Syd Barrett / REM 'Dark Globe' 2015 Record Store Day 7

This afternoon, the 2015 Record Store Day releases have been announced, and amongst the limited run pressings, available for one day only (April 18th, 2015) through independent record stores, is a single featuring Syd Barrett.

Pressed up on a 7" gold, white, red and black mixed vinyl single as a Rhino Records RSD exclusive is Dark Globe - on one side performed by Syd, on the other, REM's excellent cover version. It is part of Rhino's Side By Side 7" series, with two artists performing the same song.

There are two different tranches of releases - those in the US, and those in the UK. This Syd/REM single is being released as part of the US releases, AND also in the UK.

As with all Record Store Day releases, it will not be available online (other than inevitably on eBay from the morning of April 18th) but while stocks last in participating independent record stores. Be prepared to get to your local store prior to opening, and be ready to queue!

There are a lot of independent stores that participate in Record Store Day. Not all of them will choose to participate in all promotions, or carry all releases. Just because a store is listed on the RSD website does NOT mean it will have the goodie or record you're looking for. That said, find a store near you and check with them directly. They won't hold an item aside for you, but at least you'll know if it will be worth the trip!
