  • World's remotest record shop

    http://www.smithjournal.com.au/blogs...y-record-store

    "If it wasn’t for Batbold Bavu, Mongolia probably wouldn’t have record store. A music obsessive whose hobby is sampling music, Bavu opened his store in Ulaanbaatar with only the 3000 pieces of vinyl he’d bought and scavenged through 10 years of collecting.

    His shop is called Dund Gol, and stocks an eclectic collection that traverses the globe in its influences, from Mongolia to Brazil and both sides of geo-political spectrum (state-sponsored Soviet-era music is well represented).

    As you’d expect from a diamond in the rough like this, visiting the most isolated record store in the world has become a pilgrimage for some collectors, who are drawn in by the promise of rare music. American and European customers form the majority of his client base......."

    Sounds well worth a visit if you're in the vicinity

    Is that a 'Lionel Richie - Dancing on the Ceiling' I see lurking behind his head, a holy grail!

    Seriously though I'd love a mooch around his shop!

      Wow! Wonder if he has any Khoomi 78s?

      Everyone tear down your own little wall
      That keeps you from being a part of it all
      Because you've got to be one with the one and all
      You've just got to be close to it all

        When I read it was in Mongolia, I immediately thought of having to ride my stallion across the great Steppes for 2-3 days to get there. I guess that's the Mongolia one normally sees on TV documentaries so that;s the image I had in my mind.

          I know Mongolia is remote in a global context, but this shop is in the capital city - a city of 1.3plus million people, which has an international airport. Not that remote. I wonder where the remotest shop is, furthest away from large population centres? Australia? South America? Canada?

            My guess is New Zealand (city of Auckland). 49 km further away from Sydney than Perth is from Adelaide, making it the most remote city in the world.

            One example:

              Yes, but having been there, I can testify that you do have to ride a horse into the city centre if arriving by plane.

                  Now that is cool! I wish you could do that from Heathrow.

                    I would consider Puskas Musikk in Alta in the north of Norway to be one of the more remote stores in Europe.
                    Alta has population 14.000 and is loacted 200 km or so south of North Cape.
                    21 hours drive to Oslo (through Sweden to avoid the fjords).
