I’ve been going here for years ever since I went to ISU. Now I have family that goes to ISU and the establishment is still as fantastic. It was my first record store I ever went to and now I have dozens in my own collection, many from this location. Thank you so much for your service to the industry and your impeccable customer service, music knowledge, and excellent collection. Without a doubt, the best record store I’ve ever been to.
got kicked out. owner said i was handling a record improperly, even after i explained multiple times that i was not touching any parts of the record that contained actual music. owner rudely told me to “go play with somebody else’s records and shop somewhere else.” disappointed in a store i used to previously admire.
You can't find a better place than North Street to source your favorite vinyl. The golden era of the indie record store is long gone which makes this shop a rare gem. Jim and Jeff are music nerds in the very best sense of the word and know their stuff, hardcore! If you relish the days of the record store curator of amazing jams, come talk to these guys to get turned on. I have been talking music with them for over 20 years and buying records from them for a long time too. Keep on rocking, dudes!!
staff are great. one of the counter guys showed me some neat local sludgecore & even played it in the shop for me. 10/10, come here for your cd & vinyl needs, these guys are rad
My friend and I were accused of stealing after being rudely asked to leave by one of the owners. We were record shopping and had just bought vinyls from the store next to this one prior to this encounter. We decided to take pictures of what we got in front of the store (in front of another owner) when this owner in particular came from the back and told us to leave due to suspicions of us stealing with the bags our vinyls came in from the previous store. After coming back and expressing our dissatisfaction with his comments, he was rude and seemed unapologetic with his responses. We’ve shopped at this store before, which usually contains a positive environment, so this encounter was unfortunate for us. While this store has good items, the attitudes of some of the owners here are very unacceptable.
