On November 1, 1977, Main Street Records opened with a smattering of new and used, import and independent, popular and alternative vinyl. Customer requests led us to seek out-of-the-ordinary sources and eventually resulted in trips to the United Kingdom in search of elusive items. These trips as well as other pursuits produced a massive quantity of hard-to-find music. In June of 1985, SPIN magazine had this to say about Main Street Records:
Over the years alternative music has become commonplace, vinyl has given way to compact discs, but we have continued to stock the unusual and rare in all formats. Inside you will find a diverse assortment of artists and items, from ABC to 999, from Duran Duran to The The, all having in common their relative unavailability in your nearby mall. New arrivals are added weekly - the latest releases from the UK and elsewhere as well as recently purchased or recently cataloged collectors' items. Contained herein is just a small sampling of our stock. Want lists and inquiries are welcome.
