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.

Anyone have some favorite spots in Chicago that have some deep crates but tend toward the lower side of things when it comes to prices? I have some family there for the next few days and asked them to buy me some vinyl, I figured I could tell them where to go to make it a little easier.

 

Edit: Or I could just google it...

Jazz Record Mart is a nice spot.

Reckless Records is a staple.

 

Where is your family staying?

There are a lot of shops... you can really go out of your way... which sucks if you have limited time.

Tram's is great, killer Pho there!  Lots of good food spots popping up lately for sure.  Someone recently dropped a hip hop collection off at one of the Half Priced books here and I've been picking away at it too.  Are you out in Ohio?

Good looks man! Apparently their hotel is just around the block from Jazz Record Mart so I'm sending 'em that way tomorrow. Can't wait to see what they find...
