Best Reord Shops In Australia?

Tue Jul 12, 2005 12:48 am

I will spending a week in Sydney and another week in Melbourne soon.

What are the best new and second hand record stores in each city - also the the best music bookshops.

Will be staying at Parramata and Mornington respectively - but will have a rental car so suburban stores are OK within reason - like I don't consider Newcastle is an outer suburb of Syney as my Aussie boss insists.

In Sydney Time Warp records and Red Eye are the two shops I always had to drop in on.

I used to live in Morninton. There should be a few nice shops in Frankston (There was a really good CD shop in the road behind the cinema) as that has really built up. But in Melbourne itself I always had to go to Gaslight records. There were a few others that I can't remember there name, but they were the main ones for me.

Book stores? I always waited for the movie!!! :oops:
