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.

Do the Tuff Gong tour(Bob Marley) & get some records there. Some record shops in the Malls on Constant Spring Road, records all over, Devon House & Bob Marley Museum.

Poppy,

A taxi from Strawberry Hill to "downtown" Kingston will cost less than a taxi from Strawberry Hill to Norman Manley International. The airport is nearly 10 miles - by road - from Kingston.

Also, Karen is wonderful. I recommend her unreservedly.

I would love to see your husband collection. Vinyl records are scarce and hard to find if you are not connected. In Kingston, there's Rockers Int'l and Prince Buster Shack (closed) on Orange St., Coxson on Brentford road, Dynamic Records on Bell Rd, Tuff Gong on Marcus Garvey Dr, GG Records on Torrington, just to name a few.
