    5 star review  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!

    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 :)

      A great store for new and used vinyl, as well as new and used books. I make the trip regularly from Ottawa and it's always worth it - Great selection of new stuff, and always a lot of gems in used. Lot's of late 80's...More

  •   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.

      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!
