Travelling Light


I'm soon due to take a trip to the Netherlands, where I'll be stopping off in Amsterdam and The Hague... and somewhat inevitably, I'd be keen to know where the best second hand record stores are (if indeed there are many left).

This blog does tend to pick up quite a few hits from The Netherlands, so I'd love to hear from anyone who has any advice at all. It's for your own good - if I come back with any quality stuff, it will end up going straight on here, after all.

I'm also likely to be doing a couple of quick stops in Brussels and Antwerp over the border in Belgium. Thanks (in advance) for your help!

I was in Amsterdam last Easter, this is the only 2nd hand record shop I saw.

10 Weteringschans, Amsterdam.

Concerto, Utrechtsestraat 58, Amsterdam might still have second hand LP's, CD's ans 45'ers.

By the way, if you're searching for not so one-on-one Beatle songs covers, may be Help by Honestmen and Eight Days A Week by Daddy's Act might be findable in The Hague or A'dam.
These songs and bands are on
http://nederbeat.info with also lots of Hague bands (Shocking Blue, Q'65, Earrings, Haigs and Motions).

Thanks for all your help so far. I'm taking notes.

And Gela, yes, if I don't come back with some Nederbeat I'll consider it a failed mission. That's definitely high on the list of priorities!
