What a quintessential part of the UK/Lexington experience. Located right next to UK's campus, you'll definitely want to stop by here at least once while you're in the Lexington area. Good section of old and new, vinyl and CDs. They have some turntables, too. It's hard to walk out of here without finding something to purchase. Parking in the area can be a challenge, but it's well worth the effort, at least once.
Great selection, I found 5 rather rare albums I was seeking. There are lots of posters, CDs, and some cool shirts. Small staff, but knowledgeable. The young lady who assisted me seemed a little surprised that I was seeking heavy metal/doom metal, but she was helpful and nice.

A legit record/CD store still exists people, and it's in downtown Lexington. Been a patron here for decades now and love it. Hope it never goes away. Support your local record shops people.

Best music store in town! They have a great selection of CDs, vinyls, and even cassettes! They also have affordable stereo systems!
Lexington is so lucky to have a record store like CD Central. Here, you can browse from an extensive collection of new and used vinyl and CDs, as well as used DVDs; there’s gifts and posters, too, if you’re looking to decorate those dorm room walls. They participate in Record Store Day, and often have some good leftovers to dig through the next day. Every time I go here, I have a hard time not walking out with $100 worth of records. They keep their new vinyl section well-stocked, and can order something for you if they don’t have it in. Everyone here is friendly and helpful, never pretentious. There is metered street parking out front, and free shared customer parking in the back lot behind the building. Viva Vinyl!
