Come visit El Suprimo Records today! Although on the smaller side, this old school style record shop is crammed with used records among other things: LP’s, 45’s & 78’s, cassettes, 8-tracks, DVD, VHS, CD’s, books, vintage stereo equipment, all kinds of turntables, instruments, memorabilia, and pop-culture Kitsch. I noticed there was a lot of jazz, funk, soul, and 60s/70s rock compared to other genres. However, whatever you’re looking for you will probably find. Most of the records are used but they’re still in good condition and I have even found original pressings here. In addition, the prices of the records are generously marked down if they have any imperfections, so you are getting your money’s worth.

Jack Moore, the owner, and genuine musical connoisseur of what seems like all genres, has accumulated an abundant and rather eclectic collection of music. His prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is cool and charming- despite the store’s location in the basement under a comic book shop. If you are uncertain about a record you can spin them in a listening station in the back of the store. Jack has curated a truly awesome collection that’s very enjoyable to dig through and his intense knowledge of all music adds to the experience of visiting this store.
