Out of the ordinary – Quite a hike to find this place. Not in the best neighborhood. Sign said they opened at 10, but at 10:15 still not there. Came back the next day, and it was better. Nice selection and staff was friendly.
A vinyl-only shop that's a DJ's dream. – In Short
Owned and operated by a colorful husband-wife combo, this indie vinyl shop -- cramped and cluttered with thousands of LPs (some still in their sleeves) -- is a fun-filled journey into the musical past. CDs are nowhere to be found, but the selection is still rich and varied, featuring an extensive, well-conditioned collection of jazz, classical and vintage rock. For the truly daring, French-vocal and instructional-Polka dance LPs are also ready for the taking.
