Vinyl Lovers Paradise! Rasp...

Vinyl Lovers Paradise!



Rasputin has it all, DVD's, CD's, etc. but what I love the most is the used (vinyl) LP collection they have. From the high end items down to the lowest price, you consistently get your money's worth. Since I'm on limited income right now I have to focus on LP's that are $1.00 or less and Rasputin has never let me down...I always leave with quite a few treasures, often with an armload of them. Even their 50 cent section is more than decent and copying the vinyl to .mp3 with a good scratch filter usually solves the sound problems on the worst case items - however the majority of the 50 cent and $1.00 LP's are in pretty good condition to begin with, which is why I keep returning time after time. Highly recommended !!

Not Recommend

Maybe the biggest music store around there, but the service is terrible and the price is not cheap.
You had better go to Amazon at first.

Bad Service

I bought a DVD at Berkeley store. The DVD said ""List 69.97 / Rasputin Price 39.97"", so I thought it was really cheap. But after I came back home and checked internet, I found that the real retail price of the DVD is 44.98!! Amazon sells it only 24.00 dollars. I returned to the store and tried to refund it. They said that it was their mistake, but that they cannot refund because they don't have return policy. What do you think? I feel like that I got taken!! I will never go to the store again.

Rasputin's-home of the amateur rock historian

Over the course of my dealings with them, I've had some problems with 2 of the employees at Rasputin's. These guys are amateur rock historians, who are judgemental of people who don't listen to their metal or any of that junk. I buy alot of 70s punk and obscure rock, soul and blues from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000's, as well as flamenco, old country and jazz. I consider my tastes to be very diverse and I'm always respectful when meeting new people, despite the judgemental criticism I received at this store on multiple occasions. The guys at Rasputin's are cocky and all-knowing, as they play obnoxious music through their system, in an attempt to impress someone, or perhaps each other. These show-offs are obviously trying to compensate for everything they lack. I can find better record stores by simply driving through San Francisco.

Best Overall Selection & Prices

As far as overall ratings, my experience is that Rasputins Berkeley is easily the better independent music store. Rasputins Berkeley prices are cheaper and in many cases more fare than others. The music selection is awesome; with an emphasis on their world music, hip hop, hardcore metal and independent. Their DVD selection is superior in both selection and price (mainly in the latter, though). Wherever you go shop the indie-stores! But you cant go wrong starting at Rasputins Berkeley locationAmple parking in the rear of the store.
