Music in any form has the power to transport the listener. This ability is particularly keen when emitted from the pops and cracks of vinyl records. There’s nothing like raw auditory stimulation to carry a listener into an era they can only know through imagination.

Elliott Downs opened Wonder Records in downtown Harrisonburg, VA in 2011. Wonder Records specializes in the sale of used vinyl, from blues to punk to jazz to whatever else you might be in the mood for today.
