I think this is the biggest record store around that has a very diverse library of music. The place is kind of hidden from the public eye since it’s in the corner of a small shopping “plaza”. From the outside it looks discouraging but once you enter you’ll be amazed at how big the store is!Pros: Friendly staff, they sell cassettes, participate in record store day, they sell on discogscons: some prices are more than on ebay/amazon.
Another amazing place off the beaten track that had literally thousands of vinyl records and CDs. I have never seen so many SST releases in one place before. Their Hardcore Punk vinyl section was truly inspiring. Could have spent much more !!
Freaking awesome record store!!!! Great prices and amazing selection. Easily could spend a couple hours here.
Full disclosure - I worked for the store for awhile, but I also think, as someone who travels semi frequently and likes to visit record shops, I’d have the same perspective regardless.Redscroll, hands down, is one of the best record shops I’ve ever been to, if not THE best in terms of selection. You can dig for gems in their used bins but they have plenty of great new records as well. I believe any music fan can find something they’d be interested in ranging from punk to country to black and death metal. Truly an outstanding selection from all genres considered ‘underground’.Do yourself a favor and stop by here, just budget a good amount of time to go digging. :)
I'm honestly scared at reading the bad reviews hearing about this horrifyingly bad unfriendly staff. While I don't think they would win Congeniality Awards, they were polite and unobtrusive just the way I'd kind of like a record store staff. I'm sure if I needed something they would've been helpful.But we didn't! The place speaks for itself, good used and some new records and CD's at unbelievably low prices. I swear I bought back all the old records I probably got tossed on me years ago. There was plenty for my wife and myself to take home! Working like new, cheaper than they were in 197x-198x.We're like many new to the "back to vinyl" world and thrilled to pay way less than new.For those who get offered only an exchange if bringing back, I can't imagine there isn't SOMETHING you'd exchange to there! There's so much! We got 7 albums we wanted for $35... seriously that's problematic for some people?I was so delighted to find this haven of vinyl today and no doubt we will be back.I don't have anything bad to say....a rare 5 stars from me and I hope it always stays that way! Thanks!
