Mixdown’s Guide to Record Store Day 2018: RPM Records

What sets your store apart from other record stores?

Apart from a very eclectic variety of vinyl albums, 12” & 7” singles, CDs and cassettes, we also have a large range of posters, books & other music memorabilia. We have a big selection of all the classic rock, punk, funk, soul, ‘80s, Aussie, blues, hip hop, dance music and even a large selection of jazz, classical and world music. A common comment we get is how people like the old school ‘70s vibe about the place.


If you could add one rare record to your collection, which would it be?

Probably the Velvet Underground album with an intact banana skin.


What’s your best advice for record collectors?

Buy lots of records, store and handle them properly because they really are investments.


What do you love about vinyl records?

All the stuff you’d expect. Warm sounds, surface noise, human interaction to be able to drop the needle wherever you want, great covers, liner notes with lyrics and the experience of hearing a complete album concept.


What is your most requested record?

All the classics still get requested constantly. Led Zeppelin I, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, and of course anything Dylan, Stones or Beatles.


Why should record collectors visit your store?

Because of our fun vibe, exceptional customer service, and expert vinyl music knowledge. Also we are open seven days a week from 11am to 7pm.


Find RPM Records at 113 Marrickville Road, Marrickville, NSW. Record Store Day will be held on Saturday April 21.
