As soon as you walk into this 10-year-old cozy record spot, owner Neal Becton’s love for vinyl is apparent. The bright orange walls are covered with music posters and flyers he’s collected over his lifetime. You’ll find used records of all different genres, with an emphasis on international music, jazz, soul, hip-hop and dance. In just one trip, you might unearth a rare collectible record, score some sweet deals perusing through the dollar bins, nab some new releases or go old school with CDs and cassettes.
