Camden’s Best Record Stores
Fri 5 Aug
REFRESH YOUR VINYL COLLECTION AT THE HOME OF LIVE MUSIC
Whether you’re after reggae classics, second-hand Motown LPs or classic punk rock records, we’ve got it all. Since NW1 emerged at the centre of the London music scene in the early 1970s, Camden’s been a destination for music makers and fans – and our record shops are tribute to that rich history.
Here we spotlight the best. Let the rummaging commence.
Massive International has been a reggae lover’s Camden Market staple since 1989. Packed full of roots and reggae vinyl and merchandise, the staff lives and breathes the genre so tap them up for recommendations.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Soldiers
Rock ‘n’ Roll Soldiers is a one-stop destination for punk fans, with rare finds to fill the gaps in your collection and ‘try before you buy’ turntables. It’s also packed to bursting with classic band t-shirts.
Soul, funk and acid jazz are the specialty at Disc Disciples, so 70s and 80s disco beats are always in abundance. Everything is organised by genre and CDs and cassette tapes (whoa!) are even in stock.
Camden Lock Vinyl
Expect to come across the best new music, rare editions, forgotten classics, greatest hits, little known b-sides and extraordinary sleeve art you’ll want to frame. And if you can’t find what you’re looking for on the day? Chat to the staff, they’ll try and source it for you.
