Derek is a super rad owner with helpful kiddos and an incredibly clean and organized store. I’ve seen numerous vinyls here that I haven’t found elsewhere, one of them being a tricky to find “Channel Orange” by Frank Ocean. We had a nice discussion about that record’s rarity, it’s amazing price, and where it came from. It turned out to be a very cherished gift for my partner and I’m thankful. More like 10/10.
I'm old. Yes, I admit it. I grew up listening to cassettes and LPs. With age comes nostalgia so after buying a turntable, I was very happy to see there was a store still catering to "analog" music. It's a small place, but packed & with a friendly & knowledgeable staff, chances are you'll find what you're looking for—although I do wish they had more Blues records. Good prices as well. 5 stars.
Exceptional service! Great collection, but what really stood out was the owner, Derek. We had a lot of questions about selection, availability, and turntables, all of which he took the time to help us out with. Looking forward to grabbing more albums from this shop!
I called the shop to get a gift certificate for my daughters birthday, March 29th. She has recently started collecting vinyls. Since she lives in the Boise area, and I live in California, I thought I would try my luck at one of the local shops up there. The phone call was great. The gentleman, I believe was named Dereck, was very professional and helped me through the process. I got a call from my daughter, after her visit. She was so thankful for the gift at such a pleasant shop. She walked out with more than just vinyl, she seemed to be inspired and is definitely going to visit the shop again. Will
Great selection of new and used vinyl. Prices are fair. Always a fun place to go, always gotta be careful not to spend too much here!
