Ask anyone who's made the drive into the wilds of Decatur's Leafmore/Oak Grove/Sagamore Hills neighborhood to check out Ella Guru, and the response is akin to a wild-eyed Dennis Hopper circa Apocalypse Now. Tales of mind-blowing records lining the store's bins and walls are true. It's all used vinyl, and owner Don Radcliffe and the tight crew he keeps know the value of a well-curated selection. Be it classic or obscure rock nuggets, country gold, hip-hop 12-inches, serious avant-garde scores, or deep cuts from Marion Brown, John Coltrane, or Sun Ra's catalogs, the dedication to quality over quantity is Ella Guru's strong suit. The prices are right, but bring a stacked wallet. You can't leave empty-handed. less...

After years of supplying CDs to hipsters, CRIMINAL RECORDS has lived up to its name and become a full-fledged record store. In addition to vintage vinyl and brand-new LPs of the latest albums, Criminal makes it a priority to stock ample supplies of paycheck-siphoning box sets and limited-edition items.

Can you afford not to own the deluxe nine-LP Mastodon set on 180-gram vinyl? And you know where to find the Stone Roses 20th anniversary LP/CD/DVD box set.

The "facts" moniker in this venerable L5P store's name is no joke. Who needs the Internet when there are living, breathing encyclopedias to explain everything you need to know about that impossible to find vinyl album, and then magically pull out a used copy, usually at a reasonable price. Although criticized for occasionally edging too close to the snobbishly aloof, High Fidelity image, the store has the most extensive collection of used vinyl around and a record loving staff with wide-ranging knowledge in a variety of genres. less...
