Where to Find Those Obscure Seattle Records

Posted: December 18, 2011 in From the Appendix

After my reading/signing yesterday at Siren Records, my friend Jeff looked through the Appendix where I list “Little-Known Seattle Records You Should Listen To,” and commented about how some of them might be hard to locate.  So, with that in mind, I thought I’d offer a little assistance (big of me, I know).  No guarantees these leads will work, however.*

(Note: the following numbers correspond to the Appendix.  I am not listing the actual records in fairness to those who bought the book.)

Individual Artists

  1. Try krecs.com.
  2. This one may be tough, but you can try Jack Endino’s site (endino.com.)  He may have some copies available.
  3. I got mine from Jeff Smith aka Jo Smitty.  I’ll contact him and see if he has more on hand.
  4. Try contacting Conrad Uno at info@eggstudios.com.
  5. Last I checked, these songs were up on iTunes.
  6. Try subpop.com.
  7. I believe I got this one off of ebay.
  8. Email Rob Morgan at rob@poplust.com.  And check out poplust.com for more of his stuff.
  9. Tough one…I found this in a used record store in Seattle’s University District.  Try ebay.
  10. Try contacting Conrad Uno at info@eggstudios.com.
  11. Try store.sstsuperstore.com.
  12. Try contacting Conrad Uno at info@eggstudios.com.
  13. Try dadastic.com/chuck_splash.html or iTunes.
  14. Try endino.com.
  15. Ditto.

  17. Try emptyrecords.com.
  18. Try subpop.com or iTunes.
  19. Try subpop.com.
  20. This one’s pretty much available everywhere.

Compilations

  1. I got this one off ebay.
  2. I found this one in a used record store on Capitol Hill in Seattle.  Try ebay.
