Papa Jazz Record Shoppe

Columbia, South Carolina, United States

From their Website:

Welcome to Papa Jazz Record Shoppe's online home. As one of the largest (and, if we do say so, best) record shops in the southeast United States, we've cemented a 33-year reputation for having the rarest, coolest stuff around. And, to boot, we've got some of the best prices too.
Whatever you're looking for, we've probably got it, so please email us at and we'll see if we can help you find that piece of music you've been looking for

And though jazz is certainly our specialty (particularly free jazz and avant garde), we're also quite a source for rare funk/R&B, hip-hop, punk/indie rock, progressive rock, classic rock, reggae and pretty much anything you might be looking for. And whether it's on LP, CD, 45, or now DVD we just might have it. We take care of our stock as well - read about how we clean & grade our records.

We hope you'll send us your want list, and heed the words of Fred D. Cat: "If Papa Jazz ain't got it, it ain't worth having."

I’ve shopped at Papa Jazz for over 30 years and in my opinion it’s the best record store in the South, if not the whole east coast. Lowest prices, best selection & condition, great staff, all in the same dingy hole-in-the-wall building since 1979. Pretty well organized bins, lots of bargains & always a high quotient of unique finds across many genres, not just jazz.
