Porto’s record shops, part 1​

porto calling – loja de discos rua da conceição 80 – loja 2 – tel: 220 945 501, official site & facebook rock (all types and most of it), jazz, funk & soul. its name is a tribute to ‘london calling’ by the clash, and for sure you breathe a nostalgic british air at the store that gave it a friendly atmosphere inviting you to go there many times. it’s mostly rock, but exploring all the shelves you will get more than that. recent records and old gems can be found at this record shop somehow hidden from the main street and headed by a nice guy that really knows what is selling. louie louie rua do almada, 307 – tel: 222 010 384, official site & facebook everything & everything one of the oldest and still open record shops at porto. the place at almada’s street (there’s also a store at the portuguese capital), has a nice aura and you can find a bit of every type of music, from old bargains to the new …

Radiohead – In Rainbows

this is for sure one of the best records we have bought for our collection. in 2007, we got the cd version of radiohead‘s “in rainbows” and back then it sounded amazing. today with the collection we had to have the vinyl version. this is, certainly, the best album radiohead ever made. this vinyl was bought in a little shop at porto, portugal called louie louie and we were amazed when saw that was one of the first 2007 pressings from xl recordings, pressed directly from the master. the sound is amazingly clean. in rainbows is a 2007 album, which features amazing tracks like “house of cards”; “15 steps”; “jigsaw falling into place”; “nude”; “reckoner” or “bodysnatchers”. don’t get any big ideas they’re not gonna happen you paint yourself white and fill up with noise there’ll be something missing and now that you found it it’s gone in rainbows, radiohead, 2007
