I used to go here at least once a week to check out new music. As I'd climb the stairs from Green Street, they'd always have something cool playing, with the jacket displayed at the counter.

Checking through the bargain bins one day in 1975, I found a copy of Buckingham Nicks for a couple bucks. I'd been going through Fleetwood Mac withdrawals with no new albums, so I bought it.

Another time, the sound of Chameleon greeted me, and I just had to buy Herbie Hancock's groundbreaking Headhunters album, take it home and learn the keyboard parts.

Record Factory workers were always on top of new releases and bands, and could always direct you to what you were looking for. I suspect they've kept that work ethic into the CD era. Highly recommended.

The best store to find new and used CD's in the entire champaign-urbana area. They have tons of good stuff here, a really big indie and import selection, I once found an entire collection of Depeche Mode import singles here for $1 each. They have sections for all kinds of music, I was surprised how many different genres they have listed. The staff are friendly and always playing good music, you can see what they're playing up front too. Anything they don't have they can order for you, but their selection is so amazing you can find plenty of cool stuff here, including lots of bootlegs you won't find at chain stores like borders. They're right on green street near the quad so there is very little parking but you can just walk there from the campus. Upstairs they have a lot of posters you can buy as well.

PROS: good selection of CD's, good music playing in store
CONS:
