OK, so what is it about this vinyl bug that when we get one day spare in a new city, those afflicted amongst us also get to see it through the lens of finding vinyl?
I could not resist sharing these pictures of my visit to the 'thieves market' in Mumbai today. Lots of vinyl, if you are looking for Bollywood, and for old 78rpms. But I was just happy to look and enjoy the 'movie'. Thanks Paul Buttery for pointing me to the Chor Bazaar - a multi-sensory feast.
The gramophone wallah's can be found on Mutton Street, one street down from the car parts, batteries and metalwork.
Plenty of restored 78rpm players, piles of records, and yes, you can still find The Beatles and Elvis on Indian 78rpm pressings. No African vinyl though. :-)
Normal Electric Jive service will resume shortly.
