Are you a collector of vinyl records looking for a new source of high-quality new and used records? Or new to music on vinyl and want to learn what all the buzz is about?
Our Garden City location is RI's newest resource for high quality music on vinyl! Ok, well it's been a year. But still today people happen upon our vinyl department and are thrilled to discover the quality and assortment of music we have in store. It takes them back to the 'good ole days' when listening to music was a multi-sensory experience, not just a download. From the smell of a fresh pressed record, the feel of slipping it out of its sleeve, to hearing those first crackles turning to sweet, sweet music - there's nothing like it. Now, sure there are some skeptics out there that just don't see the value of crates of old (and new) records. So, we suggest a taste test, if you will. Download an mp3 file of your favorite song. Listen to it through your headphones. Now, put the needle on the record of that same song. There's no doubt of the distinct difference in sound quality and listening experience.
Whether 70's post-grunge is your thing or if you're on the hunt for the holy grail of jazz (Miles Davis/Kind of Blue/original pressing), come finger through our carefully curated, ever-changing, eclectic inventory geared toward new collectors and audiophiles alike. You're bound to find something to add to/start your collection.
Not only do we offer new and high-quality used vinyl, but we also BUY vinyl. Inherit someone's old record collection? Have your own stockpile collecting dust in the basement? If you have records you want to sell, give us a call. We are always looking for good quality albums in all genres. In-store appointments on nights and weekends. Home visits for larger collections.
