Live On Sunset Strip!

Recommended Posts

JohnO   

I just posted this elsewhere (on a "Where To Buy" thread)...in Washington, DC, which, I hope, qualifies as a major city (even if we didn't have a MLB team for 30 years!), I've come up blank as far as getting the new CD at Borders, Barnes & Noble (which has a huge display for the new Korn CD, also released today(!?)) and Kemp Mill Music - with Tower gone, these are 3 of the biggest music retailers now in this area. If I can't find it in Melody at Dupont Circle, I'll probably go the overnight delivery route with Amazon, in lieu of driving to Baltimore or Richmond, where I know I'll be able to find it.....

I understand the reasoning of not stocking something if it won't sell....but this is a Rykodisc release, not on some mom & pop label. The Kemp Mill Music I was just in had a copy of Tommy Keene's latest release, for example...why not "Live On The Sunset Strip"? (And no, there's really no point in asking the proprietor, who's blasting the latest hip-hop releases at sonic volume when you walk in the store...)

Sorry Julesberry,I thought you were from "Pewaukee." In any case in the grand scheme of things, I think it'll be cities like NYK, and LA where you're likely to find multiple copies of the disc.

seems it was stated somewhere before, but i can't seem to turn up this info anywhere now: does anyone know when those of us who ordered the original LE set 8 months ago are due for theirs to arrive?

Thanks for the info on Mayfield Heights Best Buy, Baby Sister. I was going in that direction today and was going to stop at Best Buy to pick my deluxe edition up. NOT! Dopes! Don't they realize this is the Raspberries hometown? Nobody seems to get it here.

AS soon as they say "no" they don't have it?

Ask "Is it on order?" if still "no" is the answer --- then ask "are you guys smokin' crack in the back or runnin' a meth lab?"

That oughtta get the point across!!

Raspy's having fun. This is exciting to monitor. I was going to stop by Borders and Best Buy on the way home in SD. Are you guys saying there won't be any there?

I just want to look. I've already spent my ONE HUNDRED THIRTY SEVEN DOLLARS, THANK YOU...

But I saved on tax, which is nice.

Anyone in Lake county, Ohio (east of Cleveland)can get either set at Record Den in Mentor. They have multiple copies of both versions.

In metro Cleveland, I'd shoot for the FYE store at The Rock hall.

I don't post here often, but today is a special day.

I just bought my Deluxe version at Sam Goody's in downtown San Diego. They had five copies in stock under " Raspberries ".

I played a couple of tracks when I got back to the office, and it sounds great. I'm excited to listen to the whole show, and watch the DVD.

My goodness. That version of SHOULD I WAIT on this release could be a hit if it could get airplay.

Overnight Sensation is outstanding as well. I cannot believe that a song with all the vocal parts as that one can be done so well live. (and I seen these guys do it live 5 times on the tour but this just confirms my ears at that time)

And quite a few other gems on this release as well.

I just bought Let's Pretend, Go All The Way, Should I Wait, and I Wanna Be With You from iTunes to tide me over until i can get the CD...I can't wait to play 'em on the air tomorrow morning...I know it sounds crazy...But i like listening to 'em on my tinny laptop speakers to get that AM radio sound i remember so well...These are damn good songs and they still sound fresh after all these years.

btw...If you stop by my MySpace you will see a familiar picture...I saw Raspyrock with the Live On Sunset Strip poster as his default pic...and now i've got it up too.

Just wondering...why is it so much later for us that pre-ordered than for when you can pick it up in some stores (from what I'm reading)?   This could be a problem as the hubby & I may be out of town within a week of the 6th, ugh!!  If anyone can explain the delayed date that would be great!  Guess I'm getting anxious but I'm confused just the same...

can't wait!!   :)

Well...after checking out about 15 stores last night, I FINALLY found a copy of the single disk 13 song version at a Borders in downtown DC....which I promptly snagged, and have been playing since. No sign anywhere of a single copy of the Deluxe version in the DC metro area.....Surprisingly, at an Olsson's I found the new Robert Gordon/Chris Spedding/Jordanaires Elvis tribute CD....Ryko's other 7/31 release!
