Record (vinyl) stores in Kingston?

My husband and I are visiting Jamaica for the very first time this March, 2013. We are very excited. We will be staying at Strawberry Hill, Kingston. My husband is a huge music fan (obviously Bob Marley, Beatles, you name it). We would like to check out record/CD stores in Kingston. One store has been mentioned to us, 'Rockers International Records - Agustus Pablo's Store'. Where is it in Kingston? We did not realize that a day trip into Kingston from Strawberry Hill would be so expensive. Anyway, any tips on some good record shops in Kingston would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks Jane. It does help very much. Any other record/CD shops worth visiting in Kingston, Jamaica? My husband has a collection of over 10,000 vinyl albums, from the early 60s on - so it is definitely an interest of his.

Also, how can we get from Strawberry Hill down to Kingston cheap?

check with Karen ...she does trips tailored to your interests and very reasonably priced ..probably less than what SH would charge if they arrnged a taxi for you..also ask her about the Kingston Tour and the Art Tour..

I have not gotten a direct quote yet from Strawberry Hill, however, their website quotes $85 US one way from the Norman Manley Airport to Strawberry Hill. A lot of money, anyway ....

If we want to make day trips into Kingston we would rather not pay $85 US each way!!!

Any vinyl record store addresses please.

I can't recommend any personally - you will probably need someone else to help but meantime this list may help you to start a little internet checking

Thanks Staggabak. I am not on Facebook so I can't access the link you posted. Does 'Karen' have a non-Facebook website link?
