Los Angeles, CA

Rockaway Records – Been around since 1979. This would have to be one of my top 5 stores. They have a very knowledgeable and friendly staff. All genres. This place is a bit on the pricey end but they have the goods. Over the years I have picked up some really good stuff here. You never know what you might find here. On my latest visit here, it would appear someone sold their bootleg collection to them because they had a bunch of them, Stones, Floyd, Elton, Zep, Tull and so on. Nice ones. Most were not recent re-issues but originals from the 70’s and 80’s. They have a collectible area in the rear area of the store that is manned by the same couple of guys all the time. They have 45’s and the higher end LP’s back there, you ask and he gets the stuff for you while you look at them on a counter there. Cool collectible stuff for sale all over the walls. None of it cheap. You want it, you pay. If you join their club which costs $10 per year, you do get 10% off all purchases. 2395 Glendale Blvd. Highly recommended.

  1. Hi Do you buy old records. We have complete sets of 78's in original covers and binding. We also have a huge selection of LP's in our garage that is a game room. They're not just in an old car garage. I also have a juke box, that I want to sell and I'll throw in some 45's to go along with the juke box. please respond to Cactuscreator@yahoo.com/ Donna.
