Local Record Stores. Keeping the Vinyl Record Industry Alive.

Well, I finally found a good record store in my town. There are so many places that have some records, but those are in pretty bad shape, and there’s not a lot to choose from.

Checkered Records, however, was exactly what I was looking for. They don’t have a website, and are only open Thursday, Friday and Saturdays from 11:00 to 5:00. I figure that he must have a good customer base to only be open three days a week. The guy that owns the place seems to be a pretty good guy, though I didn’t get a chance to talk to him as there was a decent amount of people for a small record shop.

I was impressed with some of the albums he had. There was a number of picture vinyl, especially from Alice Cooper. He had a real range of styles too. Jazz, funk, soul, rock, metal just about everything. Not so much progressive metal, but not a lot of people carry that.

You can find some good stuff online, albums no one else has, but sometimes you just need to go and touch and see them before you buy. If you find a good record shop in your area, don’t keep it to yourself, let everyone know.
