I've never been to that one, I frequent the one in Natick most since my friend works there and its pretty much the only place I see him these days, that location's pretty large as well.

It is directly across rt. 9 from the mall, the best way to get there would be to get off the pike at exit 12 and head east on 9. I known the area well, I went to high school in Natick.

cool. i've decided the next time i go to boston (usually technically cambridge, but eastern mass in general i mean) for a show, it's doubling as a cd shopping trip but the norwood store is a little more out of the way. all i remember is i got off the pike, thought wtf where am i and my there are a lot of stores here, got back on the pike and continued onto wherever i was headed.

I'm not from Boston, but I've done the same thing the last couple times I've been there, and I've had good luck at a couple of places that haven't been mentioned: 1) a little used music store just west of Massachusetts on Boylston, essentially on the Berklee campus. Wish I remembered the name... They're cheap, and they've got local music separated into it's own section. 2) Planet Records in Cambridge, near Harvard Square. I found some music here that I'd been chasing for years, and the prices were fair.

I've only been to the Newbury Comics on Boylston, and they have an awesome selection, but I thought their used music was too high ($8-10 mostly). They probably have to charge that to maintain that high-rent location. However, their new releases are cheap! I'm still kicking myself for not picking up the new Belle & Sebastian - they had it for $6, I think.

You have to catch the sales they do, or justify the used prices as about as good as you can get with half.com or the Amazon marketplace with the shipping, but for a chain, there's not a better used store in New England. Also, a lot of the time their first week prices beat Best Buy (and obviously they stock a lot of new releases that people at BB won't have even heard about).

Agentorange, was Looney Tunes the record store you were talking about?? It's on Boylston like right below street level like block from Mass Ave.

Yeah, that name sounds familiar. It's a dusty old shop, concrete floors, with a lot of vinyl. But I don't remember it being below street level...

i've been there. are they still there? i was looking for that place not too long ago when i was out there, but not finding it could have had more to do with not really remembering exactly where it was. i thought it was somewhere near that bar with the psuedo-commie art/name (which i also can't remember), near where i've ended up walking around/driving past when i went to shows at the mid east. but sometimes my geographical sense of boston/cambridge gets seriously screwed up.

Yeah Looney Tunes is still there, and I suppose it would only make sense for you to end up there from the Middle East if you kept going on Mass Ave back into Boston. As for the pub, the only one I can think of is Bukowski's, but I don't know much about the namesake.

Yes, I was at Looney Tunes and Bukowski's a few weeks ago. From experience, I recommend chasing Catherine Wheel's Ferment album with a Pretty Things Jack D'Or saison.
