No clue what the clowns below are talking about! This place rocks – Used or new, who gives a hoot? Music is music, and Norman's has tons of it. Obviously our friend below is upset about getting fired, or whatever reason he isn't working there anymore. I walked into Norman's, looked around for about an hour, and walked out with about $100 worth of music, that I casually paid $30 for. The prices are right. Who gives a hoot if the items are re-packaged. If you're so worried about repackaging on records, then buy them on itunes and you won't worry about any packaging. Norman's is meant for music heads who like the physical product. I love the shop. Great place, loud tunes, good energy.
Where not to go to buy music – CDs are too expensive, especially because the majority of them are promos that have been resealed with their own machine. Limited selection for anything other than jazz and guitar rock. Owner promises orders and never delivers on it. Instead of "the customer is always right" methos, it's more "there is a sucker born every minute". They even sell obvious used CDs as new. The staff, in general, is nice, but don't ask for any recomendations or expect a nice welcome.
Not an eye-and-ear clinic, but a well-stocked used CD store. – On the Rack
Norman's Sound and Vision sells all forms of mainstream music on CD, and also boasts an extensive collection of world, Irish, reggae, techno, gospel and Cajun music. The jazz collection here is one of the most sophisticated in the city, and specializes in the otherwise unavailable, like out-of-print Blue Note discs. The super-stocked shop also sells videos and DVD's.
Two of a Kind
For those who live further uptown, Norman's Sound and Vision Too is located on Seventh Avenue between 23rd and 24th Streets.
