With everything from movie posters to record cases lining the walls of its small shop, BackTrack Records oversees a trove of new and used vinyl LPs, CDs, and classic merchandise. Previously owned albums ($2–$15 on average) from artists such as Led Zeppelin, Tom Waits, and Nirvana recall familiar ditties and secret backwards messages about the importance of sharing. BackTrack’s staff grades and prices used records and covers according to their condition, sorting them on the shelves next to selections of new, factory-sealed LPs ($13.95–$29.95). The vast, rotating inventory includes such miscellany as a Beatles limited edition of Trivial Pursuit ($29.99) and an official BackTrack Records T-shirt ($10) to wear as a team uniform during musical chairs.
