Serious Sounds, Etc. was established in 1991 out of an expressed
desire to provide the local South Park area of Houston with a retail
environment that catered to the African-American community of music
lovers, shoppers and buyers. Over the years, record stores across the
country have dwindled to only a handful, yet Serious Sounds has
managed to stay alive and thrive thanks to its extensive knowledge of
music, its supportive customer base and the meticulous personal
service offered to all who enter.
We offer a full array of music products including CD’s, Cassettes,
Vinyl, Custom Mix CD’S, Digital Downloads as well as mp3 and mp4 files
loaded onto USB drives. We also carry a variety of Books, Oils &
Fragrances in the form of Incense Burning Oils for home use, scented
Body Oils, Air Fresheners and Sage Smudge bundles.
There’s also an assortment of Artist t-shirts, Music & Vinyl related
Accessories, and occasionally when the opportunity arises and time
permits, we still throw concert/live music events, Artist Meet &
Greets and other really cool in store promotions.
The year 2021 will mark our 30th Anniversary in the same location and
as the only remaining Black-owned record store in Houston, TX. we will
continue to be a vital component and supplier for those individuals
seeking to purchase music goods and related services. Serious
Sounds, Etc. — A REAL Record Store & MORE doing our part to keep the
history and legacy of Black Music Alive!
