RE: waiting in line for a long time to buy records...

At the nearest record shop to where I live - specialized in Jazz and Blues LP's - had crowds on RSD (and also on most Saturday Mornings). The clientele is most definitely NOT hipsters trolling for eBay sales. THere are a couple of them, but it isn't the main part of the business. I know the owner, and he told me that in the 20-odd years of being in business, he almost went under 3 years ago, but vinyl sales rising has saved him.

But being 5 hours from NYC ... that's a long distance for someone to get to on a fixie. :)

At least in the hinterlands, in Upstate NY, Vinyl is really coming back. The city I live in has a population of about 700,000 - and we have 6 record stores that either have a large amount of vinyl, or only sell vinyl. 2 have opened in the last few years.
