OLYMPIC STUDIOS RECORDS

We are delighted to announce the opening of OLYMPIC STUDIOS RECORDS in July, 2018.

Located at 66 Church Road, opposite the Olympic Studios and Cinema in Barnes, ‘OSR’ is a community record shop specialising in vintage and new vinyl records.  It celebrates the rich music recording history of the Olympic Studios, one of the great British recording institutions.  From its opening in Barnes in 1966 until closure in 2009, Olympic Studios hosted everyone from Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones and the Who to Madonna and U2. 

In addition to selling iconic vintage albums, new pressings of Olympic recorded music and albums by contemporary recording artists, the shop provides a place for local residents to sell their vinyl collections.  The OSR team will advise which titles will be most saleable, clean and repair the vinyl and its packaging and research the optimum sale price for each album.  Commission on sales will be charged at 30%-50%, depending on the condition and saleability of the albums selected for sale.

As well as providing a place for music fans to come together to share stories and test their knowledge against that of their fellow music fans, the site will also house the archive of the full body of music recorded and mixed at the Olympic Studios from 1966 - 2009, currently a list of almost 900 albums.

Merchandise and signed memorabilia will be available for purchase, along with a small selection of musical and analogue equipment.  The store will initially open Friday to Sunday, from 10am to 6pm.

Please contact Olympic Studios' Archivist, Roger Miles for information on the Olympic Studios Record shop and collections for sale at roger@olympiccinema.co.uk.
