Casbah Records is south-east London’s premier independent record shop. We dropped anchor at 320-322 creek road, Greenwich, London, SE10 9SW in Febuary 2009 after trading at Greenwich market for many years.
Next door is Retrobates vintage dealing in vintage clothing and record players from the 50’s to the 70’s. You can visit them at the same time as us via a cunningly created portal that links both shops!
We are small but perfectly formed with the interior being a mixture of Kensington Market, Paul’s Boutique and the Chelsea Drugstore! Let’s hope we last longer than they did!
We are choc-full to the brim with top quality new and vintage vinyl, new cd’s, dvd’s, books,comics and t.shirts. We cover everything from R.n.R, R.n.B, Surf, Soul, Prog Rock, Folk, Rock, Blues, Reggae, Jazz, Afrobeat, Psychedelia to Hip-Hop, Punk, Indie and electronica. Phew!
Our specialist areas would be Garage/Psych from the 60’s to the ‘now sounds’, Soul/funk and Cult TV/Film Soundtracks.
We take a keen interest in contempory music and have a great selection of new releases on vinyl and cd plus all the classic and hard to find reissues.
We have experience and know how behind the counter who love to talk about music and films. So if your into quality sounds and yearn for the days when buying music involved more than a shopping trolly or a computer screen then this is the place for you. Come and see what you think.
Some customer reviews of Casbah Records
Spent a small fortune there today. Very friendly staff… knowledgeable as well. I shop for cds of which there are many – if you are a vinyl fiend then this really is the place for you. Great shop very highly recommended.
I love this place: everything you could possibly want with a nice vibe and the friendliest staff ever. I’ll always try to get my music from them before the bigger shops or the dreaded last resort Amazon!!!
Support you local independent record shop, you know it makes sense
