Best Place to Buy Vinyl St. Louis 2007 - Record Exchange
It'd be easy to give this award to Record Exchange based on sheer volume alone. The store holds untold stacks of wax LPs cram the racks and spill out from every cranny, and it's piled shoulder-high in corners and storerooms. But it's quality as well as quantity that makes a great record store, and Record Exchange offers that as well. We defy you to leave the store without some twelve-inch treasure in your hand, either from the countless used records or the recently added selection of new, freshly pressed vinyl. For the full record-geek experience, head upstairs to the 45 rpm loft, where rock, soul and country seven-inches await your perusal. Whether it's rare colored-vinyl singles or old, scratchy 78s, no other store caters to the crate diggers, vinyl junkies and casual music fans as well or as fully as Record Exchange.
