If you know what you want and it can be found anywhere on Spotify, head to Mad World Records in Denton or Good Records on Greenville Avenue. If you want a bottomless crate to dig through, head for Bill’s Records. But for the most rewarding record browsing experience in Dallas, there is no topping Half Price Books, particularly its flagship location on Northwest Highway. There you’ll find a meticulously organized and surprisingly large collection of songs that sound better scratchy, or never made their way to digital translations. There’s plenty of Dallas history there as well, particularly in the country and blues sections. And the prices are built for people looking for something functional rather than the shrink-wrapped artifacts found elsewhere in town.
