Record Exchange –  8642 Colesville Rd., Silver Spring Md. 20910  (Washington D.C.)
Open

Nice store run by a nice guy.  This is one of their two locations (the other is in Frederick) and a bit on the smaller side.  But their record divider –  “Budget Vinyl – The Thrill of the Hunt” is priceless.  In all my travels, I’ve never seen anyone use that one before.  And no, that’s not a picture of a Cramps record I bought at the store, but artwork the store commissioned from the very same artist.  Worthy of a visit for the floor alone.

The Record Collector is not the only record store in Silver Springs.  You can also visit Joe’s Record Paradise – a short walk away, and Roadhouse Oldies.   Why Silver Spring Is A Destination For Lovers Of Vinyl  published in Wamu.org (for American University’s radio station wamu 88.5) in April 2014 gives more information on all three stores.
