The owner is very helpful and willing to assist in finding exactly what you’re looking for. He has a large selection of new and pre-owned vinyl records.
Lovely place. Very short trip just outside of Detroit proper. I spent a little over an hour flipping through the mostly organized selection of new and used vinyl. Found something I've been wanting to grab. The staff was kind and down to help. I could tell by a few conversations that they have developed a great rapport with their patrons. If I lived in the area, I could definitely see myself stopping in from time to time.
Andy is the best!!! I brought my deceased fathers record player in from 1977. The turntable had missing parts along with wear and tear. Andy understood how sentimental and important this turntable is to me, he researched for the original parts, purchased them online for me and restored the record player to be practically brand new! I have taken this record player to several record shops over the past 19 years and even tried to take on the project myself but I could never find any help or answers. Andy brought life back to this very very important piece just for the cost of parts (no labor charge) and in just a few weeks! Forever grateful for all his help and patience!
Here you'll find a grizzled ol' vinyl curmudgeon, with a heart of gold. Vintage first run Blue Notes to the latest and greatest fill the shelves. Ripe is the essence of the friendly neighborhood wax shop. Old timers and noobies alike will find their grooves spinning at 33-1/3 (or 45). Fresh new AT tables are available as well, and sometimes a truly special vintage piece of Hi-Fi history may come in looking for a new home. Andy's prices are well researched and fair, but there's always a deal to made. And if you're lucky you might just wind up brushing shoulders with a legend of the Detroit scene.
Huge Selection! High Quality Merchandise! Hard to find Rare Items! Highly Recommended!!! AAA+++++
