Diggin’ Sydney has arrived, almost!

Posted By admin on April 18th, 2017

It’s almost time! The maps have been loaded on the trucks and are in transit, the website has been updated with all the new stores and usual essential digging tips, and 33 record stores around the Sydney Metropolitan area are feverishly preparing for Record Store Day on Saturday April 22. This year’s map is the fifth edition of Diggin’ Sydney and features some new great stores, along with all our old favourites. We’re also excited to have Audio Technica as our partner in 2017. Without their support this project would not be possible.

New maps should be available later tomorrow, especially from the CDB shops and Record Store in Darlinghurst. You can get the jump on the Record Store Day crowds by checking the the online  Store Guide right now. The online Store Guide also contains some sneaky store listings we just couldn’t fit into the printed map. Get amongst it!

What does a £2,500 record sound like?

Audiophile Pete Hutchison has gone to extraordinary lengths to reissue golden era classical recordings in their purest form. He talks to Killian Fox about the price of perfection, the ‘digital con’, and the sound of a truly analogue recording

Four years ago, Pete Hutchison realised that his record-collecting habit was getting out of control. From a young age he had been buying music across a wide variety of genres – folk, rock, punk, jazz, house and techno – but recently he’d been getting into classical music, and that, for a lover of rare vinyl, is an expensive move. Classical music tends to fetch much higher prices on the collector’s market than other genres. “In a single year,” he says, “I spent £40,000 just on classical, not counting all the other music I was buying.” One purchase that year, a rare box set of Mozart recordings from 1956, set him back £7,000.
