Hey. I am bored here eating Fruit Loops and watching the Cleveland Show...

What are your favorite record stores? What cities are they located in?

I like understanding where people go(names of the shop-names are cool) and how far they WILL travel to that one mom n' pop record shop 2 hours away just to find that rare Crimpshrine record...I mean their favorite record.

 

This topic may be a fail. Veer off to another topic. Whatever. But yah...Just got off work and chillin' trying to get a feel of this message board. I own quite a few LPs from this label, so  it's not like I am just some weirdo who happened to fall onto this site.

 

Favorite Record stores:

Exclusive Company (Green Bay, Appleton, and Oshkosh area in WI)

Criminal Records (always a pleasure to go there in Lil 5 points--ATL )

Flipville Records (Milwaukee, WI)--fun to dig through

Bullseye Records (Milwaukee, WI)

WAX 'N FAX (I swear to god best place to really dig through--also in lil 5)

 

I am going to L.A. sometime this summer. There better be some good shops--wait, do I need to even doubt there being good record shops? I am very excited!

360 Vinyl in Portland, OR is the best record shop I've visited, owner is awesome and carries a fantastic selection of hip hop/etc. We actually did a video with him a little while back --

 

 

Def check out the shop if you're in the Portland area!

 

Visited Gramaphone Records while in Chicago earlier this month, also a pretty great shop (though a bit on the pricey side).

I work a few blocks from 360 and hit it all the time, best in Portland is Crossroads Music. If you're in Portland looking for records that's where you gotta go.

People's Records in Arcata, CA. That's where I get most of my stuff. I used to go to another one in my town but they don't buy much and are really behind on releases. The owner of people's is a big fan of the madlib. I told him I was a fanboy and he said he was too. And when I venture to the bay area I always visit Amoeba music and sometimes Rasputin.

Wax Trax is the Mecca of vinyl out here in Denver huge used selection and amazing prices. Twist & Shout is massive but expensive as all living hell, I only fuck with the hip hop section when I'm in there. There's a place down the street from JF. called Black & Read and they have a pretty wide range of titles for pretty fair prices. There's a couple of these Angelo's stores here as well but they just throw everything together without really organizing anything and their prices are a little too expensive for the quality and the fact that nothing is easily accessible.
