Do they even keep regular hours these days? It seems every time I go down that block they're closed.


The store owner owns the building too. He lives in one of the upstairs apartments, rents out the other ones, and rents out the bar too. No fear of being pushed out by a sudden rent increase for him. Good deal.


You nailed the vibe of that store. Found a lot of great promo CDs there in the '90s for only 88 cents! 88 cents!

Vinny Marino

I worked at Sounds in 1984 and '85. It was just vinyl back then, and for a music junkie, working there was heaven. I spent my days in the back slapping those pink and black price stickers on a never ending pile of LPs and 12-inch singles. Sounds was the place to be. You'd meet before a date, go to a concert, then come back to Sounds to hang out. That street has changed so much since I worked there. At one time, there was a Sounds video outlet around the corner too. Great memories.
