We just added a new live show to our Listening Station page. Recorded live in-store to stereo reel to reel tape, we dug it out of the vault and had our resident piano tuner/audio engineer/website guy, Rob Cosh transfer it to digital hi-res audio files and master it. It sounds great! Check out the other shows while you’re there and stay tuned for more!Read More
This Saturday June 13th at 6PM The Record Centre Presents Les Petits Four.
In the 1950s, when French rock ‘n’ roll fans couldn’t follow English lyrics, they simply substituted them with ‘yeah, yeah, yeah!’ They had no idea they were creating a whole new genre of bubbly, humorous pop: yé-yé. This should be a really fun show, we are taping it Live to Tape so come and be part of our LIVE audience!
Come down to the shop at 6pm this Saturday to watch Les Petits Fours perform mid-century pop classics in the yé-yé style!
Lots of News. Several new “used” collections in the store. About 400 collectible LPs, including Japanese imports, Russian Imports (really!) British Imports, Boots, 45 Picture Discs.
We’d like to thank everybody who made it out to the HILOTRONS LP release party at the Blacksheep Inn on Friday. The event was a huge success, with over 200 attendees and nearly a hundred copies of the new album sold. We and the band are overwhelmed by all of the kind support we’ve received from you guys. Thank you! Hard Science’s visuals and openers Theaternia and Dark Plains were also astounding. The night couldn’t have gone better!
Furthermore, we’d like to thank those who came down to the shop on Saturday night for the Scattered Clouds LP release! Big ups to the band for putting on a fantastic show, and Ming Wu for capturing the evening with some stellar photos of the band (http://photogmusic.com/?p=32378).
Our next in-store is scheduled for this Sunday, May 10th at 4PM. We’re thrilled to have Montreal’s Les Deuxluxes perform at the store on their way back from performing at Canadian Music Week in Toronto! https://www.facebook.com/events/366447050230522/
