Record collectors and music fans of all stripes came together in the wee hours of April 19 outside of Amoeba Hollywood to get their hands on the super limited edition Record Store Day titles. Some of the hottest sellers of the morning included a glow in the dark Ghostbusters 10" by Ray Parker Jr, the R.E.M. Unplugged: The Complete 1991 and 2001 Sessions 4-LP box set, a Paramore "broken" 12", and the Cure/Dinosaur Jr split 7". Despite the early hours, there was plenty of enthusiasm, excitement, and camaraderie in the line. And lots and lots of coffee.
Watch our video below to see how the morning unfolded:
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf generously provided coffee for the early birds, helping to fuel their stamina (and ours!).
Our Master of Ceremonies for the day was Mr. Brently Heilbron, a comedian, actor, and original host of our charity auctions, who now lives in Austin, TX.
