Radical Retro Revival Records
Vinyl heaven
The shop front and windows of Revival Records Exchange, on Moorland Road, Bath

The eagerly waited record emporium Revival Records Exchange opened last month and it is a wonderful addition to Bath. With a wide range of beautiful and affordable vinyl on offer, it is a haven for music lovers, be they die-hard vinyl hounds or new to records. Super friendly, knowledgeable and approachable staff make this place particularly special. Located on Bath's bustling and proudly independent Moorland Road, it has brought a happy and groovy feelgood vibe to the street.

Inside Revival Records
An interior view, showing the many genres and sounds on offer.

For a relatively small space, there is a wealth of music available here, and offers everything from Film and TV soundtracks to classic LP's from past decades. Although plentiful, the selections are well-picked and show an openness to all manner of tastes and genres. As a regular customer, I can vouch for the quality and care that goes in to only selling high-quality vinyl, be it second hand or new pressings. Whenever I go there I find something unusual or sought after, which in my opinion is a wonderful testament to a great music shop.

On Display this week

Revival also looks fantastic, and the staff have an eye for great album art as well as great albums. There are always vibrant and interesting sleeve covers to see in the window, and this is yet another draw to the place. Along with great tunes, there is a range of vinyl merchandise inside, notably some stylish vinyl-inspired greetings cards. Even though it is very new, the place has a sense of identity to it that is very attractive and endearing and has a love of music at its core.

A list of bestselling albums so far.

Revival may be the sister store to Resolution Records (which I have written about previously), but it is blossoming into a loud and proud place of its own, as the growing numbers of visitors attest to. I love it. Everything from the brown paper printed bags that come with a purchase, to flipping through the masses of bargain records in crates at the front of the shop. If you are coming to Bath any time soon, then make a beeline for this place.

A blend of old and new LPs.
