    Whole thing is a sham...everyday should be record shopping day, or looking for new music day...that said...I did actually buy a RSD release one year on special at the Book and Record bar in West Norwood long after RSD...it's a limited 45 by Dexter Romweber and Jack White doing a ripping duet on Geeshie Wiley's 1930 classic "Last Kind Word Blues" and it fucking rocks....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M2mZxa2UYE
