Rich Rosen is a legend in the Vegas vinyl community. He hauled his enormous record collection west from Pennsylvania in 1999 and it has only grown (to an estimated 500,000) in the ensuing years, unencumbered by the digital revolution and thriving during the vinyl revival. Rosen is also well-known for how he runs his store, inquiring customers about their shopping needs as soon as they enter, directing them to the appropriate sections in the labyrinthian, house-like outlet and referring to market prices for the tag-less albums once it’s time to settle up. As such, prices average around $50, but there’s a cheaper section for the titles of which Rosen has multiple quantities, and trust us—if it’s on your used-vinyl wish list, you’ll find it here (along with CDs, books and vintage stereo equipment). It’s why the city’s most obsessive vinyl hounds have this collector’s paradise on speed dial. Even world-renowned artist Elton John is a loyal customer.
