In 1994, at the height of the CD era, Dan Cook decided to open a store catering to other vinyl collectors like himself in New York City’s East Village. People told him he was crazy, record stores were a dying breed…but he thought vinyl was a superior format and enough people agreed that the store survived and flourished. The store carried a wide range of genres from psych to hip-hop to country to jazz and more. Thousands and thousands of records came and went, and people from all over the world made a point of stopping in.
After 18 years in it’s original location, the store was moved to the Northeast side of Los Angeles, where it resided on York Blvd in Highland Park for two years.
Now in our 3rd, and largest location on the neighboring street of 5810 N. Figueroa, things are bigger and better than ever.
