Hungry Ear is a great record store that has a fantastic selection of used records and often has live music and limited release records on offer.
The best record store on Oahu! Oh wait it’s the only record store on Oahu. 4 stars for that alone! No honestly, this place is great and has a decent used vinyl section; almost exclusively 70-80’s stuff but have found some good things. Their selection of new LP’s is less than adventurous, and when i asked if they’d consider stocking an album that was soon to be released i was met with a shrug.
I've been to their old location on King Street and used to go there every time I was in Honolulu. They have a vinyl cleaning machine, so the vinyl they sell is usually in excellent shape. I have found several albums I had been searching for which were in great shape, and there were even a few hidden gems hidden amongst the "as is" $1 bargain bin as well. The staff are knowledgeable and everyone is friendly, and they are a proud sponsor of the annual Hawaii Record Fair as well.
Good mix of material and friendly staff. Check it out.
Great store one of only two stores on island that sell classic vinyl records.
