Friends of Sound

You may have missed this South Congress staple if you haven't been looking for it; tucked away in an alley, Friends of Sound is a haven from the busy main street half a block away. Stopping by, you're just as likely to pick up the record that's playing on the turntable as the one you came in looking for — employees always have a great suggestion, and their wide-ranging tastes mean the shop is stocked with carefully chosen used titles. You can browse most of their titles online, and special order anything you can't find on the shelves. 

Check the back room for deeply discounted vinyl.
