Why locals recommend it
It’s a throwback record store focused on soul, funk, and Motown. I have spent hours here. Affable owner Dick Vivian, a true Lower Haight legend, has been running the show for nearly 30 years, and is always down to share some colorful neighborhood lore. As you walk by the store, you’ll likely hear music spilling onto the street. Dick’s curated mix CDs—for sale at the register—are great soundtracks for your next party, featuring tracks you won’t find online.
