Eleven years ago, a store opened its doors to the public in Dallas, Texas. For some, this store was a “blast from the past”, and for others a unique place to indulge in a musical adventure. The store (one of the most comfortable and exciting environments in the history of record stores in Dallas) is Good Records.
Covered in an array of CD stands (topped with a series of multi-colored light bulbs), embellished with album artwork, speakers, a faux grass covered platform supplied with (again) multi-colored stools and headphones for pre-listening comfort, and an upstairs balcony reserved only for vinyl records, Good Records, now sits at 1808 Lower Greenville Ave. striving to provide customers and guests with a fantastic, diverse, musical experience.
Originally located on Good-Latimer, in Deep Ellum, Good Records was founded by member of the band Tripping Daisy Tim DeLaughter, his wife Julie Doyle, and co-owner Chris Penn. Since midnight on opening day, back in 2000, the team of music aficionados has poured their “blood, sweat, and tears” into one of the only surviving record stores in the area, but they didn’t stop at records and CD’s. It is also been used to provide live music for such artists as Dallas resident Erykah Badu, Fruit Bats, The Entrance Band, and various others.
