Hound Dogs Bop Shop West Melbourne Closing

Postby (harveyrickenbacker) » Fri Dec 16, 2011 10:08 pm

Just heard on Brian Wise' show on RRR that the iconic Hound Dogs Bop Shop at 313 Victoria Street West Melbourne is closing for good on Christmas eve.

This place is an institution in Melbourne for people looking to buy LP's, CD's and books covering the predominantly the 50's and 60's. It specialises in rock 'n' roll, western swing, country, blues and rockabilly. Just good ol' fashioned stuff. So even though he doesn't sell rickenbackers there will be plenty of albums featuring them.

Dennis the Hound Dog is retiring although the comment on the radio suggested he might still run the business by mail order.

Sales on this week so if in melbourne get on down and pick up some bargains or just have a browse because its unlikely Melbourne will ever see a record store like this one again!
