Jive Time News

Jive Time in Rolling Stone!

We were featured in Rolling Stone issue #308 as one of the Top 25 Record Stores in the USA, along with other Seattle shops Easy Street and Sonic Boom.

“Located in Seattle’s charming Fremont district, Jive Time is a modest-seeming local store whose holdings belie its size.” Read the entire article›

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap

Unimpressed by the overpriced products on the market we developed our own brand of record cleaner. Our Groove Solution works magic on your vinyl with only the safest ingredients and because we prepare and bottle the solution ourselves we’re able to pass the savings on to you! Our unique spray bottle makes applying the cleaner a breeze. A light spray for dusty records or several shots for the downright dirty. We recommend using a soft 100% cotton cloth to clean the vinyl and absorb the cleaner (an old T-shirt, cut into squares works perfectly), wiping in the direction of the groove. 4oz bottle is now only $5.99! (8oz bottles are also available for $9.99)

Jive Time on Flickr

Check out our photostream on Flickr! Long time customers will see some old familiar faces here as the pictures span the ten years we’ve been open. We’re a little more lived-in looking now but that’s a good thing we think. If you have pictures of Jive Time that you’d like to share please email them to us so we can post them here and on Flickr.

Greetings from Tokyo!

On our Facebook page, we asked for pictures of you wearing our one of our tees and Allay Iwase of Tokyo really delivered! Thanks for the kind words and great photo Allay. We look forward to your next visit to Seattle.

Jive Time Wooden LP Crates

Who remembers Peaches’ Records? They’re gone but not forgotten. We’ve brought back the Peaches’ style wooden LP crate! They’re slightly smaller so that they’re easier to lift (each crate holds approximately 100 LP’s), with our own custom Jive Time Records crate label and currently available at our store. (A special thanks to Dean, our crate builder, RJ, our label-gluer, and Shawn, for the killer label design).
