We Are Excited To Announce The LARGEST Dollar Sale in Black Gold History: GOLD DIG #9!!! For those of you who know the deal, get and stay excited. For those of you who don’t know, basically every quarter year or so, we round up a large grouping of records that never made it to the floor for some reason. They could be records we received in multiples, promos, slightly imperfect records, donations, etc. We’ve amassed over 5,000 LPs and 45s this time… we’re not even sure how many records there are here but we know they are taking up a very large space in the back of our store. Expect a ton of sealed records, cut outs, promos, white labels, test pressings, mystery pressings, soul records, jazz records, rock records, indie records, punk, metal, new wave, popular, country, 12″s, blues, classical, the list goes on and on and on. Get here at 10:00 am sharp on October 18th and see what the buzz is all about. Cash only, take as much stuff as you want!

We Are Honored To Have Been Mentioned as one of the BEST RECORD STORES IN NYC in a recent article on Gothamist. P.S. The photo is a little outdated (this place is packed with way more stuff now!) as well as a few specific details about the shop (Have we ever had a taxidermied pigeon?). Check it out regardless… a lot of great shops mentioned and a lot of really great shops were overlooked.

On Friday September, 12th at 1:30 PM, Blaire Alise & The Bombshells with be performing an in-store before their show later that evening at The Bell House. The show is free, please stop in!
