Location could be an issue. It's such a non-descript store front that you have no idea it's a commercial business open to the public. Just kinda blends in with the other studios, warehouses, whatever they are, that occupy the building. Fair selection of about 90% used material. Did see one Coltrane Impulse release that was priced at $100 and that seemed incredibly far-fetched. Did find a nice copy of Dave Ray's "Fine Soft Land" for $1 so I was happy with that. It's nice that it's in the neighborhood and I wish him luck and hope he can have a decent run. That however may be difficult with the amount of options that are currently available.
If you need a re-issue of "More Songs About Buildings and Food" they had like 75 of them for some reason.
they ordered 500 copies of the bowie RSD release. 500. idk if the dude has funny money or what.
the coltrane is just one of many. there's also a ziggy stardust for 75 (he said "its an original and that was the price before he died" lmao), five sealed 4th press replacements "stink"s for 80 dollars, otis redding dictionary of soul for 55, sin 34 s/t LP for 80, etc. i scoff out loud going through the bins
I no longer have the patience to hit up record stores and troll around for bargains and hidden gems. I don't even miss it anymore. Which isn't to say I didn't really love doing it, but that it doesn't fill a need for me so much anymore.
Now when I hit stores I am usually looking for something specific. Given this, I totally hate the rising vinyl prices---both new and used. I just don't have the capacity to look around for a good deal. It all seems expensive to me now.
