Record Store Day 2017 list was disappointing

So the list is out and impressively long.  Unfortunately I found it sorely lacking in any items of substance.  Too many singles with no real unique value and certainly not budget friendly.  The album releases all seem rather dull reworkings, live shows, and/or rehashes.  I didn't find anything I would rush out for that day.  I was really looking forward to a day out and about rushing from one store to the next to score my wishlist.  Last year my list wasn't long but we had to go to three store to find what I wanted (John Grant, Dead Can Dance, and Etta James).  
I am mildly interested in Sire Records, Just Say 50 - but there is no track list yet and box sets are generally out of my range.  I'd like Big Star's 3rd, but the artwork is dull and there are two other volumes to consider in this archival reissue.  Marianne Faithful's Rich Kid Blues is tempting, but the UK has it on colored vinyl while the US listing doesn't mention color.  The Offspring s/t and Count…

Ivan Dorn - Collaba

This isn't what I would expect to see from a popular Russian singer's video - very inclusive and free-spirited.

Soviet Soviet - Endless Beauty (Official Video)

Amazing band, cool video

Dreamend - So I Ate Myself Bite By Bite

An album I have been searching for - for years.  I was in a vinyl time out period when these came out originally and though I bought the CD and loved the music, when I found out about the animated picture discs once I was back into vinyl, I knew I had to have them.  Of course by then they were collectors items and hard to get anyone to part with for a reasonable sum of money.
