Now, here is a little bit about Zip's Ziggurat...

I've been collecting records for about 35 years now. (Jeez, I can't believe it! I've never really thought about that...) I've been in record retail at many different levels for most of the last 25 years, from small mom and pops to large mall chains. My (somewhat jokey) slogan is: "Bespoke LPs and CDs of the Latter Ages" I am committed to fast, fair service and to making sure that you get the music you want in the condition you want. I carefully grade, clean inspect and pack every item I sell and I do my best to see that all my items are exactly as described. This being an imperfect world, very occasionally there might be a glitch. When there is a glitch I do my best to solve it quickly and fairly.

Looking for a certain 12 inch, LP or CD? Please feel free to EMAIL ME
