Best used record store we visited in Nashville. Great 90s finds. Friendly staff. Clean and well organized. Easy parking. Lovely. From one record store to another, we love Phonoluxe.
Phonoluxe Records is a Nashville treasure. It's like the Rolling Stones of used music stores having been in the same location for over 30 years. Their staff is THE MOST knowledgable in the Music City and it's the place to go if you are looking for that obscure title no one else in town has for sale. It literally has something for EVERYONE. Jeff, Bill, Danny are all great folks and adding Scott and Tammy in recent times just upped the level of an already great staff. BTW the guy with the British accent is Mike the owner and he's one of the nicest and coolest people in town! Also he is THE authority on collectible 45s and vinyl in general. 10 STARS! (I can only give you 5).
Treasure trove of cds, vinyl,DVDs, and collectables. The people who run it are helpful and knowledgeable. No "hipper than thou" attitudes and great prices!
Great selection, and well organized even though it is packed to the point of being overwhelming the first time. Excellent service. Unfortunately, they apparently don't listen to the albums before pricing them, although visually all were clean. They do have a turntable set up that you can use. We should have, because a few expensive used albums were not good pressings and are going into the trade-in stack (some were excellent.) It hurts to pay $40 for an album that isn't listenable, and can't be returned as a new one could (or can they?). Our fault for not allowing enough time to listen to all the ones we bought (or at least the over $20 ones.) Or we could have bought fewer so we had time. Or.... They could listen and audibly grade the unsealed records that they charge a premium for. Some online retailers reliably do this, and it avoids disappointment and wasted money. In summary, we will be back. But will buy fewer and listen to all unsealed ones.
Love this place. The staff is very knowledgeable. It's quite a bit more expensive than the other record shops I used to shop at before moving to Nashville (can't speak in comparison to Nashville) but you will come across a lot more albums worth collecting here. So you pay a bit of a premium for all the work the shop does to find lots of quality vinyl, but I think it's worth it.
