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.

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.

Disc Disciples 

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.
