I did pretty well at Jive Time this time around and the stuff I got was reasonably priced.
Tacoma on 6th Ave. has been my go to for a while now with free parking (as opposed to car hating Seattle) and plenty of good food and drink options in addition. Hi-Voltage Records and Turntable Treasures are just a few blocks apart. Drastic Plastic is also close but I just didn't feel it the one time I was there.
Both are good places. I've spent many hours in both. Drastic Plastic didn't do too much for me either. There used to be a couple others but I don't know anymore about what's out there.
New store opening up in Lower Queen Anne soon, run buy a couple guys from Everyday Music.
I love Daybreak, RJ is the man. My other favorite is Easy Street they carry some very cool labels including a lot of soul jazz and mofi stuff in addition to an awesome used selection. I used to play West Seattle Golf Club every Sunday morning and hit Easy Street on the way back. Unfortunately the bridge failure has probably ruined that, haven't been out that way since.
What is this bridge failure? I was able to get to Easy Street very easily via bus when I was in Seattle three weeks ago.
Ah. So the car bridge to west Seattle is closed. Huge problem. There’s a lower bridge that’s busses only that’s open still.
And right next to Dick’s Drive-in.
That explains it, thanks.
Fat Cat Records is also in that neighborhood.
Big fan of Fat Cat. The owner and his son are very cool. Biggest problem is the extremely slow turnover of stock, but as a place to visit every 3-4 months it's great.
