Best Record Store 

Earwaxx Records

6410 North Oak Trafficway, Gladstone | 816-436-9299

Michael Parks, the actor whom Quentin Tarantino cast in the Kill Bill movies and rescued from obscurity, also sings. This fact was unknown to us until we paid a visit to Earwaxx Records and came across two albums that Parks recorded when he starred in Then Came Bronson, a short-lived television show. Specializing in vinyl, Earwaxx is a trove of the mostly forgotten as well as the eminently familiar. (Elvis and the Beatles have their own crates.) Near the reggae and comedy sections is a box marked "just for fun," a treasure chest containing, among other oddities, an album of standards that Jerry Lewis released in 1956. The only way to leave the store empty-handed — Tom Jones Live at Caesar's Palace for $1.99! — is not to have a turntable at home. Even then, though, geek worlds collide: The store also trades in Star Wars collectibles.
