Order Your Favorites!

Our brick and mortar store is closed for now but you can still order your favorite music right to your door.

Groovy Tuesdays at Elixir!

As we partner with Elixir Andersonville (1509 W. Balmoral), Rattleback Records’ very own DJ Tuff ‘N’ Such will curate a playlist of music brought to you on vinyl — in living stereo on actual turntables!


Join us for some great music and cocktails.

Serving Andersonville

We buy and sell all media.

If you’re looking to unload your old treasures, let us help you find good homes for them.

We will pay you cash for your used records, CDs, cassette tapes, and DVDs. Contact us to set up an appointment!

Rattleback Records is a unique music store offering a myriad selection of new and used vinyl, CDs, cassettes, movies and more.

You’ll also find everything you need to accessorize your music lounge, including vintage barware, books, posters and art prints. Our stock is continually changing, so be sure to shop our store early and often so as not to miss out on that hidden gem you’ve been searching for; or the one you didn’t even know you needed until you saw it!

Rattleback Records is the culmination of a lifelong love of music and vintage treasures. Be sure to stop in to the store to chat about your favorite artist, whether it’s the Grateful Dead, the Dead Kennedys, or Dead Can Dance. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Ordering Music: Curbside Pickup

We now have the ability to send you an invoice via email that you can pay online safely and securely. We can also call you to process credit card payment by phone if you’d prefer.

If doing curbside pickup, please show up on either Friday or Saturday between 10-2, knock on our door, or pull up in your car outside, and we will pass your bagged order to you safely; social distancing style.
