Half a million records, mostly classical and Jazz. If there is something specific you are looking for, ask the owner... I asked for 6 records, he was 5/6.

A lot of people say the owner is displeasurable, to which I can not argue to the contrary. Unless you’re hunting for something that he deems worthy, then he most likely will be judgmental. Not a very open minded person. Many record store owners are experts within their fields, and there is a lot to learn from them... unfortunately most times they don’t care to learn from us.

The sixth record I asked for which he didn’t have, I’m sure he would have loved it. His loss, I suppose, but as he says “you can’t listen to all the music in the world.”

The digging continues...
