Music enthusiasts take note: if you continue reading this column, be prepared to spend freely and uncontrollably for hours on end at what is arguably the best independent record store in the region and among the best in the country.With that said, you might already be familiar with the drawing power of the Princeton Record Exchange and what it offers at 20 S.
