Interesting shops throughout Europe

Post by Fran »

Well, holiday season is nearly here, and I expect many will visit various parts of the EU over the next while. I thought it would be interesting to post a few locations worth visiting in some EU locations (and maybe further afield?)

I have two:

Chicago: dusty groove records and reckless records - good deals to be got in both locations and both are quite close together.

Antwerp: Chelsea records, Backtrack records, and lots of very early blues at the record collector.

Spain: I see this place on youtube every now and then, might be a good place to visit https://audiomarbella.com/

I have been recently in Amsterdam and visited the Concerto record store: impressive!

Some lovely vintage kit there, but it's overpriced in my opinion. For example. there's a Clearaudio Emotion turntable with a Shure M75 there for €1,499. I bought a second hand one with a Sumiko Blue Point from Noel Cloney a few years back for €600.
Having said that, some of the seventies kit still has the looks!
