Due to it being the shop's first Record Store Day, Vinyl Revolution"s owners weren't expecting much of a queue.
They were surprised to learn that their first customer Steve had arrived outside the shop at 3.05am.
He wasn't alone for long and when owners Simon Parker and Rachel Lowe arrived at 6am they were thrilled to see a sea of familiar, smiling faces.
The queue saw people sharing friendly banter and Bagelman
opened early to serve breakfast bagels and hot drinks and the first thirty in the queue gratefully received a free breakfast.
Simon Parker said "One of the most memorable events during the day was a gentleman donating the last copy of David Bowie's live album 'Welcome to The Blackout' to the lady behind him who desperately wanted a copy for her husband who had attended the concert. It was that kind of a day"
from BBC Sussex
added to the atmosphere by broadcasting his entire morning show live from Vinyl Revolution.
For the first time in decades Danny played all the show's music on vinyl from record
decks set up in Vinyl Revolution"s window.
Duke Street shoppers were treated to a window display unlike no other and listeners in Sussex and Surrey shared Danny's re-discovered love of vinyl.
With most of the Record Store Day stock having sold out by midday Vinyl Revolution's focus moved from selling music to celebrating it.
Five live bands played on a stage set up outside the shop and large crowds gathered to enjoy the music.
The bands included competition winners Dirt Royal who are a local band specialising in a clattering new wave sound, followed by lysergic psych pop from White Room, before moving on to Scotland's dirtiest rockers The Filthy Tongues, Brighton's swamp blues specialists Mudlow and the ornate and affecting indie pop of Desperate Journalist.
