CDandLP is turning 15 this year. Let’s celebrate!

The Game: a blind test. First of all we wanted to thank you for your warm feedback on our blog. We knew that posting again on the blog was a good idea but we weren’t expecting such enthusiasm coming from you to hear about us and music, our common passion. We are so happy that you en [...]

The blog is back

Some of you have been knowing us for a while, indeed, CDandLP was born in 2002. For some others it’s more recent. Although we have a surprise coming up for our 15th birthday. For you and all the new fellows that we are glad to welcome every day, we decided to write again in our blog. The blog was launched in 2009 while we were in Japan. At the time, we wrote about the record stores we  [...]

Warehouse, Shinjuku

Linked to the previous post, Warehouse is the twin brother of Nat Records. To be clear, it is more a “siamese brother” than a twin, as the 2 shops share the same space, separated only by a wall that does not go all the way. So, you feel that you are in “one” shop, except that you have 2 different sets of reco [...]

Nat Records, Shinjuku

Nat Records is located in one of the back streets of the western part of Shinjuku, on the 2nd floor of a building, and they share their space with Warehouse Records (that we will present in another post) in an interesting concept that we could call '2 shops in 1' ! Nat Records opened up in 1994. I [...]

Barn homes records, Shinjuku

Barn Homes Records is a neat little shop on the second floor of a building on a rather busy street in Shinjuku and it has a very interesting characteristic for us : it is NOT mentioned in the Record Map (unusual enough to be noted...) We found this place by walking around the neighborhood West of Shinjuku station (whe [...]

Coconuts disk, Ikebukuro

The Coconuts disk store in Ikebukuro is one of the 4 shops of the company “Coconuts Disk” (the 3 others are located in Ekoda, Kichijoji and Yoyogi). We had a good chat with Satomura-san who explained the various activity of this very active company : not only do they sell used records, but they have nice textile products, so [...]

Hashodo koshoten, Ikebukuro

What a strange name for a record store, you think... And you are right ! Hashodo Koshoten literally means “Hasshodo's second hand book” . This is probably one of the oldest books and records store in Japan : it was opened in 1960 ! This nice tidy shop of about 200 m2 is located in the back streets of Ike [...]

Shinjuku Record, Shinjuku

After 2 posts from Australia, we are back in Japan for some more presentations of record stores in Tokyo. As the name of the store states rightfully, this interesting record shop is located in Shinjuku. It was open by the Fujiwara family in 1970. They still run the place and, when you visit, there is a big chance t [...]
