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.
