Independent records store across Northern California saw an increase in business Saturday on the ninth-annual Record Store Day.

"A lot of artists come together and release exclusive versions of either their existing albums or put out new ones on vinyl that haven't been released yet," Katherine Eytchison, of Armadillo Music said.

Those limited-edition LPs had music lovers lining up early at stores everywhere, including Armadillo and Dimple.

"Spoke to somebody who said he was here at four," Ursula Hebert, of Dimple Records, told FOX40.

Unlike CDs, cassettes and digital downloads, vinyl records have a quality fans say spans generations.

"Even my grandparents have an old stack of old vinyls that they keep in the garage that I'm always looking through," shopper Rachel Demarco said.

This day also appeals to fans of newer music who want limited editions and reissues of popular albums, including Brand New's break-out album "Deja Entendu."

"I know the White Stripes and Bryan Adams put something out, so those were both big hits," Eytchison said. "Brand New was a huge one this year."

Eytchison said Armadillo did at least double its normal business on Saturday.
