  • Online record stores

    quick straw poll for all of you... which online record stores do you buy from, and why? who do you recommend? who regularly stocks quality funk 45 reissues?

    some obvious ones:
    dusty groove
    turntable lab
    http://www.blaxploitation.com
    Chops for show, groove for dough.

      I mainly use eclipse, forced exposure and aquarius but thats &#39;cos I want to keep up on modern psych stuff like Six Organs of Admittance, Acid Mothers Temple and Circle.

        in addition to some of the above: http://boomkat.com for the weeee-erd stuff, although they are a bit like DustyGroove in that their reviews suggest everything is brilliant

          Saying everything is great is the big failing of dusty groove and a pile of other online places.

          I&#39;ve know some techno/electro heads who rate boomkat pretty highly.

          I might check out the disque site as they used to have a branch in Dublin that was great...till it closed last year amongst much wialing and nashing of teeth.

            Just got a nice cheap copy of Rosko &#39;Peacemaker&#39; from www.superflyrecords.com and there service was very good. http://www.normanrecords.com/ is good for new stuff. The aforementioned Turntable Lab are always good (my second plug today). www.action-records.co.uk replaced a damaged record no problem. I&#39;ve used www.thespacebar.co.uk/ a lot too. I&#39;ve never had any problems with using www.gemm.com either. Oh, and Al&#39;s Tracks (http://www.birdpages.co.uk/directory/alstracks.htm) gave me a free record because it was in worse condition than described. Top people.

                Hi all&#33;

                Anyone come across this site: www.recordkingz.com
                I suppose it&#39;s good if you&#39;ve got the money

                  Firstly I&#39;d like to big up gdm records. There&#39;s probably not much of interest on their site to the average Vulture but they sold me a Roundtable &#39;Spinning Wheel&#39; for 15 quid which I thought was very reasonable. Especially since they don&#39;t appear to grade any of their stock and I had to ask it&#39;s condition - stone mint.



                  Apart from them and the above, the usual suspects...

                  Craig Moerer and recordsbymail are always helpful and pleasant (never a problem for them to &#39;adjust&#39; the customs slip, as we were just discussing).

                  Anglo American can be erratic in their pricing (sometimes to your advantage ).

                  System and Airpower from Netsounds have sold me some good stuff at good prices, as have Reddingtons (despite their general &#39;if we don&#39;t know what it&#39;s worth we&#39;ll stick £10 on it just in case&#39; policy).

                  And not forgetting Mark Res and Jazzman.

                  I only use Dusty Groove when all else fails, and then promptly regret the decision when I get stung with the customs fee.

                    Oh, and despite the occasional hyperbolic eBay description and clunky website, Eastside Records have also proved useful...

                      that Recordkingz site is Julian from the Creators if i remember correctly, aka &#39;Recordgirl&#39; on Ebay. don&#39;t think i&#39;ve ever made it past the stupid flash intro

                        They have a very nice selection of Bollywood LPs for a start...



                        And technically record-girl is Julian&#39;s girlfriend, not the man himself. The idea of Juliano Creator in drag is just scary...

                            I love Anglo American&#39;s screwed up search engine, which means that if you know what you&#39;re after, you can find plenty there at a good price... I hope they ain&#39;t reading this&#33;

                              I second Bongolia&#39;s choice of Boomkat or Pelicanneck as it is also known, Pennyblack are also worth a look fer yer leftfield kinda gear. Rough trade are cool too, very eclectic with a large reggae selection, which is nice......
