I bought it and proceeded to play it on my friend's high-end system. It was glorious – until near the end of Book II when it started...well, I don't know if skipping is the right word, but I guess it is. That or it got stuck in a groove. We tried it again and the same thing happened. Lot of crackling in that section too. Possibly a manufacturing error. Did anyone else have this problem?
This is the sort of issue that I would expect with this kind of release. I doubt if the audio quality was ever a serious consideration, a lot of buyers may never play this record. Presumably it contains only the studio cuts of the two tracks? Certainly that's all that is implied by the packaging. My local store had about 10 copies and I picked up the last one left, late afternoon, for a friend.
I find these releases a bit cynical, tbh. 5000 @ £16.99, sales virtually assured. Good business for selling material that most of us already own. Having said that, any support for independents via Record Store Day is a good thing. Just give the fans something 'special'.

The store you got it from was misleading its customers - very naughty. The only thing new about this release was the artwork.

Yes, I see.  Surprised it seemed to have sold so well, then.  Other Rush RSD releases seemed to be available for months and months afterwards....

I think the 5000 number is total pressing - I believe 500-600 were sent to the UK for Record Store Day, which is probably where the record store in question is getting it's info from.
