Vinyl collectors and rare-title experts Sound One will be throwing open their doors this Saturday, March 20 to celebrate the opening of their brand new storefront on Rokeby Road.
Kicking off from 9am, this family-run business will be rocking out with live music from local artists such as 12-year-old guitar prodigy Jayden Tatasciore, blues and world music performer Mike de Velta, and Peter David Donaldson the Elvis impersonator extraordinaire.
Originally opening on Hay Street in 1971, Sound One is one of Australia’s oldest independently-operated music stores with an impressive collection of over 10 000 records, both new and second-hand. Specialising in imported and hard-to-get titles on CD, DVD and vinyl, Sound One boasts an extensive range of international genres, such as music from Macedonia, Croatia and Serbia, as well as a collection of new-condition cassettes from former Yugoslavia. One rare album that they have in stock is sought-after “Covers” by Roy Orbison, where the renowned musician performs covers of famous songs such as traditional ballad “Danny Boy” and Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline”.
If the album you’re looking for isn’t in their impressive back catalogue, then owner Zat Petrovski happily takes requests to source new and interesting material. Along with CDs, DVDs and vinyl records, Sound One also stocks musical accessories from cables, record cleaning kits and record styluses to headphones and T-shirts. The store also operates a vinyl-trading scheme for anyone looking to sell their old records and offers a disc and record cleaning service, but unfortunately cannot accept DVD or CD trade-ins.
