MICHELLE MALONE returns to HORIZON RECORDS for a rockin’ full-band in-store show on RECORD FAIR WEEKEND, Saturday, Sept. 22nd at 2pm!

A tradition that goes back to Michelle’s first in-store here in 1989 gets a 2018 update, and we get a treat! She’s still rockin’, shreddin’ on guitar, singing and writing great tunes. Join us as our Record Fair/Storewide Sale day gets even better at 2pm!

You can tell within five seconds of seeing Atlanta’s Michelle Malone onstage that she was never meant to be anywhere else. There are spine-tingling moments in her performances where she’ll flash a sly grin, close her eyes and revel in a certain lyric or melody or riff, seemingly unaware of anything else. Her music, an infectious blend of straight-ahead rock and intimate folk delivered with a gospel level of ecstasy, seems to flow from her raspy shout of a voice as naturally as a river. And that’s before you get to her absolutely lethal slide guitar playing, sharp enough to peel skin and nearly as articulate as a human voice.

That’s what you’re in for right here at Horizon Records on Saturday, Sept. 22nd as Michelle brings her full band to our house at 2pm, right in the midst of our Greenville Record Fair madness down the street at McPherson Park. She’ll almost certainly be playing stuff from her stellar self-produced new album “Slings & Arrows,” but you’re bound to hear some old favorites, as well.

We actually consider this the continuation of a long friendship, since Michelle herself recently posted a vintage pic of her first Horizon in-store back in 1989, sitting on the floor of our old Pleasantburg location wailing away on guitar, and she stopped by a couple of weeks ago to drop off some vinyl copies of “Slings & Arrows!”

“Another Spinal Tap In Store at a super cool record store in Greenville, SC,” she posted with that vintage pic, “Horizon Records, still going strong!…sold the guitar to a friend….the pants are in the attic..the blond chick is still there…waiting patiently on the floor…trying to do this jigsaw puzzle.”

So stop by (after digging through the crates down the street at the Record Fair, of course) and take in the pride of Athens, GA, rockin’ it out in-store style.

We’ll have Slings & Arrows in-stock on CD and vinyl LP, along with some other Michelle-centric goodies!


  • Sansui SPEAKERS SP 2000
    These Sansui SP-2000 speakers from the 70s are some awesome vintage rockers! These big boys have a four way/six driver configuration plus a bass port. They have been tested and sound great.
  • Fisher REC 727 AV Receiver
    This Fisher A/V receiver has phono input, remote and 200 watts! Fire it up bro!
  • Marantz TT1060 semi-automatic turntable
    Here’s a nice entry level table that will severely outperform any newer table even close to it’s price point. The Marantz TT1060 is a semi-automatic table which means the tonearm will return to rest at the end of play.
  • Technics TT SL 1800 turntable
    Technics SL-1800 full manual direct drive turntable, circa 1977. This table is a heavy beast with a very strong motor. A new stylus has been installed on the Stanton cartridge and sounds fantastic. All tonearm features have been set correctly and the stylus tracks at a recommended 3 grams
  • Realistic Lab 430 Direct Drive Turntable
    Very nice inexpensive table with the benefit of direct drive (no belts to change) and auto return. The table has been thoroughly gone through and all features work as they should. A new elliptical stylus has been mounted on the Shure cartridge and balanced correctly.
  • Sonamp 260 from SONANCE
    Soooo nice! This super nice, modestly priced 100 watt per channel power amp has been all checked out and works great. It’s cost effective way to run lots of power!
  • Technics SL-210 full manual turntable
    The table has been thoroughly inspected and gone through with all features working correctly. This is a full manual table, simply turn the table on and move the stylus to the record surface, no auto features to adjust or be concerned with. The new stylus sounds great, is readily available and super affordable. A nice survivor from 1978!
    The essentially crossoverless design gives the 901 an unmistakable coherence, the model’s greatest strength. Its incredibly wide dispersion comes in a close second. The Bose 901s sound great anywhere in the room, After extensive listening, the Bose 901s strike me as being damn good. They have some limitations, but don’t all $1,400 speakers? For that matter, what $10,000 speakers are perfect? They are so smooth and musical.
    A new stylus has been installed on the vintage AT cartridge and all features of the table work perfectly!
    Excellent working and sounding Sansui SR-525 full manual direct drive turntable. A new stylus has been installed, and the cartridge has been properly aligned in the headshell according to Sansui specifications. This is a very heavy table with great Sansui build quality.
  • BOZAK CS4000 mod speakers, omg!! these big-boys ROCK!
    8 tweeters, 1 midrange and 2 woofers per. all original, very clean. extremely rare and VERY AMAZING sound!
  • EPI A110 SPEAKERS: 2-way, classic bookshelf charmers! Sound great, woofers rebuilt like new!
    2-way, classic bookshelf charmers! Sound great, woofers rebuilt like new. Circa 1980’s Epicure Productions vintage feature 8”woofers. Critically acclaimed in their day and still sound good, audiophile delivery without the high dollar price. Full-on ready, great sound, woofers rebuilt like new!
    So fresh and so clean! This deck is in great shape and sounds like a champ. Bust out those old bootlegs and mixed tapes.
    Unit is in really nice physical condition. Recently gone through, tested and checked, all functions have been tested and work great! ready to rock with a pre-amp!
  • ADVENT LAUREATE Mini Tower Speakers
    amazing sound, brilliant natural refined listening experience. woofers on both speakers just completely rebuilt better than new! The Advents, both large and small, sounded pretty good and gave excellent value for the money. The company was one of a long string of companies that descended from the original Acoustic Research (AR). Advents eventually lost their enormous popularity and nearly faded away. International Jensen, a company based in the Chicago suburbs, rescued Advent and resurrected it. The Advent model we tested deserves a Ph.D. Advent appropriately names it the Laureate. The Laureate overwhelmed my skepticism that a modestly priced floor-standing loudspeaker could deliver good sound
    A classic “hoss” circa 1983/84. 100 watts per channel! Has phono input.
  • Marantz REC SR 225
    This super vintage budget receiver is the perfect starter unit for someone wanting to explore the world of hi fidelity sounds. It’s been all checked out and has a clean bill of health; and with phono input so it’s good to go with any classic turntable.
  • Polk Audio T15 Bookshelf Speakers, 2 way plus bass port
    You can enlarge your sound while shrinking the speakers with a reliable bookshelf system. The Polk Audio T15 speakers can blend into the background while delivering impressive tone quality. It can be a superior system that offers balanced drivers and tweeters for a wide response with low distortion.
