Classic Rock Record and CD Stores

I regularly receive inquiries about where to find the classic songs and albums on my page. Here are a few places you might try. Most of these stores carry new and used stock. Since most vinyl albums have been out of print for a number of years, you may only be able to find a used copy. Be sure to check if the item is new or used and the condition of the item.

Although I have personally shopped at many of these stores, I make no warranty concerning the service you may (or may not) receive. This information is put here strictly for your reference. None of the stores listed have paid me for advertising or listing them on this page. (I know, I should be charging them. But, hey, I'm a nice guy.)

Good luck and happy hunting!

I have been shopping at this store for over 15 years now. They carry a wide range of vinyl albums and CDs at reasonable prices. They also carry many obscure classic rock albums that are only available on import CDs. (Yes, these are legitimate releases that are available only from other countries.) They also do mail order, so give them a call to see if they have that classic rock song you have been looking for. Be sure to ask for Bill.

You can contact Bill at the following e-mail address:

Each of these albums were in excellent condition.

I discovered this store in the summer of 1997 when I visited Wilkes-Barre for the first time. They carry both vinyl albums and CDs at reasonable prices. The owner of the store, Jay, just e-mailed me with the following information:

"For your information, we do mail order. We also have email (obviously!) and feel free to put my email address on your page, too. We recently moved up the street from our old location. We have expanded our store and now have a separate room called the Record Library which contains vinyl albums and 45s. Want lists are welcome. Thanks for the plug. I hope I can help other customers like you."
