For the last four decades, Bop Street Records was known as one of the most influential and well-known independent music stores in America. In 2020, when the beloved brick-and-mortar store closed its doors it seemed like an end to a vibrant era. Bop Street Records closing at the end of June came as a surprise to many in town.
As technology evolved, so did our needs as customers, and with that in mind we have created this new digital platform. We are ready to embrace a new chapter in history starting with a digital revival.
Bop Street Records
Bop Street Records was a landmark in the history of music, proving to be more than just a music library. From rock to jazz and blues to country, folk, world, children’s soundtracks and others- Bop Street Music carried over 10,000 classical LP’s as well as 45’s, 78’s, and 8-track tapes and cassettes. It also featured an extensive collection of musical genres with many hard-to-find titles from the 1950s through 1990s.
Dave had a personal connection with every customer that walked into the store and provided them with an in-depth tour. The store was located at 2220 NW Market street, in the heart of Seattle. It was visited by some famous bands such as Radiohead, The Pogues, Pearl Jam; who amongst various others became lost in Bop Street Records’ timeless archive.
