Reviews of Dead Parrott Records in Barrie, ON
- 20 Reviews
It's difficult to review this store because it's SO focused on vintage -- the friendly owner stocks minimal new vinyl purposely. His selection of 60s, 70s, 80s punk, rock and psych is unmatched with multiple cool pressings from Europe as well as some great jazz and other genres. His store is filled with amazing music memorabilia and he has a decent selection of CDs, cassettes and 45s as well. The conundrum becomes that the 90s is emerging as such a crucial musical decade that it's (almost) a necessity to stock those 90s titles and Dead Parrots doesn't carry them. As a vintage vinyl/crate digging store, this is a 5/5 of course but hoping that he brings in a mixture of modern vinyl as well as he buys collections.
Fantastic atmosphere and selection. Such a great place to browse and ask about all things music. Glad that this is in Barrie.
The owner knows his stuff & is happy to talk shop. Good quality used records, lots of classic rock and folk ++
Wow. Great selection of high quality used vinyl at what they should be. I found lps on my list that I thought I would never find. Paul had it. I plan on plenty more visits in the future.Paul Russell knows his stuff when it comes to music and vinyl.Check this place out. You won't be disappointed. Great service and price.
If this is old school I'm going back to class. Great selection of quality used vinyl, CD's and cassettes all provided by the very knowledgeable owner. A man after my own tastes but very well versed in all genres.
