AFK Books & Records, Virginia Beach's grooviest record store has thousands of high-quality new and gently pre-enjoyed vinyl records. Pop, rock, punk, indie, blues, jazz, soul, country, bluegrass, metal, classical, soundtracks, comedy and more.
We check all of our pre-enjoyed vinyl records for quality and price accordingly, but if a rough one slips through the cracks (grooves?), we offer a money-back satisfaction guarantee on ALL pre-enjoyed products.

We would be glad to spin pre-enjoyed vinyl, before your purchase, and headphones are always available if the content may be objectionable to our younger store listeners.
Save big on vinyl at AFK Books & Records. We order direct from labels and pass the savings along to you. Folks tell us we even usually beat the prices of that "jungle site." We would also be happy to special order vinyl or CDs for you.
Pinched for funds? We have huge bins, filled with thousands of clean vinyl records priced between $1-$3.99. Also, whenever you buy a new condition vinyl record from AFK Books & Records, you can take an additional 25% off most pre-enjoyed books, movies or vinyl records in the store. Rinse and repeat!
BTW, we pay cash for pre-enjoyed vinyl in good condition. Just bring in a stack anytime and we'll usually have a quote ready in an hour or less. Free tea while you wait! We also take “free to good home” vinyl donations and will forward any vinyl we can't use to a charitable organization.
• Vinyl has artwork and liner notes you can actually read! Vinyl looks great on a coffee table and even better framed on a wall.

• Every pop and crackle adds character to the record's sound. You're not just experiencing the music, you're experiencing everything the vinyl has experienced. Alicia M.

• Many new artists (and veterans) package vinyl records with high quality MP3 and FLAC download codes, so you get the best of both the digital and physical worlds. We like to explore new artists with services like Spotify too, but nothing beats the high quality of vinyl or FLAC.

• That fresh vinyl smell. 'nuff said!

• I love picking up used vinyl and finding something else with it - a letter, picture, card, hand written lyrics, newspaper clipping. All of it tells more of the story of the music and those who enjoyed it previously. You get a little glimpse into their world and what that moment was like when they listened to that album. Alicia M.

• Great sound. I love the “warmth” and extended range of an uncompressed vinyl track. Truth is, most recently pressed vinyl has been first rendered on digital equipment, and then converted back to analog form. Don't let that deter you though as those “master” digital files are generally not compressed and the vinyl output is much richer than CDs or MP3 files. There are several musical purists who continue to master their music on analog equipment. AFK Books also has thousands of records pressed before the digital age.

• Vinyl is so cool for many reasons. It's old school and in some cases old school is very cool. I love the album art and the warm sound that vinyl has compared to CD's. Vinyl offers much more of a tactile experience than music played on iPods and MP3 players. To some degree, listening to records requires that you be in the same room where the record player is. As a result, you are more engaged in the music compared to listening to music on an iPod. With an iPod, you tend to be doing other things while listening to music and therefore less engaged in the music itself. J.M.

• Long-lasting freshness. If you bought CDs in the 1980's, and took good care of them, you may have noticed that the foil surface has started to deteriorate, making the disc unplayable. Your eyes are also probably bad enough by now that reading the small print on the CD liner notes is futile. If you bought vinyl in... errr... the 1930's, and took good care of them, you may have noticed that the vinyl still sounds absolutely incredible, just like it did in 1930 AND you can still read the liner notes, even in your nineties! John B.

• Vinyl records are easy to share with others, but we recommend holding a large deposit or driver's license until the “precious” has been returned.

• Easy to spin backwards for hidden satanic messages from zombiefied Paul McCartney.

So you ask, "Why Vinyl?" Haven't taken the plunge and want to know what all the fuss is about? Here's what our customers (and we!) say...
New releases and bestsellers at AFK Books!
AFK Books & Records also stocks rare and collectible vinyl and boxed sets. We sell a full line of turntables and accessories and are an authorized retailer for Music Hall, Jensen and Audio Technica.
Since they never really perfected the "in dash" vinyl
record player, we would be remiss to not mention
that we also sell thousands of coasters... errr... CDs. We also sell hundreds of music-related DVDs and books.
AFK Books & Records is a proud supporter of Record Store Day events. While you'll find rare and collectible vinyl every day at AFK Books & Records, on this special day we have access to an "ox-stunning" assortment of rare and limited edition vinyl. The next big event is April 22, 2017. Like us on facebook.com/afkbooks to stay informed!
Hundreds of jazz records including many first pressings.
