Welcome to the online home of BEATNIK BAY RECORDS & BOOKS. We are a retro music and book retailer based in Plymouth in South West England.
We offer vinyl records and CDS from all eras and covering most genres.
We have books and magazines of all sorts but with an emphasis on music art and illustration, and post war fiction.
We have been buying and selling records for some 30 years via mail order, at South West England regional Record Fairs and now increasingly online.
Music is our passion and proprietor Robin Ash has had articles published in "Record Collector" magazine and he has helped with occasional re-issues.
We value our customers greatly and offer a friendly good-humoured approach to buying and selling.
All items are guaranteed so if you have any problems or queries or would like more information, please contact us.
You may like to browse the Beatnik Bay Gallery, which has examples of some rather attractive LP sleeves, some original art and some covers which may look strangely familiar but have been modified by all manner of talented designers, impoverished artists, bohemians and scoundrels.
