Monster Music is a legacy remaining from an era of large music and film department stores. They do a good job of making it feel like (and maybe it is) a small independent shop. The store carries a large selection of new and used vinyl, along with CD’s and DVD’s.
The environment is spacious and records are organized into various categories. The used stock had plenty of quality records, but the prices were fair (or a little on the high side for me), so I only looked for records I knew I wanted to purchase – and had a price in mind I was willing to pay. Unfortunately, I did not find anything that fit those criteria.
The shop has a listening station (need to provide ID to get the needle), so I tested out a few albums that appeared to be interesting, but didn’t find any I could not live without.
I’ll stop back in the store when I visit Charleston again.
