Retaining the location (and much of the stock) of former Chicago institution Reckless Records, collectors Jesa Espinoza and Rosemary Villaseñor run this West Town shop. Inside, you'll find a wall covered in rare records—including psych, punk, garage, krautrock and private press LPs—and shelves filled with used albums, which make up about three-quarters of Joyride's offerings. Swing by to browse the new arrivals and, if you're lucky, you may see some local garage rockers or a DJ performing live.
