Reader: "Black & Red should definitely make the top 5"

It takes more than merely having a great selection, being in a prime location, offering reasonable prices and having an informed and friendly staff to be considered as one of the best places to buy records. According to @DenverUltigirl, our commenter of the day, the staff must be extra friendly like Black & Red's, like, say, being willing to give a high school kid a lift home after a metal show. Oh, and she also thought we blew it by making Wax Trax second on our Denver/Boulder's five best places to buy records list and even more so by omitting Black & Red entirely (a few of our Facebook friends agreed).
