Amazing gem of a store, this is one of the few places I've bought records where everything sounds pristine. Price wise it is not bad but the quality of the records he owns makes it worth it. The place is a bit of a mess which only makes it more of a thrill to look through. The owner is very knowledgeable on what he does and doesn't have. This is a must go to record store in Milwaukee!
I travel for work and like to hunt LP'S in different cities. This store is amazing. My taste in records is big band, vocalists. Musical memories did not disappoint. I blew my budget there but happy to pay what a vintage album is worth. Immaculate vinyl and hidden gems!
Oh my goodness - best selection of quality records (he cleans them) and the kindest store owner. He offered to move boxes out of the way for me, but back any records that didn’t go back in (they’re snug) and stayed after store closing for me and another customer on a Saturday (normally closes at 4). I’d come back in a heartbeat! I walked away with 10 records and thought the prices were very fair. Don’t worry about the space, even though it’s a bit cramped and is a few steps down from the street level, it’s well lit with the window. Come and take a look - and don’t worry, credit is accepted 😉
I've been a customer at Musical Memories for 40 years (1983/4) and the shop is kind of a hidden secret that I'm hesitant to reveal because there's a ton of very rare stuff that I collect and don't want to publicize to much... (grin) Anyway; great selection, top quality and the selections are reasonably priced... I enjoy hearing the baseball games when I drop in during a summer afternoon! The main-guy, Ken, knows exactly what he's doing and has had a hand in shaping my vinyl and tape collecting skills. It's a quiet shop, but I'm always happy after I get home and get to play my recent purchases and recall days when I play the older finds. Very glad to be a customer here!!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐‼️!
An absolute hidden nugget, buried in a lower level downtown brownstone. I almost don't want to review, as to give away all of its treasure. The owner is very helpful and the selection is remarkable!
