Yes, it's still huge and overwhelming, especially if you're looking for vinyl. The CD selection is pretty rich, and manageable if you stay out of the super-cheap CDs. Over 35 music dealers sell used recordings, and posters. That said, the albums are divided up by dealers (maybe CDs are too?), and you could easily lose an hour and not cover the whole store. The only music seller's co-op in the state.

i thought their section of used and vintage sound equipment was pretty cool. everything from old turntables and receivers to reel-to-reel machines and equalizers...names like Marantz, DBX, Technics, etc. all there at decent prices...

and speaking of prices, a large percentage of the vinyl prices seemed pretty steep - as in $5 for a Herb Alpert LP you can find at any thrift store for 50 cents. oh well. tons to look through if you're a serious collector, though!

My Girlfriend and I found some pretty cool anarcho/crust punk records here, just laying on the floor.

Any thing from Portland's own SHOCK from early 80's and early 90's?

The only problem with this store is the attitude of the people behind the counter. They seem to think that they are the only place to buy vinyl in town. I don't know his name, but the fat guy in the tie dyed shirts realy pisses me off. I ain't going there again.

For more than 15 years I have found the finest selection of records at Crossroads. Some of the best and rarest finds have been had there and at realistic prices. As to the comment above, they may not be the only place, but there are one of the best in the USA.
