Top 7 Record Stores in Broward and Palm Beach Counties

6. Reggae Land Muzik
In 2012, we declared Reggae Land Muzik the best reggae record store in our land. Located on Hallandale Beach Boulevard, we compared it to a well-organized museum. Owner Juicy V or Jah V stacks the place with impressive dancehall mixes, cassettes, and rare vinyl. His collection in wax alone amounts to more than 100k records. He's been doing this for two decades now, so, better trust the man in what he says, and he's down to advise you on which album you actually need to get the full Caribbean experience.

5. We Got the Beats
Fort Lauderdale's We Got the Beats is a record and CD store that keeps the interest of the LGBTQ community in mind. And with Wilton Manors so close by, that seems very considerate of them.

Owner Tony Cicalese got started out on eBay in 1999 but only four years ago set up an actual shop. He'd traveled the country for years gathering some amazing finds. We Got the Beats moved to a bigger spot in Oakland Park just this year, so you should check out their new digs.

He says on the website, "I tried to take what I liked and didn't like about all the music stores I'd visited over the years, throw in a little funk and glitter, and create the ultimate destination for dance music and more in South Florida." So the glitter's what's gay about it? Maybe it's the Donna Summer tribute section or Deee-lite and Freddie Mercury posters?

Anyway, this store is inclusive. It's for everyone, so feel free to come get anything your heart desires. They'll be open a full 12 hours, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Record Store Day with a DJ and giveaways.

Haha shows how well I read. Great list though, and I know this one is in Miami but have you guys ever been to Lily's Records? I just heard about it, but have never been. Wondered if you guys had any take on that place?

This must be a list from best to worst with Confusion on it, but it's nice to see We Got The Beat, and Record Rack on the list, where is Sweat though? and seriously unless your into straight Regge and Dance Hall, VP is a waste of time. Confusion has nothing going for it other than its name though, matching how things are laid out in the store with most records unpriced and the rest thrown around the store in nearly no order whatsoever. Finding something worthwhile for a fair price is like finding a needle in a haystack but if you do find your gem make sure the shop keep dosent know you found a gem or the price will be hiked up a bit because of your excitement.
