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!

Thurs May 7th, 8pm – EURO & UK NEW ARRIVALS 1000+ FRESH USED LPS & 45s (Rescheduled RSD event)

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? Wombleton Records, 5123 York Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90042 USA

Some of these 45s may have already sold, but everything else is gonna be there for certain at opening on Thurs.
