Hog’s Head Music – Quality pre-loved vinyl

The nostalgia trip of the vinyl shop: mysterious black discs, gorgeous cover art, flipping through crates of music just waiting to be heard…

Of the handful of second-hand vinyl shops in Edinburgh, Hog’s Head Music is my favourite. Sure, they don’t have all the latest releases – their LP’s are all second hand – but what they do have is quality, well priced, and well chosen. No terrible 80’s hair metal albums clogging up this store, thank you very much. I tend to drop by whenever I’m in Newington, as their stock is constantly changing: a stack of rare albums may come in at any time.

You’re almost certain to find something to your taste in their many different sections: Blues, Rock, Jazz, Metal etc. They also have CD’s and music merchandise, but the vinyl is still the main attraction for me. If you need advice or recommendations, the staff are genuinely interested in music and will gladly test out LP’s on their excellent soundsystem.
