    Good prices, but a pretty limited used record section. Tons of excellent new stuff. I almost bit the bullet on that Slayer box set. 😬

    The premiere location in Baltimore for CDs, DVDs, and (most importantly), vinyl. I hope that the Internet doesn't put them out of business!

    If you're confused about where an artist is, look for them under a group they were in (i.e. Jerry Cantrell albums are actually with Alice in Chains). Also, don't miss the slightly hidden vinyl room.

    This place is kinda awesome... lots of oldies and people you've never heard of but there's a ton of new stuff in case you're into that too.

    This place doesn't have a huge selection which is a bummer, but the prices are pretty decent. Lots of DVDs that are well organized too.

    More vinyl, but used CDs are now mixed in with new discs. Seems like used CDs may be a much smaller portion of their inventory. Very few CD box sets, too!

    If you're buying used cds, CHECK THE CD BEFORE YOU BUY! Twice I've bought cds and later got home and found the wrong one inside.
