Solid State


Location: Solid State Vinyl Records – 4022 46th St

Not just Black Friday, it was also Record Store Day. Hannah and Phil Borreson have run Solid State records and gifts for almost a full year at 46th & Minnehaha. Besides stacks of vinyl, they have cassettes, CDs, vintage shirts, stereo equipment, and hip stocking stuffers — not to mention a vast knowledge of obscure and rare music. Phil’s holding a blue vinyl pressing of local band Falcon Arrow on top of a rare Michael Jackson LP with a rat on the cover.
