Where does it say it's pitch-corrected?

Assumption on my part. The version that was released was supposedly cleaned up and in doing so, they messed with the pitch. I assume that they are releasing this "custodian's mix" as a result of the complaints. If this version is also out of pitch, then really, what is the point of it at all? :)

They're really calling that Evans album "Behind the Dikes"? Okay then...

Also, looks like Resonance is re-issuing the Lloyd Manhattan Stories on Vinyl, and the live set from Roland Kirk looks interesting. 

Probably in reference to the Jazz Behind the Dikes series on Philips:

Is that as interesting as it looks?

Re. Kirk .... believe Gearbox will be releasing Cd's later .... ?

They have done that with the Don Cherry from last year's RSD, so there's hope

I have only one of the original LPs from the 50s (Vol 2 iirc) and like it a lot...  very nice cool jazz / 50s mainstream

Having gone to the Record Store Day website I have a couple naive questions:

Will these records only be available from participating stores always and will they stick to the "limited editions"? E.g. If I want a cd of the Bird in LA does that mean I have to drive to LA on the day and brave the crowds at Amoeba or can I wait and presume that Verve will eventually want to sell more than 1800 copies of this cd.  

What has past experience shown?

Last year, most of my purchases were online. You’ll find that people will have it for a reasonable amount of money. I did go to a record store only hours later. There is nothing worth standing on line for hours.

Is that on-lone from the stores?  I know Amoeba is on-line.

No, eBay or Discogs. Stores never seem to have enough copies of jazz titles and they sell out fast. I purchased the Coleman vinyl on Discogs and didn’t pay much more than the retail price.

Bull Moose Music sells RSD material on line but I think they have to wait a certain number of days. 7 days maybe? For RSD Jazz releases, I've never had a problem finding them, even after the waiting period. Like Brad, I'm not waiting in line for hours to buy it on RSD. You could call Amoeba and ask them what their waiting period is and ask them to ship you the items you want after that day.

All of the RSD albums I have were bought well after the actual RSD and never in person. There's only a few that actually sell out, but the ones I can think of (those Resonance Evans LPs for example) are available as downloads or CDs.
