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!

Check it out regardless… a lot of great shops mentioned and a lot of really great shops were overlooked.
