This is a great store for vinyl and tshirts. They have a huge selection of metal and hip hop records, the store is knowledgeable and it's got an old school feel. No corporate records stores here. This place has been a Portland institution for 25+ years and it's still going strong. I remember seeing Questlove of the Roots in here about 10 years ago doing some record shopping, so if it's good enough for Quest it should be good enough for you.

I have lived here for a few years and I gotta say, I love this place! Awesome selection. The staff may be a bit "odd", but what do you expect? It's Portland! Also, to the person that was crying about the death metal being played, did you notice the size of the metal section? The clientele? If you want to shop with Backstreet boys playing for your personal pleasure, stick with shopping at Fye in the mall.

I really did not enjoy the service at this shop. Crowded and unfriendly, it made me want to take my business elsewhere. The salespeople put on death metal music and the group of four of us who came to shop all though they had done it to get rid of us.

This has been a Portland landmark for vinyl, hip hop and metal for over 20 years. I went to high school here in town 10 years ago and all the kids who were really into music loved this place. It's got a lot of character, with tshirts and posters all over the place, and the staff is usually very friendly and helpful. Some of the cds are put away in boxes but if you ask for something specific they'll be happy to bring them up for you. I highly recommend this place, especially in an age when independently owned businesses are being put under more pressure to compete.

If you're a vinyl snob like myself, and haven't visited 2nd ave records yet, you're missing out on a rare Portland gem! Separate sections for Punk, Metal/Hardcore, Garage Rock, Rock, Electronica, Reggae and more! They also sell cds, tapes, stickers & t-shirts.
The staff is very helpful, knowledgable and always playing some interesting tunes in the background.
