The sixth annual Record Store Day kicked off early this morning at Amoeba Hollywood, with some folks getting in line for the limited RSD releases as early as midnight the night before. We started passing out the RSD menus around 7:30am, shortly before the steaming hot Coffee Bean coffee and pastries arrived to fortify the early birds in line.
Huge thanks to the Coffee Bean for providing our customers (and our staff) with hot coffee and delicious pastries this morning. Happy 50th anniversary, CBTL!!
As in years past, we collected the menus and began filling orders, letting the first wave of RSD customers in around 9:30am. The hot titles were gone in a flash - the Drive soundtrack LP, Bayside Live at The Bayside Social Club LP, Sigur Ros Agaetis Byrjun 10", Title Fight/Touche Amore split 7", Dave Matthews Band, Their They're There LP, the Poltergeist soundtrack, Captain Beefheart's Frank Freemans Dance Club LP, Notorious B.I.G.'s Ready to Die LP, and many, many more.
