This is my favorite record store in RDU. I will outright say that Carolina Soul has the most reasonable prices of any store (we all know what a Beatles album should cost). They have a wonderful selection of jazz, soul, and a lot of niche genres that you don't find in a lot of places. They are extremely organized, and each record has been placed in a plastic sleeve - or at least the "upper shelf" ones that aren't $1. All of the employees are very helpful and recognize me. I suppose not many people request 10cc albums, though. I'm thankful to have a great shop so close by and one that seems to be tailored to my taste in vinyl.

Mainly Used Records, but a few fine new selections to pick through. Proprietors have exquisite taste on choosing quality, and fill the bins respectfully. You will Not leave empty~handed!!!

Great vibes, a record collector's dream, but also a great place to thumb through the $1 bins to find treasures. A Durham institution!

Jason came to my house last year and started looking at my huge 45 collection. He was looking at them so fast that he ripped and bent several over a hundred of my records. I have most likely the best collection in N.C. There was no respect for my collection. Do not let them come to your house. I am not pleased.

Very nice store. Simple, yet well organized. Lots of dollar priced records for the bargain hunter and many value-graded items coming a range of genres. Prices and grading are quite fair. Owner was very conversant. They also have an eBay store coming from this location. I recommend stopping in while in Durham. I'll be returning.

The laid back, helpful vinyl shopping experience with a decent in-store selection and good number of gems cataloged on discogs. Fair prices.
