Want List Records

Want List Records is a record store in Newton, MA, run by Dave Belson and Brian Coleman. We offer well curated collections of used records for sale. As well as a small selection of new releases.

We are always buying records & tapes

  • Do you have records you haven’t listened to in years?
  • Are you moving soon and need to downsize?
  • Are you cleaning out a relative’s house and found records?

Our goal is to make your record selling experience a hassle-free, honest and satisfying one. No pressure, no low-ball offers, no tricks to try and lower the prices we pay. We want you to be as happy as the new owners of your albums will be, with our help in between.

Call 617-420-6002 or send us an email at shop@wantlistrecords.com with questions.


It’s all about the condition

Collectors that buy records are very particular, and have developed a system over the years to grade each album based on the condition. Records that are in poor condition or are common titles, are priced by volume. Records that are in good condition and have an appeal to other collectors, are more valuable, and they can be worth up to $5 each.

If you have a well curated collection of Jazz, Blues, R&B, Classical, vintage Rock, Soul, World music, Reggae, etc. and they are in excellent condition, we could pay up to 50% of the resale value.

Records damaged by mold, heavy smoking, water, heat, or animals do not have value anymore. Remember what we mentioned earlier about how particular collectors can be.

Great selection of new and old records. Small so you can check out just about everything but pretty much guaranteed to find something you like. They have a high standard for what they want to sell which means when a record isn't near mint they severely lower the price of it.

A lovely new record store, which greater Boston needed. Most excellent curation of selection, from jazz, hip hop, reggae, world, rock and much more. You will find lots of stuff you won’t see anywhere else at killer prices to boot. David and Brian are great guys with a great knowledge of music. Go check it out!

Whelp, the Greater Boston area has a brand new record store and boy is it a good one. David Belson and Brian Coleman have put together an amazing space with some pretty incredible records. They have great selections of jazz, rock, soul, reggae, hip hop and some other weirder things too. Not only will you walk away with some great finds but you’ll probably learn about something new in the process. Both guys are incredibly knowledgeable and willing to share in what they know. I can honestly say that I have a new favorite shop to visit when I’m out Boston way. Do yourself a favor and pay them a visit, you won’t be disappointed.
