Well i’m lucky that i live 2 blocks away from Rough Trade NYC—-so i woke up, went to the gym, and then put on my clothes and walked over to Rough Trade!
There were TWO records i wanted. Both debut reissues. The first was the reissue 12″ of “Supersonic” by Oasis and the second was the reissue 12″ of “An Ideal For Living” EP by Joy Division.
The line at Rough Trade occupied much of N. 9th street and stretched on and down Kent Ave.
After seeing so many people in line, i had my doubts I was going to be able to find the limited edition 12″ vinyl i was after—–but 5 minutes after entering, i had what i needed in hand! It only took 1.5 hours. Well worth it though…..and the records? well i already knew BOTH were amazing….and they certainly are. Both are remastered and sound better than ever. People were so excited to find the records they were looking for…..as was I.
Long live music and long live records!
