THE 2018 GREENVILLE RECORD FAIR is ON, at the Sears Recreation Center in McPherson Park on SATURDAY, SEPT. 22nd, from 10am-4pm!

It’s ON:
HORIZON RECORDS presents the 2018 Record Fair on SATURDAY, SEPT. 22nd from 10am-4pm at The Sears Recreation Center at McPherson Park (100 E. Park Ave.) YES INDEED at last, after much delay, many worried inquiries and wild rumors, we are pleased to confirm that the Greenville Record Fair 2018 is on and returning to the same lovely venue we have enjoyed for last three years. phew.


A music collectors festival:
Over 40 tables of RECORDS, VINYL action and 45’s, CDs. 12″, memorabilia — HOLY COW it’s a music collector’s festival. From the bargain basement steals to hard to find deals the sonic fun is wall to wall. It’s a veritable rainbow coalition of genres: truly different strokes for different folks: hardcore Jazz, hip-hop, RnB and funk crate diggers and sellers, rock of every stripe, rockabilly to psyche to iconic to modern, country, folk, pickin’, reggae, world music. LP’s, 45rpm  7”s, even 78’s. There’ll be film score freaks, blues hounds, world music all laid out all over the place. It’s a beautiful thing to behold.

Meanwhile,  our traditional Fall Record Fair ALL-DAY-STOREWIDE SALE WILL BE IN PROGRESS AT HORIZON! We’ll have more details on that as we get closer to the 22nd, but there will be some sweet discounts, deals and surprises, fo’ sho’.

An ADVENTURE for your ears:
And in the usual tradition at the Record Fair; Tavo will be our DJ, spinning groovy favorites and scintillating rarities for your browsing and sonic pleasure.

A gathering of the tribes:
One thing that’s really great and fun about record shows (and ours of course) is the tribal gathering vibe that is part and parcel of 40 dealers converging from all over the East Coast and followed by a flood of music collectors and record nerds. Lots of these folks only see each other at these shows and everyone reconnects and new friendships happen; the common bond is collecting music. Among certain of these there’s a depth and range of knowledge that is amazing just walking around in the room all day.

The silly side of this vinyl renaissance:
Yes , it seems silly, but records (now called vinyl) are so popular an item and sales are so strong the few pressing plants still operating are going 24 hours/7 days and can’t get everything repressed fast enough. If we’re out of a title please ask; we are glad to call you and hold a copy when it re-stocks. phew. silly, but kinda cool.

So please do mark yer calendars and plan to hit the Greenville Record Fair at The Sears Rec Center from 10AM til 4PM, then visit us here while you’re on this block. Just say yes.

That’s really it, except a quick very important reminder, we don’t stop and we don’t play around.

Much GRATITUDE, y’all!

  • YAMAHA NATURAL SOUND A-700 INTEGRATED STEREO AMPLIFIER
    A classic “hoss” circa 1983/84. 100 watts per channel! Has phono input.
  • BOSE 901 SERIES V SPEAKERS WITH BOSE 901 SERIES V ACTIVE EQUALIZER
    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.
  • SANSUI FR-D35 SEMI-AUTOMATIC DIRECT TURNTABLE
    A new stylus has been installed on the vintage AT cartridge and all features of the table work perfectly!
  • SANSUI SR-525 DIRECT DRIVE TURNTABLE
    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!
  • TASCAM 102 CASSETTE DECK!
    So fresh and so clean! This deck is in great shape and sounds like a champ. Bust out those old bootlegs and mixed tapes.
  • VINTAGE RARE SAE MARK XXXI SOLID STATE STEREO POWER AMPLIFIER WORKS GREAT! SOUNDS GREAT!
    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
