Olympic Studios Records
It is with heavy, but still beating, hearts that we have decided to close the shop until the New Year.
The risks to our volunteer staff far outweigh the joy we all get from working in the shop.
We will try to find a way to sell our Olympic Studios Records items, including Wood Stock, Mix 66 gin and the book, 100 Albums, in a safe way for all.
We will update the website and Instagram with any news.
Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures…of gin

Opened in July, 2018., the shop is 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 40%-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 collect and collate 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 is normally open three days per week,
Friday, from 12 noon to 6 pm, Saturday 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday 12 noon to 4 pm.
