Small Business Saturday Spotlight: Albums on The Hill

When you think of The Hill, there is one business that is consistently synonymous with 13th Street- Albums of The Hill. Owner Andy Schneidkraut is not only a business owner, but a true legend and Boulder's Obi Wan Kenobi of music. Nothing short of a music guru Andy, knows everything there is to know about The Hill, vinyl, concerts and well...Life. A unique shopping experience in the fullest, strolling the aisles of Albums is a history lesson, and the perfect place to pick up a special holiday gift. 

Andy, how long have been open on The Hill? The store has been on the Hill approximately 40 years, I've owned it 27 years, since November 1987 What's your favorite thing about The Hill?You never know what the day will bring. Your musical menu pick, please? An array of Singer-Songwriter Tapas, followed by a funkalicious visit to my salad days and a minestrone of oldies but goodies, an entree of classic bop jazz vinyl, with sides of down and dirty rice blues, a soulful and spiritual melange of roots vegetables, topped off with a twangy trad country dessert, whipped cream and other delights, finished with the complex, but subtle and melodic sweetness of an exotic world port. Mangia! Thanks Andy, enough said.
