Well organized records and CD's with the ability to listen before you buy on stations all over the store. My BF was in here for over an hour and got some great deals!

It was worth the bus ride - easy to stop off on the way to Santa Monica. Collections not as big as Amoeba, but excellent even so and the prices good and staff really very nice.

Super legit old Skool record store. Super nice and helpful staff. This isn't a hipster spot filled with $30 re-issues of Taylor Swift hits. You can find anything here. Totally worth a stop.
