Welcome to Decatur CD
In addition to thousands of new and used compact discs, we've got loads of vinyl, DVDs and more. We boast Atlanta's best jazz selection and a probably-unhealthy Mike Watt obsession as well. Let us know what you need.

New Releases 4/30/13
It's the last release week of April! And, as you may have noticed, we didn't get around to posting this until May. Ah well. As they say, "April release dates bring May blog posts." They say that, right? No? Cool, we'll show ourselves out...

Record Store Day Photos
Hey, did you guys hear? We had a band on the roof Saturday. Expect more of that in the future. For now, though, photos!
And finally, a great crowd shot from a great customer, Noel:
New Releases 4/23/13
Everyone recover from Record Store Day? We think we have...or maybe almost have is more accurate. We know one thing for sure: italics rule. At any rate, what a blast! The El Caminos on the roof, a line of music lovers around the building, delicious beer from our friends at Sierra Nevada and New Holland. Oh yeah, and a ton of great vinyl! We were honored to sell it to the best customers in the world.
But it's a new week, and with that, new releases. A relatively light week, though. Perhaps the recording industry is a little RSD-hungover as well. Check out the list below, and we'll see you soon:
Steve Martin/Edie Brickell
The Chapin Sisters
Har Mar Superstar

Atlanta Mess-Around Turns Five
It's almost that time of year again—time to gorge ourselves on punk rock for two full days. Oh yes, friends: the Atlanta Mess-Around will be here in a couple weeks. Not only that, but the scrappy EAV fest is turning five this year! We can only assume that means there'll be cake served up on unplayable, scratched-up Killed By Death comps. But birthday treats or no, there are tons of great bands coming to town. Los Vigilantes, Apache Dropout, Parting Gifts, The Ettes, Mean Jeans, the list goes on an on, and includes local folks like Turf War, Ghost Bikini and the newly-minted GHB. The whole thing is capped by what will once again be a delightful, hangover-curing dunch set from Greg Cartwright at The EARL. We'll be there. Will you?
New Releases 4/9/13 and 4/2/13
Twice the fun, we've got two (weeks' worth of releases) in one (blog post)! Blame it on the pollen.

Record Store Day Releases!
Believe it or not, the countdown to the right is accurate. We're only three weeks from Record Store Day. As such, we've started to get a lot of questions about the exclusive releases. A full list can be found here. We'll be getting the overwhelming majority of the titles on that list, so, carve out some time to browse and get excited! We certainly are.
