This place reminds me of how great a record store can be for music heads.The selection is great from common records to oddball quirky stuff with a wall and a few stacks dedicated to local musicians... and though it's a matter of taste, their racks of suggested records were mostly ones I would recommend or be interested in checking out.I also love that each record (I think) had a card that gives a bit of info about the record, the artists, standout tracks, and similar artists as well as the order of release in that musicians discography. So well put together.
Amazing store and amazing collection.The staff is really sweet and helpful. The owner is also very sweet and gave me a few records for free to try.Overall great experience.
Really disappointed with my visit today. I selected 7 records that came to about $200, 4 new and 3 used. I approached the counter and asked if I could take a look at the used ones (2 of which had no grade stickers on them at all). I was told no, I should just trust that they are good. Then the person had the cheek to ask me what turntable I will be playing them on.I ended up walking out and won’t return, nice way to lose a repeat customer that tends to spend $200+ on each visit.
Great local record store run by people who care about their customers
Decent selection, though not always well-organized - there were house/techno/other electronic records mixed in with the hip-hop 12"s, in an unlabeled section. The actual records available were solid. 2 stars for that.But I hit 5 record stores in Sacramento today, and this is the only one I got talked down at - I asked whether there was a listening station, because there were some lightly scratched records I wanted to double check, and the annoyed-sounding word for word response I got from the guy up front was "no, but that's what your cell phone is for."- basically saying I must not actually know what songs are on the records I want to listen to & telling me to go look them up instead. (My phone can't help me hear what the playback on the scratched records is like!)I got one record anyway, but I had better hauls and experiences everywhere else I went. Buyer beware. I'm clearly not the only reviewer who commented on the bad service.
