I've gone into the Record Collector on several occasions looking for some really obscure artists to gift friends and the owner comes through every time. On one trip all I could vaguely remember was the album cover and when I described it to him he knew who I was talking about. Everyone is super friendly, the records are always in... More

We like to support musicians and have seen a variety is shows and found many new artists that we enjoy. John and Sue who own the business are a great couple. Check out the web site to see what shows... More

Very nostalgic and rustic. Pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity of their stock. I surprised my date since he is a DJ and is very much into VINYL...he was truly like a child-in-a-candy-store. 😊👍🏽 there are hundreds and hundreds more vinyl which aren't visible in the front of the shop. Definitely for folks of ALL ages 😍 On Friday... More
