The quintessential dig. A true neighborhood record store. Plenty of 12 inch singles as well as 45s and LPs. You'll also find tapes, deadstock clothing, posters, tees, biker patches and varying other relics. It's a little rough in there, what you find might not be in the best shape and you might not know the price until you reach the counter. But go in for the experience and you won't be disappointed.
They know exactly what you're talkin about even when you don't and the customers that is surrounding you in the store also is very knowledgeable and it's like being out in the community and just enjoying each other's. it's the little things so life, and going in that store makes me very happy. As I'm playing my Christmas CDs I must go back in there and have some more re made .
My husband and I used to frequent Out of the Past records , over a decade ago. It is a very nostalgic experience and place. If you need some music dubbed, ask for MJ. Who does an excellent job.
MJ and the staff do a real good job of honoring your music request. There knowledge of music is outstanding. They even had some old country music my brother and I like listening to while fishing and we are really R&B guys. Good Job, keep up the great work.
Easily THE best record store I have ever been to. The staff was so kind and helpful. The selection was incredible, I’ve never seen so much music in one place. Even with the large selection, I was able to find the records I wanted right away, and I got them all for a fair price. I highly recommend coming here whenever you visit Chicago. I will definitely come back next time I’m in town.
