If you'd like to check out a Vinyl Station, drop into Rathdowne Records in Northcote Melbourne, and say hi to Joel. Rathdowne Records is a unique record store, and has a constant supply of fresh vinyl. Joel stocks an eclectic mix across many genres. With a deep collection of Jazz, World Music, Funk and Soul, plus the usual classics and interesting pressings of Rock, Folk, R&B and Electronic genres.
Operating for over 15 years, and originally located in Carlton as a DVD and then Jazz records destination, Rathdowne Records moved to Northcote High Street in Melbourne for additional space. The store expanded. Still known as a Jazz specialist, Joel has over 14,000 records available across all genres. With such a wide mix of music and large collection, you can spend some serious time here. Joel also has some really cool vintage hi-fi equipment to checkout. While the term 'rare finds' gets thrown around a lot, Rathdowne has plenty.
Joel has a regular supply of new vinyl sourced locally, from Japan, Africa, the US and Europe. He posts updates and new stuff regularly on Facebook an Instagram, so it's worth keeping an eye on his social feed.
