I heard some people saying it was hard to find S.P.C. music for sale.

I figured I would post some music stores around Houston, and on the internet.

I made this a few years back and kept updating it.

The stores are prone to be in Southwest/South Houston.

 

Come on people, let's stimulate the economy and buy music!

Share your latest music spots around town or the internet... I could buy a few CDs myself..

Side note.

The larger national big box stores (Best Buy, Barnes & Noble, and Borders) are less likely to have good S.P.C. music in stock, in stores.  They would be an online order only.  Try the more independent or small music stores first. Sometimes local music is harder to find than the Top 40 majors. (At least, in my experience.)

I'll provide my insight:


Wherehouse on Westheimer and Hillcroft: GONE - yeah they actually had all of the K-Rino albums, but a few months ago they just dissapearred.  I don't know if they are coming back or not.


Movie Exchanges - been to two (westheimer and hillcroft, and one by US 59 and Wilcrest) Both had a few used SPC releases, but they want to charge 30 bucks for some CDs you can get direct from Big Tyme or other stores for 15 bucks.  Wouldn't recommend, especially since used K-Rino CDs are almost as expensive as getting them new straight from K. 


Soundwaves - Been to the one on montrose, nothing good there.


Sound Exchange - no good rap or any SPC last time I went.


Cactus - Same as above, no good rap or any SPC. 



Reggae Bodega:  They had The Terrorists - Detonate Landmines and 144 Elite CDs for sale as far as SPC stuff as well as a few CDs with features.  Good for Smugglaz music though.


Hastings (Huntsville) - this one is out of the way, but I stopped by it once and they had all Street Military stuff and all Klondike Kat albums on Beat Box Records - pretty good prices too.  Also had KB and Lil' Flea album.


Piranha Records - when I was in Austin I'd go here for SPC music - always have the new stuff at a good price. 


Music Mania - Austin as well, not as good selection and more expensive. 


Platinum Music and More - This is in Fort Worth, I've bought two SPC albums here in the last year, Pharoah - Six Foot Giant and G-Rapp The General.


On a side note, Boy C where would your recommend me getting another copy of Point Blank's Mad At The World?  I bought a repress from Music Mania a few years back but it was cheap quality and the CD started flaking away.  It was an official repress, but a really bad one.  Has Big Tyme done a better repress?  I want something that will last but I don't want to pay for ebay or nothing.

AAA communications on reed rd. is no longer. they are a christian bookstore @ that location now and moved the music store somewhere off beltway 8 & 59s.


that hastings in conroe is gone.


stickhorse is still there on cullen, but has gone from sugar to shit.


movie exchange is $$$$ as hell because they carry mostly original pressings. beatbox has reissued most all of their catalog and can be found almost anywhere.


soul 21 in n.w. mall use to be good about carrying old stuff, but i haven't been there in about 2 years.


i keep hearing good things about alief bang. havent went, but plan on making the trip.

Complejo,

Thanks for the information.

I would do Bigtyme then Sosouth and then Ebay for that Blank.


thatboymo,

Thanks for the information.


I did contact AAA communications last week.  I called before making the trip over there.  The owner did tell me it's now a Christian book store.

He said all the rap music he had for sale, in his store, is now with his son Big Juice.

He said the store is somewhere on the "Southwest side" Beltway 8 and 59.

I called Big Juice and he did not know what I was talking about.

Thought I'd add a little update.  Hastings in Conroe is still there, was there a few weeks ago, they are not closing.


I finally made it out to Alief bang, dope store and will work with you, definitely recommend it if you are in the area.  They don't have the biggest store, but they have a lot of selection from SPC to ABN to Screw to Boss Hogg Outlawz and UGK.  They had a lot of Blank.  I picked up the Nip - Physic Thoughts Repress, nice quality and only 13 bucks. 


Thinking of hitting up Screwed Up Records just to say I been, anyone know when they are open?  Some of these smaller places are random closed and I don't want to waste a trip.

Just thought I'd add that you can get your own personal screwed up mix from DJ Red of Screwed Up Records and Tapes.  You can hit him up on twitter or email and he'll hook you up for the right price.  I just had a mix game and had a couple of K-Rino songs on there.
