We Buy
  • Craig Kallman - Chairman/CEO, Atlantic Records Group

    I have been buying from Gary and Wayne at Rockaway for over 25 years. They turn up amazing records and memorabilia and price it completely fairly. They are wonderful to deal with and have extraordinary customer service. They go above and beyond for their patrons and really look out for them. I highly recommend visiting their store if you are in Los Angeles.

  • STEVE RESNIK - MUSIC INDUSTRY EXECUTIVE

    I have been doing business with Wayne at Rockaway for more than thirty years. I have referred some thirty to forty music industry executives and friends to Rockaway to sell their collections. Not one, I repeat - Not One - has ever come back with anything other than glowing comments and results. I have found Rockaway to be the most honest and most knowledgeable company re: Rock 'n' Roll memorabilia and music of the many other companies that I have dealt with.

  • LENNY BRONSTEIN - HEAVY LENNY PROMOTIONS, LAS VEGAS

    A number of years ago as I was downsizing, it broke my heart to sell my vinyl collection which started back in 1954 and grew to almost 85,000 albums. A close friend recommended Wayne at Rockaway as honest and dedicated to the music. Well, he exceeded all my expectations from day one. His remuneration was more than fair, but what made him a real mensch was coming back a few times with an additional check for records that sold beyond his expectations. When I left Santa Monica and had to sell my nearly 40,000 cd's, he was wonderful once again. I can't give higher superlatives to Wayne & Rockaway. He cares...he knows...he respects.

  • ALLAN MASON - EXECUTIVE MUSIC PRODUCER/MUSIC SUPERVISOR

    Gary Johnson is the creme de la creme, state of the art, & guru of honesty & fair play when the subject has anything to do with LPs, 45s & memorabilia . Here is one example. I have sent many deejays & radio friends to Gary . They were looking to sell a few items. Gary 's pricing was SO FAIR & HONEST, they sold him everything. They called me & thanked me up the wazoo. Examples like this have been going on for more than 25 years--OVER & OVER again. Rockaway Records is HAPPENING!! Thanks for taking care of people the way that you do---ME INCLUDED!!

  • SPENCE BERLAND - SPENCE BERLAND AND ASSOCIATES

    Eureka! You have found him, an honest man. Wayne is not only the most honest person I have ever met, I mean ever, he is one of the nicest people on the planet, He is ALWAYS fair, honest and accommodating. He is a true expert in the business he has loved for his whole life. I have had several occasions when I found an additional check in the mail from Wayne for items I have already accepted a price for. I would always trust Rockaway. I consider him a life long friend and a brother.

  • MICHAEL OCHS - MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT PHOTO ARCHIVIST

    What I can say about Rockaway is that they've been my go-to dealers for well over two decades. Not only have I always found them to be fair and honest; but, after recommending them to innumerable friends, I've received nothing but thanks. I continue to recommend them unconditionally.
