House of Records Eugene Oregon
Open – 258 E. 13th Ave., Eugene Oregon 97401
Once I saw a picture of it on the Internet, I knew I had to go. A blue house filled with records. My sister had a wedding (her oldest son) and so we made a slight detour to this Eugene institution, in business since 1971, Seems Oregon is the land of record stores. Dig the cool record dividers. A bit of everything in the store, both new and used. Got a nice copy of the original Belle & Sebastian The Life Pursuit, and a reissue of Of Montreal The Gay Parade (quite a good record).
Here’s an interview with store clerks describing the store that appearing in Light in the Attic in 2011.
And here’s a video on YouTube titled House of Records’ Greg Sutherland on why vinyl came back from 2015 interview Mr. Sutherland on the story and its history, with more pictures of what the store has to offer.
