Best Used-Records Bin

Jive Time Records

Every box marked $1 sitting outside a record store is stuffed with classic rock. There are so many Led Zeppelin, Beatles, and Bruce Springsteen LPs in those bins, you could use them to re-side your house. What makes a used-record box truly great is its commitment to other genres. And one afternoon at Jive Time Records in Fremont produced albums by jazz greats Wynton Marsalis and Herbie Hancock, the cast of Sesame Street, even Richard Strauss' Thus Spake Zarathustra. Rounding out your Elton John collection on the cheap isn't a bad thing; but doing it at a place where you can also pick up Yul Brynner in The King and I is much better. —Laura Onstot 3506 Fremont Ave. N., 632-5483, jivetimerecords.com
