I have some free advice for the owner: Take all of those LP's off the wall behind the counter and place them in a bin marked "collectible records" because when they are behind the counter up on the wall and 5 or 10 LP's deep guess what, I don't have x-ray vision and can't see whats behind the first LP. You may have something up there I want to buy. Keep some of those rare LP's on the wall, one facing and one deep that's all you need up there on display. Next, take all those boxes of LP's that are stacked up all around the front door entrance and move them to the back room or somewhere other than your entryway they just look real bad sitting there. Next up, clear all those boxes and LP's off of the counter top at the front of the store, it looks like shit. Seriously dude, your almost buried in that crap. Then, take all of those common LP's you have priced at $6 and $8, recycle the jackets and use the LP's to shingle your roof or go skeet shooting. Nobody in their right mind is going to pay that much for a common scratchy record anyway. And finally, do something with the front window, dress it up make it look nicer, take some pride in your business, your front window is the face of your business and your face looks real ugly. Come on, you can do better than this. Graham, do yourself a favor and drive 80 minutes west on the 90 and check out Blue Arrow in Cleveland, THAT is how you set up and run a record shop.
Graham's is the only game in town for used LP's as far as I know, but he has some work to do if he wants me to come back. Not recommended until further notice. 613 W. 26th
