As far as digging for records goes, Reykjavik is probably one of the most remote places you can go in the world but it's definitely worth visiting to explore the record shops along with the unique natural beauty of this small island country.
For the tenth Record Stores of the World it was time to venture into the deep south of the United States and see what Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama had to offer. It's meant a journey down Highway 61 in torrential rain, hanging out in New Orleans and finding some of the best record stores to date in regional Alabama.
Los Angeles is the first stop of a series of USA cities that will feature on the next few editions of Record Stores of the World. From the excessive to the mmall and the strange, LA has every sort of record store.
For the first edition of Record Stores Of The World for 2019 I headed across the Tasman for a quick visit to see what the North Island of New Zealand had to offer. Taking in the cities of Auckland and Wellington alongside smaller stops in Hamilton, New Plymoth, Taupo and Raglan.
