It’s been a comedy of errors. Back in June we spent weeks working late and put out around 3500 cheapee $2 LPs on the floor, our first cheap section in years comprising many interesting markdowns and surprises… and then we had a big flood about 10 days later. We lost them all but a few hundred and I’d already dumpster’d 2000 just before then. So we added a couple of hundred deuces that were left in the back and then set about refreshing the shelves- adding catalog and oddities and doubles. Tons of them. We have browsable bins now under some of the shelves and have taken our first stab at a semi-legit country section (and folk). You can pull up a chair and it’s the easiest flipping in the shop. Come take a look… there’s lots in there new, cheaper and weirder than we’ve had in several years. Plus a brand new 45rpm party pile of a couple of thousand+ $1 70s/80s lost classics & Every 1’s a winner at Wombleton this summer!
For Record Store Day this Saturday April 16 everything in the shop will be on SALE! All records $20 & up are 15% off; $19 & under are 30% off .
I spent all night taking this damn photo – I hope it comes across; kind of a lame gimmick- sorry!
If you’re planning your first visit to our shop this Saturday you should know that we generally sell all used LPs & 45s- mostly first pressings from the UK & Europe – No Reissues; no RSD product – but a selection unlike ANY other store in the USA. We’ll be celebrating our 6th Record Store Day all weekend; please come by and say hello!
Here’s some interesting stuff we picked up locally this past week. What you see below plus over 200 similar titles. Not our usual sort of thing but worth a look! Lots of much needed David Bowie, Neil Young, Grateful Dead, Eno, Dylan, The Band, Hendrix, Donovan etc etc

As you may have heard we just put out literally thousands of fresh used vinyl LPs, most of which originated from a recent buying trip to England & Holland. The bins are stocked ‘n’ stuffed with many rare gems & we have been refreshing and restocking doubles daily. If you haven’t checked out the new haul since it arrived a few days ago, visit us soon during the Xmas shopping season to find nice gifts you won’t turn up at any other shop in the USA!
NOT PICKED OVER! Even if you missed the big debut of our UK/Euro LPs a multitude of the best titles are in stock and we’re adding vinyl daily to keep the bins full, fresh & interesting. **These photos are all from Sat Dec 15 after 2am**
GIVING TREE! Wombleton’s magic holiday giving tree is stocked with “decent” & attractive 45rpm 7″ singles. Get one FREE with any purchase. These are randomly refreshed as they deplete; All are somewhat desirable titles in great condition.
MYSTERY BAGS! Under the tree are the $3 mystery bag pre-wrapped & ready Xmas presents- themed bundles of LPs (also in great condition); some random, unknown and disturbing records are in those packs. What’s more they are gift-wrapped in attractive class of ’77 McLaren-esque style! These hilarious and intriguing LPs are certain to liven up any stodgy family holiday shindig! You’ll be sure to get a laugh (or groan) from the recipient in most cases. Highly recommended.
CASSETTES! We don’t usually bother photographing our new arrival used cassettes but here they are for a change.
OPEN 7 DAYS! Yes, we will be open for business seven days a week until Xmas and probably the week following, too! Ian & Elden await your visit!
WOMBLETON NITES, We’re expanding our hours thru the holidays so anytime you’re in the area this season, we’re more likely to be open. Give us a ring to make sure if you’re coming after our regular business hours at (213) 422-0069.
WOMBLETON AFTER DARK
THIS HOLIDAY SEASON BUY THE MUSIC LOVER IN YOUR LIFE SOMETHING UNIQUE, WONDERFUL, RARE & SPECIAL THAT YOU WON’T FIND ANYWHERE ELSE IN TOWN!
We’ve returned from another buying trip to England & Holland with big boxes full of hundreds upon hundreds of fabulous original press used vinyl records which will debut at the shop this Thursday evening. We’ve also refreshed the entire store stock and added plenty of attractive “catalog” titles (1000+ pieces) featuring a big collection of 80s metal/hard rock. Stay tuned for more holiday fun at the store this season…

MAY 7th 2015 Euro New Arrivals (belated “RECORD STORE DAY” event)!!!
We took a trip to the UK, Holland and Belgium about a month ago and stocked up on some amazing used records for our annual Record Store Day celebration. And then, as you may have heard, our shipment got stuck in customs for several days and WE MISSED RECORD STORE DAY!!! All for a paltry $100 in duty charges.
So we held onto everything until now in order to give everybody a chance to recover from RSD/IRS liabilities. We’re putting out the fresh stock this Thursday evening, May 7th 2015, and I’m proud to say it’s one of our BEST-EVER VINYL HAULS from our twenty some-odd trips abroad in the past five years. I guess that’s how customs clocked us- oh those ever increasingly record-savvy border cops. God save us all!
See a sampling of the new stuff for yourselves in the photos below… and remember this is only a fraction of what will hit the racks for the first time this Thurs night. Sorry- no holds, we do this in a semi-annoying way our regulars have come to expect. This way everyone who shows up for the debut event gets first crack, nothing personal though! Where?
