Secret Sounds

Filling the cultural void since 1990

the Bridgeport location was a block away from my grandmother's house, so i was able to pop in often. The staff turned my 14 year old self onto so much great music that it helped inspire me to spend more than half my life booking shows and running a record label. The best record store ive ever had the privlege of visiting.

Matt Flood

Fantastic store, when Chris was in Black Rock, Bridgeport! I see no reason why things may have changed down in Athens except Athens is a much cooler town!

Zog Domeracki

Stoked that Razz has a store again. Fine selection of LPs, CDs and cassettes at very fair prices.
