I love this store. It is a real jewel. By far my favorite in all of Philly. I've been to their competition in Chestnut Hill, Philly in Olde City and on South Street. Nothing compares. If you are into vinyl and rare CDs, new CDs, re-releases, etc and absolutely love Rock and Roll (as well as Jazz, Country, Folk, etc) this is the store!!!

Pros: Best vinyl and CD selection in Philly

Cons: Would like to see more concert DVDs available

I love going to Main Street Music, even if just to browse. The selection is fantastic; you can lose a few hours just browsing if you're not careful. They also have used DVDs, and everything is at a great price. Definitely stop by here the next time you're on Main Street, even if you don't need CDs or DVDs...it's great to just look around!

Never had anything I was looking for. Went to this store at least five times to buy specific albums, and they didn't have them. The guys that work there are not terribly helpful, and while they may know a lot about music, they play the "if you are not into what we are into you don't listen to good music" routine.

Music taste is subjective. These guys haven't figured that out. Don't waste your time. Buy from iTunes. The prices are the same.

This store has everything, from the newest cd's to used cd's. Every genre of music, it is easy to get lost browsing their selection. They also carry vinyl both new and used. The staff is very helpful in finding your favorites and with the release dates of new music.

Wow, what a refreshing place to shop for music. Nothing fancy, just good old fashion used CD's, Indie, etc. They now have vinyl for sale!!
Very knowledgable staff. Pat the owner has great taste and is the greatest Beatles authority around.
Spend the afternoon browsing the nice used section or picking the staffs brain for reviews on new releases.
PRICES ARE WAY CHEAPER THAN ANY CHAIN!!!
Go there now!

Pros: selection, PRICES

Cons: wish they had an online site

Editorial from

The Scene
Independent music stores are an endangered species, but ones like Main Street Music give you faith that the best will weather the competition from chain stores and online suppliers. A handful of in-store listening…
