Hello there Ladies and Gentlemen –

Black Friday limited edition, independent record store exclusives go on sale at World Records this Friday morning.  You can see the full list at

Over the past several weeks soooo many new BIG releases are in stock on CD and LP and ready for a new home.  Maybe yours?!:
Adele, The Eagles Live on their ‘Hotel California’ tour, the first Abba album in 90 years, The Doobie Bros., a second release by Alison Krauss and Robert Plant (the first one was phenomenal Grammy album of the year.), Ed Sheeran, solo by ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Dion “The Wanderer” (checkout that guest list), Springsteen and the E Street Band live in ’79, second release by blues wonder Kingfish Ingram, a great greatest of Ray Charles, and a new and always cool release by Tommy Castro. 
Tommy Castro?… hmmm… I’ve heard that name before.  Oh, right, TOMMY CASTRO… Tommy and the Painkillers will be at World Records for a can’t miss New Year’s Eve concert! 

If you need a turntable we have those too –
Yes we have Audio Technica turntables – direct drive, belt drive, USB, and Bluetooth – ready to get you spinning records again.

For a low-stress December, it’s not too early to think about great gift ideas: tickets for terrific upcoming World Records concerts, CDs, LPs, suh-weet World Records gift certificates, turntables, and record players.

People get joy listening to music and talking about music.  Joy is good right now.  Pat


is open for curbside shopping.

I am here during our regular store hours to help you find the music you need.  Please give me a call – 661-325-1982.  I will be your Personal Shopper and bring your CDs, LPs, gift certificates, or t-shirts out to you.  Feel free to call anytime and leave me a message.   I will return your call when I get back.

THANK YOU to everyone who gets their music at World Records, and everyone buying World Records gift certificates to help our local record store hang in there!

World Records is a gathering place for people who love music. We will resume in-person shopping as soon as possible. In the meantime, we are fully stocked to take care of your music needs. Please call during store hours, or leave a message on our answering machine.

39 and counting…

Hello there Ladies and Gentlemen –
Thanks to people who purchased music at our store and bought tickets to the 170+ concerts we have presented over the years, Saturday June 12th, World Records marked our 39th birthday!  If you’re one of those people – THANK YOU!!

15 months ago, back when no one knew how bad this thing was going to get, customer Kurt bought a $500 World Records gift certificate to give us some help staying up with our mortgage. 
Kurt came in last week and used some of his gift certificate to buy tickets to our September 17 Tab Benoit concert saying, “I gave you a one in four chance of making it through.”  
That means Kurt figured he had a three in four chance of never seeing his $500 again.  Thanks Kurt!
– The 40th year began June 12th, 2021.  May it be a year that music moves forward in our community!
