Record Collector

We're always buying quality used LPs, CDs, turntables and *music* DVDs! We no longer sell movies - but can't change the category on FB! A PHYSICAL RECORD shop in Iowa City - open since 1982.

Still selling used CDs/cassettes, and used/new vinyl. People ask us is if vinyl's coming back -- we say it never left. Besides our wide range of selections, we also sell local artist's releases.

We are excited to announce that the Englert Theatre has generously offered a ticket giveaway for their October 6th show: Bonnie 'Prince' Billy & Matt Sweeney "Superwolves" with Emmett Kelly and Jonathan Richman with Tommy Larkins.

The show is October 6 at 7:30 and we are drawing for two free tickets to the show on September 30.

Now through September, you may enter the drawing with any purchase.

There are a lot of other great shows coming up around town and at @englerttheatre -- it's awesome to start enjoying live music again!
