Diggin' in the Hip-Hop 12" Crates At 18 Months - Record Store Day 2014 Amoeba Berkeley
"It's been the busiest Record Store Day ever!
" reported Amoeba Berkeley's Gail
at 4pm today - the midway point in the East Bay Amoeba store, that closes at 10pm tonight, during 2014 Record Store Day
at which people were lined up outside from hours before the 10:30am opening of the Telegraph Ave. store this
morning. And once those early shoppers got inside they gravitated towards the sections where they knew their desired RSD releases would be. Then they had to line up to buy them. "Boy there was this very long line that started in here and snaked all the way around, up and down those isles, and then on over to the cash register," said Gail pointing all the way across the store from the world music section, not far from where DJ Inti
was spinning some Afrika Bambaataa
at that moment, while many shoppers (not as many as earlier this morning) were busy digging in the crates. These included the little 18 month old girl with her pops in the above video. One happy record shopper I ran into earlier had copped the special Record Store Day clear vinyl, three record set reissue of the Notorious B.I.G.'
s Life After Death
while another had picked up the RSD reissue of Sam Cooke
's final album Ain't That Good News on vinyl. While many titles may already be gone there are still a lot left and several hours of shopping remain on this Record Store Day 2014. So head over to your local record store, especially if it is Amoeba. Amoeba San Francisco closes at 8pm, Amoeba Hollywood closes at 9pm, and Amoeba Berkeley closes at 10pm today.
