What a great shop. They had the finest collection of vinyl I've ever seen, ranging from mainstream to underground. Not the largest store but perhaps the best?The neighborhood is as good as it gets - I can't wait to come back for some impulse purchases.
Small space with a decent selection. Sort of a mixed bag, price-wise: some records are priced pretty well, while others are marked up quite a bit. I have found a few gems in here, and pop in from time to time. Not the best spot around, but worth popping in every once in a while because they do come through occasionally.
You don’t mess With Zorro
We’ve never been treated so arrogantly and made to feel so unwelcome.Why open a shop to the public if you hire anti-social creatures to run it..Asked to wear a mask, in Feb 2023!! Ok we did.We asked to try listening to a used vinyl, answer was a short “ no! this is not a listening station” although there was some sort of home recorded music of a lady’s screams as she was being stepped on her toes by an ogre playing already. The audacity, the hipocrisy, condescending individual..unbelievable. As if that music was playing for customer-repellant purposes.
Remember those record stores in the mall? This is that, except moderately hipper. So you'll find plenty of Strokes and Taylor Swift and what not, but you won't find anything remotely surprising. Perfect for Williamsburg, actually.
Collection was small, but had some gems (including two Klaus Nomi records). Had a *really* negative experience with the person working the counter, who helpfully told my friend and I that a lower shelf of records was just extra stock, not to be touched.We still looked (no touching!) at that shelf though, as it was easier to read the record spines. Noticing that, though, she barked at us to not pull anything from lower shelf. It was really aggressive.I hope she figures out soon that most of the Lana Del Rey discography was down there and NOT in the official display shelving (which included nothing by that artist). Silly reason to lose customers. We left and definitely won't be coming back :-/
