A fantastic record store! I found a lot of great stuff. Tons of good deals to be had in the $1 bin too. Don't forget to look on the lower shelves! I'm heading straight back here next time I'm in town! Located below a barber shop, so it's kinda easy to miss. A truly hidden gem! Get out there and support your local record store!

This is my go-to place for RSD, the line is usually shorter than Joint Custody. The owner is super nice and has always been willing to tell me what release they have if I call ahead. Last time I was in there he saw I was buying a Wallows release and just offered me tickets to their show, no catch at all I just gave him my email. Probably the nicest thing an owner has done for me somewhere where I wasn’t a regular.
Came in here today, and decided to share my thoughts.. First off the guy behind did not say a single word the entire time we were in the shop. Not a hello or greeting or anything. I guess he didn’t really want business that bad if he couldn’t even say hello. Second, the record selection is disorganized and hard to find anything besides new releases. Third, they are a bit on the pricier side.. not too overpriced, but still overpriced. So yeah, definitely not the best record store like people in previous reviews have stated.
Delightful little shop with some excellent browsing racks. Found some great soundtracks and noticed tons of cool old and brand new stuff.
A wonderful used record store! Definitely a heavy focus on more instrumental, jazz, blues, and the like. Plenty of interesting finds in the world section and new releases as well. The guy at the counter was awesome and fun to talk to, was helpful and nice. Only problem was that the records were overpriced for the quality of the used records (VG to VG+), definitely should be more fairly priced
