8. Freakbeat Records - Sherman Oaks

Freakbeat Records is the most versatile and organized record store in the Valley. Loaded with a large collection of new releases, popular reissues, and anything their loyal customers ask for, Freakbeat doesn't seem to specialize in a genre - though they've got a shit-ton of rock LPs. The staff, mostly older and wiser, cater to the varying requests from suburbanites east of the 405 freeway, while CD Trader in Tarzana takes everyone else under the Valley sun.13616 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423 | 818-995-7603

7. As the Record Turns - Hollywood

Remember the original robotic rapist cover for G N'R's Appetite for Destruction? The one the label had to switch out due to complaints from retailers? As the Record Turns has the only copy we've ever seen in person. Owner Kevin caters to hardcore collectors, and carries only the most highly collectible originals in VG+ (Very Good Plus) or better condition. The good news? Prices are negotiable and a free record is included with every purchase. 6727 3/8 Hollywood Blvd. Hollywood, CA 90028 | 323-251-4895
