Record Exchange In St. Louis

Hey vinyl lovers. I thought I would share this. This one of the stores that is a about a two hour drive from my house. I drove to St. Louis today for a record show and stopped by here afterwards. Just thought I would share this great store with you.

The store is kind of in the shape of an “L”. The 45rpm room upstairs was closed off. Not sure why.

    They won't let you link it, of course, but, if you go to recordexchangestl website, under about, it tells you. I lived in South St. Louis back when it was still a library. Regardless, it's a great record store, I'm glad you put this video up.

    I thought it was an old court house?

  5. OldRadioAl says:

    This is an old library building. Up those stairs, there is a room just full of 45's, all categorized.

    Man, I need to go there, even though I can't. I bet this is the only record store in the world that's this massive and that sells everything possible.

  7. mrhoffame says:

    Yeah. They have about 4 or 5 milk crates full.

  8. The1970sInfatuate says:

    Does this place sell 8-track tapes? It looks huge enough to carry anything.

  9. The1970sInfatuate says:

    MASSIVE STORE! Wish I had a record store that huge by my place. The ones nearby are tiny.

    @LongLostLPMan The R&B section is pretty good but there is another store nearby called Vintage Vinyl that has a much better R&B section. I have always said that this store is the home of the $6-$15 rock/R&B lps. They have tons of those $10 lps you just can't seem to find for the past 2 years lol. The other two stores in the area seem to have more rare stuff and new vinyl. For about 4 months this guy had so much overstock that he had everything in the store 50% off! I stocked up lol!

    @Kiwizig ROADTRIP LOL!

    @mrhoffame Strangely enough. I've never been to a concert up here. My oldest teen just saw Ozzy up here on Valentine's Day. Was it at The Mark or what is now the I Wireless Center? The last great concert I went to was in St. Louis at The Pageant which is about a block or so down the street from Vintage Vinyl. Got my Wrath Lamb Of God LP signed at the store and saw them headline ; Municipal Waste, As I Lay Dying, God Forbid, Children Of Bodom. It was Badass.

    Looks like you could spend hours in that shop!! There are no record shops where I live the closest would be 4 hours away which is why I do all my buying online!

  15. mrhoffame says:

    @stringchild1 Moline huh? I have driven up there a time or two. You guys get all kind of great concerts there. Last one I saw was Godsmack!

  16. mrhoffame says:

    @dereckvon Yeah, there are three great store in this area. All are about 10 minutes from each other. This one (Record Exchange), Euclid (whom has a better selection of new vinyl and Jazz), and one called Vintage Vinyl which is probably the best overall store.

  17. dereckvon says:

    Gawd, this store is a must visit! I've heard about Euclid but have yet to visit. This video is making quite an impression.

    @LongLostLPMan So cool to hear that. I never would have guessed some of us to be so familiar with the same places. I work out of Moline, Illinois. I'm all over the Quad Cities and often as far a Burlington and Dubuque, Iowa. My bandmates live in Burlington. There is a cool record store there too called Weird Harold's. I'm familiar with pretty much any town within a hundred mile radius of Davenport/Moline and all of the towns around the St. Louis area. Nice people in Davenport. Very cool man!!

  19. LongLostLPMan says:

    @stringchild1 Sorry to jump in here… I grew up in Davenport. That's where I got my love for R&B/Funk and Hip-Hop! Great memories!

  20. LongLostLPMan says:

    That is certainly one of the largest vinyl collections in a store that I have seen. It absolutely blows away any place that I have immediate access to. Only my all-time fave in Columbus, OH can compete. How's the R&B/Hip-Hop selection?
