A well-rounded music collection is a sign of a well-rounded person, whereas a well-octagoned music collection means that you’ve been listening to stop signs on your turntable. Give the green light to recorded sound with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of used records and CDs at Siren Records in Doylestown.
The independent-music outpost Siren Records puts a swing in the step and fresh slabs of vinyl in the backpacks of music aficionados thanks to racks stuffed with more than 200,000 new and vintage LPs and CDs. A seemingly endless array of rock, jazz, country, and psychedelic sonics from treasured imprints awaits crate diggers. Discern the difference between acoustic and electric didgeridoos with albums such as Joni Mitchell's Court and Spark LP ($24.99) and Screeching Weasel's latest punk salvo, First World Manifesto, or legally adopt singles from other countries such as The Chameleons' "Tears" ($22.99), or The Smashing Pumpkins' "1979" 12-inch ($39.99).
Casual listeners can pop right in and quickly fish out the song that’s been stuck in their craws, and 180-gram audiophiles can strap on some ear snorkels and spend the day diving through Siren’s outrageous stacks of high-gram wax and gently used gems. Or circumvent itchy flea markets by scaling a bargain bin that brims with more than 100 albums priced at less than $5 and more than 200 priced at $5–$10.
Eleven Yelpers give Siren Records a 4.5-star average:
- Siren is the BEST record store around. They have albums you'd never find anywhere else, and they're inexpensive. Their new(er) location has a lot more room than the last store and everything is much more organized. Plus, they have bins of free (and rare) posters. – Alicia F., Yelp, 5/6/08
- This place is great. Huge selection of music, good prices. Cool place to spend hours in if need be. – Shazana G., Yelp, 7/10/09
