    Yeah, it was a pretty good store. Some of the vinyl they had was so clean, it looked like the day it was pressed. He had a lot of stuff on consignment, and near mint German pressings were $5.

    Took my 15 year old daughter there the other night, and she was thrilled that a Yellowcard CD she (actually, I) bought for $5 was autographed by the band! I told her you only find those in an independent store...

    Looks like it might be gone. Stopped by yesterday but there was a "we've moved" sign in the window, but I could not seem to find the "new" location.

    ok, simple question....what store has the current best selection of used vinyl near Springfield? NO cd's, just used vinyl. I can probably hit just one store

    trying to consolidate information about CT record stores

    I am determined to take a CT road trip at some point this year.
    I already love Replay Records and Redscroll Records, but I would like to visit some others.
    I hope this helps others who are looking to do the same. :righton:

    Can anyone add, revise (as in, new address or website) or subtract information (as in, store closed) to this list?

    I don't believe this place is there anymore. I went by there this past winter and it was closed up with a for lease sign on it.

    Thanks Kevin, I am sorry to hear that.
    I have been wanting to visit that store for years, but since it is almost at the border of Massachusetts, I have not made the time to do it. :(

    If anyone finds out, if this store reopens in another location, let us all know!
