What We Carry

We stock a huge range of new & used vinyl, CDs and music DVDs and the list below gives you some idea of the genres we aim to cover.

NEW RELEASES

We carry a healthy selection of new releases especially on vinyl. Many of these are imported in  on a monthly basis from Europe and the U.S. although an increasing number are now pressed here in the U.K.

FIFTIES

Our fifties section includes most of the perennial rock ‘n’ roll favourites, oldies and various early  vocal artists. “A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-lop-bam-boom!”

SIXTIES

We have rows and rows of sixties psych, garage, beat and rock & pop CDs and vinyl. There are   many original pressings and a very healthy supply  of classic reissues on such great labels as  Sundazed, Norton, Shadoks & Gear Fab, etc…

SEVENTIES

We love our prog rock so it’s no surprise that you’ll find tons of classic titles to choose from on vinyl and CD. Once again, there are some great reissue titles and as many original pressings that we can get our hands on!

PUNK / NEW WAVE

Plenty of punky stuff here. Both regular and the downright obscure! We’ve also got some great  vinyl reissues. Oi! Get yerself down to Rooster.

ROCK & POP

Lotsa regular rock & pop titles to be found here. Generally artists from the seventies, eighties and beyond.

HARD ROCK / HEAVY METAL

Head bangers are made very welcome at Rooster.  If heavy rock’s yer bag then we’ve got it. There are loads of seventies and eighties metal CDs & vinyl and in particular, a great selection of picture discs.

AMBIENT /AVANT GARDE

Contains a decent selection of electronic and experimental stuff with a toe firmly dipped into the Krautrock genre!

DANCE / ELECTRONICA

O.K. so we’re not a “dance” shop. But that doesn’t stop us from stocking a great range of dance, electronica, Ninja Tune, dub step and even a bit of drum & bass.

HIP HOP / URBAN

We pride ourselves on our amazing range of hip-hop LPs and 12” singles, many of which are especially imported from the U.S. There’s also a great selection of CDs.

INDIE / ALTERNATIVE

Plenty of indie artists to choose from particularly   on vinyl. We strive to stock the bang up-to-date   LP releases, especially some of the more obscure ones!

DEATH METAL / NU METAL

Whether you’re into death metal, black metal,   goth metal or Scandinavian metal, we’ve got it all covered. Just don’t ask us to play it. It clears the shop in seconds!

THRASH / NU PUNK

For all you punk revivalists out there, we’ve got a top selection of vinyl and CDs.

REGGAE / DUB / SKA

We know it’s hard to find original reggae vinyl in great condition but we still do our best to locate ‘em. And, there’s always a constant supply of terrific LP and 45 reissue titles as well as CDs to keep everybody smiling.

SOUL / FUNK

Whether it’s soul, rhythm & blues, funk, Motown   or northern you’re into, we’ve got something for everyone. There are original LPs, tons of cracking reissues and a great selection of 45s. Boogie on down to Rooster!

JAZZ

Now yer talkin’! We can’t get enough jazz. We’ve got Blue Note’s coming out of our ears, loads of ECM, fusion, obscurities and everything in between. It’s jazz heaven!

BLUES

Whether it’s the twenties or the noughties, the  blues is the blues and we’ve got plenty. “Woke up this morning…my baby’s left me…goin’ to Rooster Records…buy me some blues”.

COUNTRY

Not just country here. Throw in some bluegrass, honky-tonk, country rock and southern rock and you’re getting’ the right idea. Yee-haaaaaaa!

 

ANGLO / GAELIC FOLK

Also includes singer songwriters and the  wonderfully termed “acid folk”. We always carry a great reissue selection of those holy grail titles and as many originals as we can find.                                        

U.S. FOLK / ROOTS

Also includes singer songwriters and roots artists from the thirties to the present day.

 

AMERICANA

Stocked mainly on CD but there’s plenty to choose from.

 

WORLD / ETHNIC

Again, stocked mainly on CD.

 

SOUNDTRACKS / COMEDY

Film soundtracks, shows, TV and comedy. We’ve got bucket loads particularly on vinyl.
