While I mentioned previously that Avalon Vintage might be my favorite LA record store, Record Jungle is far behind. Every single time I’ve gone there I’ve found some strange and obscure record, almost always for less than $10. The very first time I went to Record Jungle, I found that insane Becky & Sandy Doom Gospel record, and the spot is particularly good for Apocalyptic styled sermon/gospel music. As you’ll see below, there’s just all kinds of weird records to be found at “The Jungle.” But, the thing that might be best about Record Jungle is that even records that you’ve heard about, classic breaks, rarer releases, still tend to be priced 50% (or more) lower than at other places. Andy at Record Jungle maintains a diggers perspective even as a business owner, with his records priced to sell, and with more than a few gems to discover, but only if you spend the time to dig in the crates. Look out for sales, such as the 50% off Labor Day sale where most of these pictures were taken, but really whenever you have a chance to go to the Record Jungle, you should go. And if you’re gonna go, don’t expect just to breeze in and breeze out. Expect to spend hours going through the LPs and 45s…you never know what is hiding behind the next record.
