The shop still looks about the same as it did a year ago. Friendly staff. A mixed bag with regards to prices. They must be rather proud of their inventory with some of the prices I saw. $24.99 for a Canadian pressing of Bowie "Changes One" or $24.99 for a domestic Pink Floyd "The Wall"?
Promos are generally $10 and imports or scarce (or not so scarce) punk LP's are $24.99....kinda steep. The rest are in the $4.99 - $7.99 range. I did buy a Cars 12" UK pressing. 2887 22nd Ave. Still highly recommended.

So.....check this dude out, he is literally up to his earlobes in records. Are you kidding me? He may be the king of common LP hoarders. And I thought Banana's was proud of their records, this guy IS banana's! Can I interest you in a garden variety Kiss "Alive" LP for $49.99? Yea, he's got lots of crazy prices and lots of beat up common LP's. The owner of this shop should throw a party and send invites to the following:
The owner of Vinyl Records in Vancouver.
Owner of River Records in Memphis.
Owner of Been Around Records in Little Rock.
Get them all together and let's have a little hoarding intervention party.
Ridiculous. Have a look at the front counter here, the guy is buried, can you see him? I swear he's there, behind all those LP's somewhere. Unreal. Just about every spot in the shop have LP's piled up, every isle even the CD isles are stacked up with LP's on the floor. Holy shit, I couldn't believe it, I had a look around flipped through some records for about 10 minutes, snapped a few shots and got the hell out of there before I was swallowed by an LP sinkhole. Dude you need help. Recommended for entertainment purposes only. 6712 Central Ave.
