Sounds of the Universe first began as a shop specialising in rare original vinyl - over 25 years ago! We source original vinyl from all around the world - America, Brazil, Venezuela, Cuba, Mexico, Nigeria, Europe, Jamaica and even further afield. We sell original albums, 45s, 12”s (and books too!).

    All our original vinyl is 100% guaranteed. This means if you are not happy with the condition when you receive it, just return it to us and we will refund your money - no problem.

      You can save this selection to your shortcuts. Log in or create an account to use this feature.
