Then at 9:00am we opened the doors to those VIP's who had joined the event page on facebook. From 9-10am excellent deals where available all throughout the store, as well as first crack at all the new releases. This did mean however, that a line was present. Those who were at the front arrived anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour before we opened the doors.
People really didn't seem to care that Metallica had kicked of the inaugural Record Store Day event back in 2008. Their legacy will forever be intertwined with lack of sales, not due to fans file sharing their music, but simply because they are a buch of washed up has beens.
The two best sellers of the day had to be The Black Keys "El Camino" Special Edition, and Animal Collective's "Tranverse Temporal Gyrus", Which both sold out within the first 5 minutes. Backstreet also had a wide variety of the Uncle Tupolo re-releases , and 11 copies of The Misfits classic "Walk Among Us".
