People’s Records

Located in downtown Arcata, People’s Records is a locally owned record store established in 1981. They have a wide selection of genres, new and used records, turntables, posters, DVDs, CDs, and what not. I was surprised to find records by Dan Melchior, one of my favorite garage rock artists – I’ve always had a hard time finding his records, even in Bay Area record stores. The friendly sales associate helped me locate Evening Star by Fripp & Eno, a classic ambient album released in 1975, which I ended up buying. I also purchased Dan Melchior’s 2003 release, This is Not the Medway Sound on vinyl.


Check out their website (, like them on Facebook (, and drop by the shop sometime (725 8th Street, Arcata, California).
