Houston's Top 10 Record Stores

Record Store Day (recordstoreday.com) is six weeks away, but a good Houstonian should never need an excuse to visit one of our city's many record stores.

These fine brick-and-mortar shops have been doling out music for years and even decades in some instances. Run by some of the finest music lovers in Houston, these shops hold a wealth of knowledge in their staffs and a bounty of aural treasures in their stock.

Ranking them is no small feat, however, and in several cases determining which shop to rank above the next is quite difficult. Being blessed with such fine record stores is something we should consider a nice problem to have, though.
