Easy Street

California Ave. SW, Seattle, WA

Mercer St., Seattle, WA : The special trip from the city proper to Easy Street's West Seattle location was always worth it, thanks to the store's hefty selection and adjacent cafe. Then the second store opened in Lower Queen Anne, near the Space Needle, and there was no further question as to which of Seattle's CD stores was best. Beyond the DVD wall, the array of magazines and books, generous number of box sets, and thorough metal selection, the LQA's secret weapon is a neatly arranged, dauntingly thorough vinyl selection where you're as likely to find cool disco rarities as the new limited-edition Beck 7-inch.
