Any Elvis fans in Barcelona?

Wed Jan 01, 2014 12:28 am

Hi Guys and happy new year to everyone.
I will spend 4 days in Barcelona next February and since I've never been there before I thought I'd ask if anyone who lives there would like to meet up and chat Elvis!
I can speak English and perfect Argentinean Spanish.
Anyone?
See you guys there!

Love,
Javi

Hi Mike,
You mean the Calle Tallers just off the top of Las Ramblas, although there are still a few shops there it is certainly not as good as it was a few years ago with several closing down. From time to time there are a few FTD releases but very overpriced. Up until a couple of years ago there was a great shop in Badalona(few minutes from Barcelona)called Memphis Records that stocked almost everything you would ever need but I think that now if they are still around it is mail order only.

Glad to see you are back, welcome again! 8). Yes, that was the street, it was 15 years ago the last time i was there. Regarding the Elvis shop in Badalona it was great but as you stated it closed two years ago :cry:. Bye for now :smt006.

As it happens I cut through there this morning on the way to a customer. One of the shops had the recently released Elvis on Tour vinyl set in the window at 105 euros. Yes it was sad that Memphis Records closed as it was a great place to get anything Elvis you were after. To be honest I am not sure if he still does mail order as he had a load of stock that he obviously needed to sell at some point.
Javilu, send me a pm regarding anything you get organised for your time in Barcelona.
