Get retro in that record store
Albums, 45s, CDs, cassettes, DVDs, VHS tapes and more… If it’s old school, retro media, you’re going to find it at Solo Records, a boutique gem on Woodward Ave. at Royal Oak.
Solo Records has been in business for 41 years, according to store owner Lorna Kuschel. As you enter the store you will find vintage t-shirts and notice artwork and posters on the wall, but it is the music that will catch your eyes and ears. You can rummage through rows of albums and search for vintage finds. Solo Records manager Heath Craig described the shop as having a bit of everything.
Music ranges from the Beatles to Archie Bell & The Drells, Alice Cooper, George Benson, Dave Brubeck, Ella Fitzgerald and many more. While appearing on “Live In The D”, Solo Records also presented an original copy of “Steamin’ with the Miles Davis Quintet”. One customer, Eric, calls Solo Records a “unique place” and says he always finds something different when he visits.
Craig suggests keeping the room where you store your vintage music collectibles cool and dry. “Heat and water are a collectible’s worst enemies,” Craig said.
Solo Records is located at 30148 Woodward Ave. at Royal Oak. Watch the video above to see inside the record store.
