    My local record store told me about the event. This is the third year it is catching on pretty good the line was so long it went down the block. A lot of places had live performances. Amoeba in California had some big names playing and signing. People where trading outside after buying it was packed. Many good collector albums limited runs and exclusives.

    I did and went to a local shop today. Scored a couple minty SRV LPs, Aqualung and also The Flaming Lips do DSotM on clear vinyl. Got a bunch of freebie CDs and a copy of Record Store Day 2010, compilation on vinyl. Cool event and I got a nice discount on all my purchases.

    I heard about it, but didn't get a chance to check it out. while interested in it since I don't currently have a TT, I thought i'd just let it go this year, but I'm hoping to have a TT within a year so I'll likely check it out next year.

    I went and picked up a half dozen new titles from the Stones, Boston, Hendrix, and a few others. There were so many college kids in this place it was rediculous. They had a live band as well.

    I asked a couple of the kids what they listened to their vinyl on and they said Numark tables copied to an Ipod...
    HT Setup... Pioneer Elite SC-37, Polk Audio SDA-SRS 1.2TL's , Oppo BDP 93
    Two Channel... Carver Statement 450~1 Vacuum Tube Monoblocks, Dodd Mid-line Tube Linestage with Psvane 12Ax7 tubes, Pioneer Pdd 9Mk II SACD Player, Yamaha PX-3 Turntable with Sumiko BPS EvoIII, Polk Audio SDA-SRS 1.2TLs.

    Me too, it is really well done. BTW I brought this one back from the grave. I was going to toss it because it looked like it was scratched severly and pretty beat up but my wife insisted that I give it my anal retentive restoring treatment and boy oh boy was I glad I didn't trash it. Aside from an occasional pop or tick it sounds really good. It taught me a lesson that no matter how a record looks it can be very deceiving. I have some records that look pristine that are absolutely unlistenable even after the restoring treatment.
