The Vinyl Resting Place, Portland Oregon
Open – 8332 N. Lombard Street Portland Oregon 97203
The Vinyl Resting Place is another one of the stores I visited on my trip to Oregon in the summer of 2014. Founded in 1997, it’s a smaller store in Portland’s St. John’s district, with a good selection of rock, jazz and blues (especially jazz), as well as some old ‘collectors’ items from the 60s and late 50s. Definitely worth a visit. It too was featured in the handy guide to Portland’s record stores. Love the name.

While you’re there, you may want to check out the nearby St. John’s Bridge – a suspension bridge that spans the Willamette river. Don’t forget to go to Cathedral Park to see the gothic arches that support the bridge.

If that wetted (is that a word) you appetite (that is a word), here’s a video from Man on the Street’s Devon Shirley of things to do in St. John’s with a tour of the Vinyl Resting Place that starts at 1:21 (if you can’t wait that long).
By the way, I’m not fond of Rush either.
