Anyone else take part in Record Store Day today?

I stopped off at Purchase Street Records in New Bedford, MA. The store is owned by a friend of mine. He had the local rock station there from 10am - 12pm so I got to meet the morning DJ who I've been listening to for almost 3 decades. I spent some time talking to him about music so that was fun. I also met the afternoon drive time DJ.

Spent some time talking with other music fans and searching through the bins. I didn't spend a lot of money but I ended up picking up Billy Squier's Signs of Life on vinyl and both Flashback - The Best of the J. Geils Band and Ozzy Osbourne's Blizzard Of Ozz (the original version with Bob Daisley & Lee Kerslake still on the recording) on CD.

So what did everyone else do, if you took part and what did you pick up?

I managed to get Cheap Tricks Epic Vol. One 2LP. Set. But was shut out on the Lumineers Song Seeds. It's a small town Store but crowded at the open with a very helpful and eager staff.
My nephew who lives in Nashville was in town for a visit and contacted me to see if I wanted to go RSD shopping with him. We went to my friends store, Cool Beat Music and Books in Cheektowaga, N.Y. He didn't have any of the special releases of the day, being a recently opened store. I was able to get David Live, Allman Brothers Brothers and Sisters, This Is The Moody Blues, The Yes Album, and Peter Gabriel's self titled album. I also picked up 2 Dwight Yoakam CD's. Something about him, I'm a newbie fan of his... Great singer and songwriter.
Good recaps you too.

I should point out that I wanted to pick up the Cheap Trick release, but the store I would've gone to for that opened at 8am and I had to bring the car in for work at the same time. By the time I would've gotten to that store, the release was gone anyway.
