Jerry’s Records and Lobos Management’s Hobart Place

Posted on: August 27, 2012

In a world where digital media has become the preferred means of transporting and distributing audio files, the vinyl album has become nearly obsolete in our iPod culture. With MP3s loaded onto our smart phones, bumping through the USB ports in our dashboards, and stored meticulously in our iTunes libraries, the record player is a nearly forgotten piece of ancient technology left only to audiophiles and special collectors. For those who still value the sounds captured on grooved, etched wax, Jerry’s Records in Squirrel Hill is a monument to the lost format. The large storefront on Murray Avenue houses over one million full length albums and nearly as many 45s, EPs, and 78s – certainly one of the largest collections in the country. Every genre of music is represented on the shelves of Jerry’s Records: country and western, oldies, rock and roll, opera, punk, jazz, holiday; Jerry’s has it all. In 2010, Rolling Stone magazine named this Squirrel Hill institution one of the “best record stores in the USA,” a remarkable title for an unassuming record store in a residential Pittsburgh neighborhood.  In addition to the massive collection of records, Jerry’s also services, repairs, and restores classic turntables and console units.

 

Lobos Management’s Hobart Place is just a few short blocks from Jerry’s Records, making it a convenient location for record collectors and music fans alike. In addition to the record store, Murray Avenue is also home to Acoustic Music Works, a high end instrument store dedicated to the sale of strings: guitars, mandolins, banjos, etc. Squirrel Hill has everything that a music lover or musician could ever need, all just blocks from the front doors of Lobos Management’s Hobart Place.
