    5 star review  First visit to your location and definitely will not be my last. The shop is well organized and clean. Picked up some records and an Okki Nokki RCM. Great experience, worth the drive. Already looking forward to the next visit.

    5 star review  All I have to say is awesome! Christine gave me so much help finding the records I needed with such unbeatable prices. They even offered to look at my record player if I couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. You guys are just plain awesome :)

    5 star review  Books & music. What more could one ask for? The especially great thing about this place is that it is curated properly. Of course they have all the usual suspects on vinyl- the Beasties, Bowie and the Hip- but other lesser known gems as well like Car Seat Headrest and Jason Isbell and all the genres including jazz, rock, indie, soul and rn'b. There are high quality turntables, record sleeves and vinyl travel cases, used cds, used 45"s, lp's and cassettes (blanks & classics). The second half of the store is done up in a similar fashion- new, used, classics, kids, y/a and book related stuff like journals and cards. Although the description of the book section is shorter it is still just as awesome as the music side. I left with 4 books and no vinyl. That's unusual for me but a true testament to the excellence that is Backbeat. Oh, and dude is very knowledgeable and nice and was playing the Stone Roses debut. It may not be gigantic but there is always something that makes u stop and say, "aw man, i gotta have that." What more could one ask for in a book/record store? Nuthin'.

  •   My favorite vinyl and book shop!

    Tonnes of new and used. I make a trip from Ottawa regularly to check out what's new in the used section, lot's of late 80's early 90's gems.

    Also a great place to enjoy Record Store Day events without the line ups!

      Love this place!  The owner is a true small business owner who cares a lot about customer service - he jotted my name down months and months ago for an album I wanted, and actually contacted me when it came in!  Very impressed, and I will never, ever visit Perth without making this my first stop!  This place is absolutely wonderful.  Thanks again for Astral Weeks - its a beauty.
