Music freak Bucks Burnett opens vintage record store in Deep Ellum

More retail action in Deep Ellum, this time of a musical bent. Longtime Dallas music maven and all-round colorful figure Bucks Burnett will open Cloud 8 Music, a vintage record store at 3100 Main St. on Saturday, November 9.

No stranger to fame, Burnett has been wheeling and dealing vinyl for decades. He's founder of Dallas' Eight Track Museum, a vast tribute to the 8-track tape, and is known for having cultivated a close personal friendship with Tiny Tim. He previously owned Fourteen Records on Greenville Avenue.

For Cloud 8, Bucks is teaming up with Jordan Galliano and Charmaine Schulz, former owner of the Deep Ellum Postal Center. The store will occupy the space behind Deep Ellum Postal & Grocer.

Fronted by Burnett and Galliano, the store will feature a unique collection of records, videos, memorabilia and 8-tracks. The space will also house Schulz's Reborn Retro, selling vintage items found in the deepest corners of Texas.

"I want this store to be different," Burnett said in a release. "We are creating an authentic underground music store experience."

Cloud 8 Music will definitely be different as far as hours: It's open Saturdays only, 11 am to 3 pm, and other days by appointment only.
