Record stores are becoming increasingly rare, but New Orleans is fortunate to have a few, including the distinct Domino Sound. The selection is vast, and if you’re not looking for anything in particular, do what I do and buy whatever is currently playing in the store. It’s a fun (albeit random) way to build or add variety to a record collection. At the moment, I’m leaning heavily toward old reggae, and I’m loving it. Bless up.
Opened in 2007, Domino Sound carries new and used vinyl records, cassettes, dominoes, and some stereo equipment, including turntables. We have, what we believe to be, the largest selection of reggae 45’s and LP’s in the South. The International section is also very well represented, with hundreds of records from around the globe. There are also well stocked sections of Punk, Blues, Jazz, Soul, Hip Hop, Rock, Folk, Avant Garde, Local, and more. We’re a shop, not a museum, and the records are priced with the idea that we might sell them.
