The Music World as I see it is the industry that has to have the most diversity. It has to make available all the different music and instruments that everyone wants and stay ahead of the competition. I have researched and I believe the following four music stores are the best and most diverse in the Chicago Illinois Area. Even though these are my top four picks there are many other music stores in Chicago and you can visit all of them at www.local.yahoo.com.
Dusty Groove America is located near Wicker Park on North Ashland Avenue. They have a wide range of music available that will satisfy everyone’s individual taste in music. They offer music that ranges from Soul to Latino music. While researching the music available to Chicago I learned that Dusty Groove America offers CDs, LPs, they have 45s, as well as their own record label. They are very diverse and have received good reviews. Visit their web site for more details at www.dustygroove.com or by searching www.local.yahoo.com.
Reckless Records is located near Lakeview East on North Broadway Street and they offer a wide range of oldies and new releases for soul and hip-hop lovers. They have three locations in Chicago but by researching on www.local.yahoo.com I believe the best selections are at the Broadway locations. Check them out at www.reckless,com .
Coulsons is a different type of music store but is a gem for inspiring musicians who need sheet music, they offer sheet music for pianist who wants to do duets or play solo and they have a wide variety of other accessories to include magazines, stands and piano lights.
