My wife loved the records–thanks for the great recommendations! She’s had Sarah Vaughan on non-stop. Let’s keep doing this on the monthly basis

Love the selections this month! It’s so funny–our 3 year old is obsessed with the Pixar movie Cars and we have it on repeat with Alexa. The thing is, if you don’t say the word “soundtrack” you get the Gary Numan song, so we never get to listen to it because it’s not the “right one” according to her. We’re glad to see that song on the 80’s album!

I was really happy with the records; they were selections that I wouldn’t probably have sought out and I enjoyed both of them, which was exactly the goal.
— Doug S.
The Howlin Wolf was just the sort of thing I was looking for! I also really appreciated that this has given me a reason to look up the artists and find out more about them and links they had to other artists; this was a fun rabbit hole to go down.
— Doug S.
A gem of a store. They have a good selection and the owners and staff are knowledgeable, helpful and nice. Rattleback is just a perfect little record shop.
— Doug S.
Great store! Helped a lot with giving me and my partner advice on what record player to buy and ended up buying their record player and speaker combo which was a great deal. Also loved how excited the workers are in talking about records!
— Jen R.
The selection is killer and the staff beyond welcoming and friendly, plus they’re incredibly knowledgeable. Every time I stop in I’m guaranteed to have a great conversation about new tunes, good shows, and just music in general. Rattleback is a gem.

This place rules, owner is a gem, will help with anything you need. While they were closed they curated records for myself and a friend so we could maintain our budget record nights.
— Warren D.
Excellent selection of used/new Vinyls, CDs, tapes, and even books and DVDs! The staff is very welcoming and helpful. Great addition to our neighborhood!
