  • Love, love, love this place!!!! Every time I go to L.A. I stop here a couple of times. This is a very large facility. Don't expect to get in and out. We spend hours there and we still don't see everything. There's great vinyl, cd's, 8 track, cassettes, movies, posters, t-shirts, buttons, electronics and so much more!!!!! If you're from out of town they will ship your items home for you. This is a huge help. The shipping is cheap. They don't make anything off of it! It's smart of them to do because we could shop all we wanted to and not worry about our luggage being too heavy or how to get it back. There's lot eating establishments near by so you could take a break and come back. You do have leave big bags or backpacks at the door.
  • Amazing store, gives any music fan a kid in a candy store feeling. Records and such you won't find anywhere else, fair prices and great inventory overall. Good customer service, must visit for any local or tourist.
  • Go there every year for my birthday. I go with a game plan. Walk in door and plan gone. I could be lost for days in there. Love this place
  • Always a fun time looking through the used albums and DVDs. They have a lot of books about the music business. Our scene( punk,goth,glam, metal). They have biography's, ...etc from artists who are in all kinds of different genres of music, mediums,& or photographers too. I could spend a couple hours sitting on the floor reading. THEY HAVE LIVE BANDS TOO/ FREE !!!. 😎
  • If you are a melomaniac, please, reserve yourself hours to enjoy this music paradise. The store is big enough to keep there looking for bargains per hours. It is a classic, an icon. Do not forget to buy one of their classic bags, and to smile to the nice employees.
