Encore Recordings

Ann Arbor, MI

Encore makes a lasting impression on buyers just passing through Ann Arbor (in addition to inspiring loyalty in locals) thanks to its seemingly endless stacks of used vinyl and CDs, as well as plenty of new stuff, particularly from local and regional artists old (Ann Arbor's own Stooges are represented heavily and well) and new (there's plenty from Wolf Eyes and other related noise acts). The store's appeal isn't limited to recordings — there's an impressive 'zine selection as well as memorabilia, in case you have an entire day to kill.
