    great vinyl shop

    Post by MontanaWay on Sun May 04, 2014 11:25 pm

    so here I am now, Downunder, visiting mum in Melbourne Australia and found one of my old favorite used vinyl shops in the next suburb over.
    Went wild and bought about $200 worth of used vinyl, from pop, rock to blues & classical.
    Can't wait to play them puppies once I get back to the good ole US of A!
    Heading to downtown Melbourne later this week, there's supposed to be a great shop selling tube audio gear etc., will have to check that one out!
    Still getting used to driving on the 'wrong side' of the road again....and the traffic!!!!!!!!!!......aaaaarrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! affraid

    One stop shopping in my neck o' the woods ...



    They've got a fantastic selection of vinyl, tape and dvd. Also a repair shop with new audio equipment under the same roof, AND an auditorium in the back for local bands. Hard to beat.

    PS ... you're not worried about trying to get vinyl through customs?

    What the hell are those?

    I dunno, Fred, I think they're ... uh ... what the hell ARE those ??

    jeeez...really???...they are frisbees!!!!!  Shocked 
    no problems at all for customs, I'll be sending them ahead of me via post anyway, no way am I gonna carry those puppies on the plane!
    We do have some shops back in Bozeman, about 1hr drive from our place, but there is limited choice and I have already raided those!  Very Happy 
    At this rate I'll probably check out some more stores in downtown Melbourne, heading that way next week.
    Checked tube prices here in Oz...holy crap they are expensive here...I'll stick to buying them back home in the good ole US of A!
