Best of Boston

2012 Best Music, Used

In Your Ear

Thirty years is a long time in the music business, particularly when you’re still vending vinyl in the age of iTunes. But with hundreds of thousands of records, CDs, and eight-tracks stacked in a subterranean space, In Your Ear’s Boston location has flourished since 1982. You can search the inventory online—albums are graded by condition—but trust us: It’s more fun to dig through the crates.
