Off the Record
3849 Fifth Avenue, Hillcrest
One of San Diego's oldest record stores, Off the Record is one of the few that carries records, a commodity scarcer nowadays than Phil Collins's hair. When the store's SDSU location closed, many of their vinyl treasures ended up in Hillcrest or as part of the website inventory. Off the Record can now be counted on as a source for hundreds of thousands of rare albums, and they'll search for any nylon disc ever pressed if you provide them enough information and can afford collector's prices.
