Record Stores & Real Vinyl: Where To Buy In Maine (Pt. 1)
A cheap thrill it may be, but there's still nuthin' quite like strolling into one of your favorite spots to rummage through stacks of vintage vinyl. We could do it all weekend long. Visit any one of the following and you're sure to find something you gotta have...
Enterprise Records, 151 Park St., West End, Portland - Supposedly Bob and the crew have never sold a CD since opening back in 1987. We believe it. Found some mint R&B and Soul at non-ridiculous prices, too. [Find out more @ enterpriserecords.net]
The Vinyl Canteen, 22 Central St., Bangor - They've also got new and old-timey stereo equipment including turntables for listening to your faves, and a cafe in house for browsing break time. [Find out more @ firstname.lastname@example.org]
The Record Connection, 252 Main St., Waterville - A really nice variety of genres, reasonably priced. Bring in your old LPs, they would happy to buy 'em. [Find out more @ email@example.com]
Electric Buddhas, 49 Oak St., Portland - Whether it's blues, jazz, folk, classic rock, '80's-retro or indy-weirdness, you're bound to discover a record you've been searching for, all in near-immaculate condition as well. [Find out more @ electricbuddhas.com]
Finestkind Vinyl Haven, 147 Maine St., Brunswick - Occasional off-beat business hours only add to the museum-like charm and well-cataloged stock. If you got the dough, they got the rare first editions. [Find out more @ 207-729-6513)
Bull Moose, 9 locations in Maine and 3 in New Hampshire - Also now the only place (well, in the Portland area anyway) where I can actually find MOJO Magazine, a must-have monthly for all true classic vinyl junkies. [Find out more @ bullmoose.com]
