Best records stores in London?

 
  • Best records stores in London?

    I'm an American in Switzerland. Going to London this summer.

    I would like to pick up some 50's rockabilly, 60's soul/garage/psych/classic rock, 70's classic rock/punk/post-punk/singer-songwriter and 80's post-punk/shoegaze/brit-pop preferably on orig pressing, but will consider represses.

    Been to Sister Ray's which I like. Anyone know of other good stores with a big selection and if possible, not brutal prices?

    thanks! Doug

    I was walking down the street with my friend and he said, "I hear music", as if there is any other way you can take it in. You're not special, that's how I receive it too. I tried to taste it but it did not work.

    I went round a few for Record Store Day. Check out:

    Flashback - http://flashback.co.uk/
    Reckless Records (a bit further up from Sister Ray on the opposite side of the street) - http://www.reckless.co.uk/
    Rough Trade (East and West) - http://www.roughtraderecords.com/
    Intoxica - http://www.intoxica.co.uk/
    Honest Jon's - http://www.honestjons.com/shop.php

    If it helps, this is a map I pulled together in advance to help me navigate my way on RSD:

    I didn't get to the last two and I found others along the way. It was an expensive but very satisfying day!

    Happy hunting!

    The Music and Video Exchanges are often good, too. There's one near Sister Ray and Reckless Records.

  • the music video exchange in Camden is a good shop, go to the basement and mind the step. :)

    I second Rough Trade has some good chart vinyl if you want that stuff. Of course it has the rarer stuff too.
