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