The Record Exchange just won Best of Boise for the 10th year in a row, but it can also add "Best in America" to its list of awards.
"It would be easy to write the same description for both stores. Important members of the music community convening in stores in historically rooted cities; mainstream but thorough in their selections and keen on providing support to local acts," wrote Phil Gallo, the co-author of Record Store Days: From Vinyl To Digital And Back and a senior correspondent for Billboard.
"The Record Exchange is honored to be included on this list. After more than 34 years in business, it's rewarding to receive this kind of national recognition," Michael Bunnell, owner and founder of The Record Exchange wrote in a press release.
Top honors in the nation went to Amoeba Records, a small chain in the Bay Area.
