  • My hubby Dan and I are Tuesday regulars to Backbeat and can't imagine them not being there! Fabulous owners and they go the extra mile to find what you're looking for if they don't have it! We walked in today and he had 3 we'd been searching for, gotta love them <3

  • 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'.

    Love this store. Always find a treasure that transports me back to my 80's Goth days in the UK. Wish I could get there more often with more $'s. Such a lovely couple. Wish them a lifetime of success

    Worth the trip to Perth! Beautiful clean store. Everything was so organized and neat. The shop owner was very friendly and approachable. The prices on both used and new vinyl were very competitive. I left the store with some great scores and I will be back!

  • 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.

  •   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.
