Mixdown's Guide to Record Store Day 2018: Dixons Recycled Records

Record Store Day Special 2018

One of the longest-running second-hand record stores in Australia, Dixons Recycled Records is known for having some of the best bargains and hard to find vinyl records, CDs and DVDs. Dixons is open every day, and their collection is so extensive they've set up shop in two great locations: Blackburn and Fitzroy.

What sets your store apart from other record stores?

We not only have one of the largest selections of second-hand records in Australia, but also have an enormous selection of CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays and cassettes.


What’s your best advice for record collectors?

Get in early before the mad rush begins!


Do you specialise in any particular genres?

No, we pride ourselves on having an eclectic range of genres – from ABBA to Zappa.


What’s been the best record find you’ve ever made?

A stash of original Popol Vuh records in a regional op shop.


How do you source your records?

We source all our records from the general public. As we’ve been offering a premium price for good records since 1976, we’re usually the first place people come to offload their precious collections.


Are you holding any special events for Record Store Day?

Twenty percent off all stock (excluding new vinyl).


Visit Dixons Recycled Records at 100 Railway Road, Blackburn, VIC or 414 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, VIC. Record Store Day will be held on Saturday April 21.
