Tell us why in the comments! We’ll publish the results in the next print issue of Triad City Beat.


  1. Is voting over? I came here to vote, and I can see the results, but I can’t vote. Anyway, my vote is for Earshot! Phred and the other guy (I wanna say Adam?) are both really nice and helpful…they always have great contests and are really knowlegeable about what’s going on music-wise in the area. If you’re looking for something to do, ask Phred because he knows where all the cool stuff is happening!

  2. I enjoy going to Earshot. There is always a good mix of used and new vinyl. Phred and Adam do a nice job following up on those hard to find records you are trying to track down.

  3. Earshot is good if you want to buy record day things early and block out people who are willing to wait till the actual day. Any other location is my vote.

  4. Underdog has the best vinyl selection in Winston-Salem by far! And there is no one nicer or more knowledgeable than Jonathan! Plus who can resist that precious mascot, Madge!

  5. Underdog is the only place I shop. Not only are the prices the best but I can call and have something held and special ordered. Then owner Jonathan isnt just the best shop owner ever but he becomes your friend! Looooove Underdog!

  6. Underdog because it embodies all that’s great about a true independent store: friendly owner who gets to know your tastes, fair prices, great selection.

  7. I adore Underdog, and supporting and watching this small but mighty record shop grow over its short history. Jonathan is friendly, fast, and his prices are absolutely fair, better than comparable and better-known independent record shops in Asheville.

  8. Underdog is the best record store in Winston. Jonathan is fantastic — friendly and professional. I really can’t say enough good things.

  9. Well, the link won’t let me vote. But if it’s worth anything CFBGs in Greensboro has a great selection, local art on the walls, knowledgeable staff, troves of dollar bins for the record hunter, and a great location surrounded by other local budding businesses.

  10. I have been going to Earshot for quite a while and I always find something great. THey also have an excellent collection of new vinyl. Thanks to Phred and Adam.

  11. Underdog is definitely the best around. Jonathan makes you feel welcome and always has great music recommendations. Such a fun place to visit and there is always new stuff to check out.

  12. The best record shop is one that supports the discovery of new albums that help expand your collection and your musical experience. I am grateful for the excellent shops we have here in the Triad and their fantastic owners.
