The top five stores are in Long Beach. FYI OC Weekly: Long Beach is in L.A. County.

LOL, an OC guide to Long Beach, Long Beach, Long Beach, Long Beach, Long Beach, oh hey, look, finally an OC store. Why not include all the other LA and Inland Empire record stores, guys, since you're so willing to label NON-OC STORES AS OC STORES. So what if it's "just across the border"? If it's in Long Beach, IT AIN'T OC.

@joe.nelson1  See my comment to Joe. We've covered Long Beach since day 1 of OC Weekly because no one else does. Why is everyone so shocked?

Nate

That's how the correspond on the map. 5 LB stores--the best ones that record buyers here want to know about--and 18 OC stores. Chill.

@Nate @joe.nelson1Not shocked, just surprised that after writing "We've called every participating record store in Orange County" the top five in your listing aren't even in Orange County. Way to sell the OC, dude! But you're right - the better record stores are in Long Beach. You say you cover Long Beach because no one else covers Long Beach. Strange, I would figure your sister pub, the L.A. Weekly, would. After all, Long Beach is in LA COUNTY. You may want to let them know about the little gem that is Long Beach. Tell them it's where the Queen Mary is. They may have heard of that.

@joe.nelson1 @spencerj05 @Nate By now you must realize that O.C. Weekly covers LB because L.A. Weekly doesn't really touch it (besides the food section). Most people who live in L.A. won't typically trek to LB for a record store when they have Amoeba in Hollywood, etc. These were all of the record stores who were officially listed as participants on RSD's official site. They are listed from west to east (or northwest to southeast, whatever), not in any 'Top Five' order. Just my two cents. If you'd rather argue online about county lines in California, take it up with L.A. Weekly. They're not going to care though. They opted out of having a Record Store Day post all together because they wanted to focus on Coachella. True story. So you won't find any coverage there.

@spencerj05 @joe.nelson1@NateWhat's the matter? A little sensitive are we? Can't handle a little logic? Instead of arguing my point soundly, you resort to insult. That, my friend, is not only a waste of humanity, but exemplary of a very small brain and nutsack. Go back to your bong.

Only one of myriad reasons the newspaper industry is in the state it's in.

@joe.nelson1 @Nate  Why does this bother you so much? They listed a ton of stores.


People looking to argue just to argue are a waste of humanity.
