Streetlight Records




Masks are currently required to enter the stores at this time. 

For those of you who don't know, Streetlight Records is a quasi-religious cult, complete world view, and refuge for morally handicapped artists and musicians. We operate two retail stores, one in San Jose and one in Santa Cruz. "What are our 'real world' address,                                                  "the hapless net surfer may ask? I'll tell you.

Welcome back! Due to the county orders and the safety of our employees and their families, mask coverings are required upon entry of stores. Thank you and we appreciate your business!

We buy and trade (and we particularly want to buy your) CDs, LPs, 45s, Blu-Ray, DVDs, Video Games, and music memorabilia (vintage concert posters, concert programs, classic toys, etc). We believe we pay the best prices around and buy the widest variety, but such a statement is too self promotional and commercial for The Internet. If you live near enough and your collection's big enough we'll even make house calls to evaluate your collection.

Our philosophy , if you could call it that, is that all music's cool, or is so uncool that its cool again, or soon will be. We love it all. We embrace music from other cultures, other eras, other mentalities, and other worlds. We love roots music, classical, blues, jazz, good pop, bad pop, hip hop, soul, r & b, rap, experimental, and college radio music. About the only things we're not sure about are this week's big mega-hits (but we'll sell 'em to ya). We've never been narrow in our focus, and tend to draw people that are passionate about music and have far reaching tastes. It's not unusual for one of our customers to buy CD's and vinyl with classical, jazz, rock, and Tom Jones represented. We love to break down boundaries and make references to music lyrics.
We try to hire people that are musically literate, and have varied musical backgrounds. Many of our employees are performing musicians and/or visual artists.
We now have a secure shopping cart that makes it easy to purchase rare music and movies. This is just a fraction of what we have in any of our stores at any given time. If there is anything you are looking for and you are not able to find it on our site then please e-mail us. We also do mail orders for those of you who don't live near one of our locations.
