Back story to my review.. my son will be 13 in February & he LOVES music. He has an iPod that he won’t touch anymore because his Gramma found an old, working discman she had & he took it over. He thin...ks it’s the coolest thing ever. For Christmas, his dad gave him a record player and all he really asked for was a Walkman. My kid is old school. I didn’t get around to ordering the Walkman soon enough & it wouldn’t have made it by Christmas so I opted out & gave him cash & told him we had a date at Ralph’s Records when we got to Lubbock. I told him all about Ralph’s Records & how I bought all of my concert tickets there when I was 16 years old & somehow had my mom talked into letting me go to shows on weeknights at Liquid 2000. � Anyway, we walked in the door & my kid found a Walkman. � It literally made his LIFE. He also purchased 2 CDs & a cassette with his Christmas money. Not sure if my son did it or not but one of the CDs was cracked & I told him we would try & exchange it before we left back to Houston the next day. We stopped in on our way out of Lubbock & they didn’t have any in stock but were expecting a shipment the next day at 1. They were so nice about it, even if my son cracked it, they said they could exchange it. Well, he couldn’t find anything the same price so I asked if there was any way they could mail it if I paid shipping. No problem & he even took care of the shipping for us. Thank you so much for making my kid’s first experience at Ralph’s Records a great one. I have lots of great memories there & I am so happy my “old school” son will, too. Cheers to a great 2018, guys! You’re awesome & we will be back on our next visit to Lubbock! See More

Went to Ralph's today and got a TON of great music and DVDs at a fantastic value. The staff is always friendly and very helpful. Even Josh....however, it was brought to my attention that Josh can be... an idiot. He thinks that if music doesn't have lyrics, then it is not music. Hey Josh, do you mean that Miles Davis didn't make music? See More

Always a fun time going to Ralph's, Chris and the rest of the staff are helpful and easy going, selection is great and always changing, and most importantly, it is a a well-run, long time Lubbock smal...l business. If you haven't been, you are missing out. Thank y'all for having the best selection on used console parts and movies! ✌ See More

A few years ago I wanted to add to my already collection of vintage rock/ heavy metal albums. Ralphs has everything you need and if they don't have it, they can try to get it for you!

Part of the time, I felt I was back in the 70s when record stores were popping! Loved it! I'm glad they separate the movie and game room from the record room. Employees are very helpful!

Took 14 games to Ralphs last week few ps4 ps3 xbox 360 games and all in good condition. This short stubby dude looked at them all kind of threw them around on the counter like they where junk and me $16. Hell I would've just went to gamestop that guy was being a prick to me the moment I walked in... and no I didn't take his offer See More

Travelled to Ralph's with my wife all the way from West Odessa yesterday. My birthday is in 2 weeks, but we went this weekend because she knows how much I love and collect vinyl.
I had been to Ralp...h's several times before, and was never able to spend more than 30 minutes there before I had to go.
Yesterday, I was able to spend a good 4-5 hours scouring as much vinyl as I could possibly handle.
Got a massive bundle (59 records) that hovered in the $300 range and was given a killer discount on top. Highly recommended for those who have the time to be able to dig deep. Very satisfied with our experience there!
Thanks guys!

Ralph Records is my favorite record store along with Waterloo Records in Austin, Bills in Dallas and Cactus Records and Houston. They are all four neighborhood stores like you don't find anymore. Ral...phs is a specially funky because you can wander the mysterious aisles and find treasures that even Ralph doesn't know he has. See More

Ralph's Records has been serving the community for many years and offers the best selection of music and videos you can find anywhere. They also try to beat everyone's prices on new vinyl and CD inclu...ding chain stores! They are very helpful when I am shopping there and order stuff for me that is not in stock. I'm gonna miss this place when I move. I highly recommend you check this place out! See More

So my boyfriend and I go in here a lot, mainly for movies and the service is amazing. I think the guy we usually talk to is named Ian and he's super great with deals and a conversation. But this is my... favorite place to buy movies because it's really reasonable! See More

Its a great store for music with decent prices which is why the store is good. However, do not buy or sell video games from this store. One of the employees scams people and makes up prices. Tried to ...sell Fire Emblem on the GameCube (Keep in mind I ended up selling it on eBay for 75 dollars) and they offered me fucking five dollars for it with case and manual. They dont test their games as well and buys fucking terrible 3rd party stuff for older consoles. Its on par with Gamestop honestly. See More

I've been going here since I was a kid. I've found many gems there that I otherwise would of never known about thanks to Mr Doug Stapp. If you're into rock at all he can point you towards some cool ab...stract stuff. Thanks to Doug and Ralph's records for the expanse in my music collection! See More

I make at least a monthly visit up here. Employees are super chill, almost always have the hookup on concert tickets, and have the best used music choices in town. A dude helped me order a Municipal W...aste album when they didn't have it in store. \m/ See More

Really nice people. Good, fair prices they had so many LP's and 45's I could spend all day in Ralph's and still not go through it all. I will definitely come back when I'm back in Lubbock.

Cool "gets" from time to time. Service varies greatly-sometimes hippie pandas give you blank stares, and sometimes you get entertainment savants who genuinely want to help. Tighten the ship Ralph.
