It was hard to write a title for this review, because really Wuxtry's does so much so well! They rank with Wax 'n Facts and Fantasyland for best vinyl selection in Atlanta, plus they've got great used CD's and all the new stuff, and they have a collector's niche that's fun to gaze at behind the glass. But for me the thing that sets them apart is the back room. You won't find too many browsers back there, but I've found some great jazz, bluegrass and soul records back there. They also have nice 45's underneath the CD's as you walk in; a little disorganized, but leafing through them in part of the fun. If music buying were meant to be instant, it wouldn't be as fun! The store's been there forever and has one of my top 3 record stores in Atlanta for 25 years now.

Been shopping here for the last 8 years and they always have something I'm looking for, if they don't they can get it quickly! Never been made to feel stupid when asking about some random band that only I like. A lot of record store folks look down on you if you don't know it all. The guys here actually have taught me a lot about artists that I never would have known otherwise. Thanks Wuxtry!!!

The guys at Wuxtry know what they're talking about, and they'll usually not overcharge. However, to get the good finds, you'll have to go every day and check the new arrivals, because as with all atl record stores, they get picked through pretty quickly. Nice guys though...

Have shopped here for over 10 years and have always had good luck finding quasi-obscure things I'm looking for at a good price. Great vinyl selection, got some great Boingo records for $3 each in like new condition. Staff is, as is usual at these kind of stores, somewhat sardonic. If your taste is cheesy like mine, shop in silence. ;p
