Joe’s Record Paradise

Open –  8700 Georgia Ave., Silver Springs Md  20910
(just outside of Washington D.C., which you can reach by Metro)

On a recent trip to Washington D.C., I payed a visit to the new home of Joe’s Record Paradise.
The store recently reopened in the basement of an office building at 8700 Georgia Ave., and as you can see from the pictures below, is full of used records of all genres.  They were sampling some tasty old soul/blues while I was there.

Here are some photos of their prior location, which (on the inside) was painted a lovely fuscia.

Here’s a recent article from the Washington Post At Joe’s Record Paradise The Music Goes Round and Round that describes the store’s latest move.  It features a picture of the store’s current owner, Johnson Lee, son of the original Joe, Joe Lee.
