Travelling the world in search of records has been a bit harder the last few years obviously but I’ve managed to get out of Australia a few times in the last year and have twice headed to Los Angeles. I last did a Record Stores Of The World feature on the expansive city back in 2019 and a lot has changed in the world since then, so here is the 2023 updated version of Los Angeles record stores.
Tennessee is home to two of the world's most famous music cities, Nashville & Memphis, it was time to pay them both a visit to find out what their best recotrd shops were and check out some of the other musical landmarks of each city.
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.
