The line started forming in the wee hours of Saturday morning, as music fans jostled to get a prime spot in the queue for Record Store Day 2015 at Amoeba Hollywood. Our friends at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf were on hand to pass out coffee and pastries to our dedicated morning visitors while they filled out their lists of the Record Store Day exclusive releases they hoped to score. Behind-the-scenes, our busy Amoeba elves got to work filling orders. For the hundreds standing outside, the wait was finally worth it when they could cop the special, limited release LPs they’d been hoping for. Visitors could also grab a special Amoeba goodie bag featuring Converse Chuck Taylor art designed by Amoeba employees (including one pictured below featuring work by store co-owner Marc Weinstein) and packed with all kinds of awesome surprises.
We talked to the vinyl enthusiasts in line at Amoeba this morning to find out what they were looking for this year and why they love vinyl so much.
