  • This place will bring back so many memories if you are 40+. My wife had to remind me of our travel budget because I was going crazy over the oldies in CD's & records that I wanted for my collection...

  • Went in a mission to find some rare soul and funk by the Meters. I found exactly what I was looking for. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They had albums CDs cool T shirts. You can pick up some unique items here. Top Notch!
  • Old-school vinyl and CD shop staffed by knowledgeable and friendly folks. Start at the listening station up front -- do not pet the cat -- then proceed to the racks. Check out the great T-shirts. Best selection of local and Louisiana music anywhere. A must when in New Orleans.
  • Loved the variety of the store and the friendliness of the staff. Sometimes I go to record stores and feel very unwelcome by the judgy staff, this one gave me the opposite vibes. Also there’s a cute cat walking around the store
  • Stumbled on this gem as we were walking along Frenchman St. What a great find! Great selection of new and used vinyls and posters. The owners/staff were extremely helpful and friendly - as a vinyl collector I have to say, this is rare. I asked them about a vinyl my daughter was interested in purchasing and they were kind enough to play it for her as we shopped. If you’re looking for a well stocked location with reasonable prices, this place is a must visit.
  • Love the listening stations set up for new CDs. Live music is also great when you can catch it. Some pretty bizarro stuff on LP in boxes too, if you look!
