RSD 2016 crowd

We got some amazing love from you, our customers and friends, and some unexpected but quite welcome love from Pearl Jam (both in-store and onstage at Bon Secours Wellness Arena) and Rosanne Cash (ditto, at the Peace Center).

Miss Cash, Mr. Leventhal and staff.

We’re floored, honored, elated and exhausted. Same time next year?



Yep, we sure did get clobbered on Saturday (and Sunday), but don’t think we haven’t still got some good Record Store Day exclusives left in stock.

We’ve still got goodies by SUPERCHUNK, FLEETWOOD MAC, MUDDY WATERS, LIL’ WAYNE, LESTER YOUNG, & JOHN RENBOURN, not to mention compilations of vintage sleaze-rock (Los Alamos Grind). 60’s garage-rock (Nuggets: Hallucinations), psychedelic samba (The Rough Guide To Psychedelic Samba), and the lost rock & roll of Cambodia (Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten), among many other titles.

  • 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. […]

    2-way, classic bookshelf charmers! Sound great, woofers rebuilt like new. Circa 1980’s Epicure Productions vintage feature 8”woofers.

  • 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 […]

  • 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! […]
    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. […]
  • Polk Audio T15 Bookshelf Speakers, 2 way plus bass port
