The vinyl record never went away; last year, vinyl outsold CDs. Not bad for a dead format. With the demise of long-time independent record store Bebop in 2011, one may be left wondering where to buy music. Here are my local haunts for records:

T-Bones Records & Cafe

2101 Hardy St., Hattiesburg, 601-583-0099

T-Bones has become a local hotspot for new and used records. It also features live music and a full-service cafe. While worth a road trip, the guys from T-Bones are usually at Jackson's 4 the Record vinyl swap (the next swap is Sept. 28 at Hal & Mal's).

Morningbell Records & Studios

622 Duling Ave., Suite 205A, 769-233-7468

Opened in 2012, Morningbell carries new and used LPs along with turntables and accessories. It hosts live shows and carries an assortment of sodas.

Little Big Store

201 E. Main St.,


Located in Raymond's old train depot, Little Big Store spoils when it comes to sheer volume. It carries a wide variety of used records. It's a lot to sort through, so plan on spending a while.

The End of All Music

1423 N. Lamar Blvd., Oxford, 662-281-1909

This Oxford shop carries new and used records in a spacious building with a cool atmosphere. It usually has specials, and the selection is excellent.
