stores in the same city, who likely use the same distributor, can be $7-8 apart on a title is mind-boggling. I don't know how Neurotica has stayed in business as long as it has.

Yeah, their pricing is a little weird. Was in there today and saw the European pressing of Songs for the Deaf by QOTSA was actually $15 cheaper than what I paid at Kops across the street a few weeks ago. Go figure.

I looked at that too, but it is clearly a bootleg. If you picked up a real one at Kops for only $15 more you got a deal. They have many bootlegs they don't advertise as such. I don't know if they are intending to be intentionally deceiving or not. The SFTD and S/T plus a lot of the other records in that section of the store were all bootlegs.

 

I was hoping to find some live QOTSA bootlegs actually once I saw they carry boots, but they didn't have any.

Out of curiosity, how can you tell it's a bootleg? From what I could see, the packaging looks exactly the same as the copy I bought from Kops.

It was clear vinyl. That version (UK) was on black vinyl. Any other colours would be a bootleg. There are black bootlegs out there as well. Plus the cover and sleeve is of much lower quality than the original.

Ah OK, I didn't even look at the colour of the records. Mine are black, so hopefully they're legit.

If it was sold as new then it would be a bootleg, if it was sold as used then there is a chance it is legit. You can do some research on Discogs on minor differences between originals and bootlegs to figure it out.
