Bill's Records and Tapes
Visit one of the city's largest and unquestionably most popular music stores. Located in North Dallas, Bill's is the largest independent record store in the country. The shop carries everything from old and new vinyl albums (yes, albums), CDs and tapes (imported, domestic and out of print titles) to T-shirts, hats, concert videos, posters, stickers and other collectibles. The store's motto is: "If we don't have it, we can get it."
I grew up in Dallas. My teen years spent in the miserable era we know as the mid to late 80's. My love of metal was strong & when it seemed there was no way to find all the cool & rare stuff I searched for so desperately, Bill's R&T was my Mecca......I swear, there was almost NOTHING you couldn't find there. And if he didn't have it, by God, he'd get it. He was immortal to me.....this mere mortal who could get me my rare Manowar imports than no other meek existing peon could possibly help me find. BILL did.....and considering how varied our music scene was, you can rest assured that no matter WHAT genre of music you are into, this man has the most uncanny sixth sense of having something you cannot live without or he'll get it, no sweat. My heart is glad to know it is still up, running & offering the same great product & service I loved them for!! Just have some cash.....stuff as rare as he has isn't cheap, but he's always got something cool going on & he's not afraid to haggle a bit....IF he likes you. The worst you could say about his prices is that they are fair.....and if that's the worst, that's pretty good! I'd rather pay a little more to get what he delivers that to get it cheap at some soulless mall location or fly-by-night future office space.
I hope this place lives forever. You can rest assured that when I go back, I'll undoubtedly be spending some of my hard-earned loot getting something else I can't live without.
Do yourself a favor & GET THERE. You'll thank me later. I promise!
