*Sheds a tear for Djangos*
I LOVED Djangos LOVED! But a corporation bought them out about 4-5 years ago and tried to make a chain and streamline the place. When they did that the first thing they did was get rid of all those fantastic wood crates of records that were always there as you went up the ramp. Then they stopped ordering the more esoteric stuff and went mainstream resembling a blockbusters video with some music thrown in. Needless to say, only about a year and half after the corporation took over they went belly up. Unfortunately at the time I was not really into the exotica music or may have found some bargains. Although I am pretty sure if it had a kick ass Hawaiian themed cover to it I would have bought it regardless of the music, and I used to go through those crates with a fine tooth comb. I did find some awesome soundtracks, and some heavy metal but that is another tale.

EEEEK! Records was also another pretty good place, along with Gator Music but they have both been gone for years as well. Portland is changing fast, and it isn't all for the better. Too many people are moving here from other states to escape the crowding/noise/pollution and bringing the problems with them unwilling to let go of the habits that caused their old places to be uninhabitable (rant over).

Thanks for sharing. If I ever get up Washington way I will have to scope out the place if you give me the exact name and general area. Hundreds you say? Arrr! Sounds like there be treasure in Washington!
