Fred's Records

I want to put in a plug for this place. It was so refreshing to see a small. locally owned record store! Not only that, but the people inside are really helpful and know the local music scene. I bought two CDs by The Fables while there. 198 Duckworth, and if they haven't painted it differently, it's really purple!

I heard Stuart McLean talk about Fred's on his weekly CBC radio program called The Vinyl Cafe.

Here is a list of his favourite record stores across Canada. If you liked Fred's you will probably like these as well so if you ever find yourself in any of these places you might pop in.

PS - I've seen Stuart McLean do his radio program twice in person and it's highly recommended entertainment. If he comes to a town near you please go check him out.
