Any recommendations?

Not just soundtracks, but jazz, classical, gypsy and other world music.

Villa, I have an image of you at a sidewalk cafe with a bottle of wine and loaf of French bread, unbagging the Michel Legrand LPs you just purchased.

What you describe above could just be the typical Gábor Szabó album.

OCD Paris Les Halles

La FNAC Champs-Elysees (as I remember, they used to have a good selection for movie soundtracks)

Hey everybody, thanks for the tips! Won't be going for a few months, so don't feel shy if you think of others.

I haven't been in Paris since I was a teenager--I wonder if they ever finished that iron tower they were working on. I remember buying--and this was I think 1970--an lp of Once Upon a Time in the West (not yet released in the U.S.) and 45's of In Cold Blood and Macadam Cowboy (with Fun City on the back side).

I love Gabor Szabo, but my interest in gypsy music is less gypsy jazz or gypsy swing and more of those violin/cymbalom instrumental bands from Romania, Russia, and thereabouts.

At the Fnac Champs Elysée they USED to have a great selection. In early December they dramatically cut the CD corner. They still have some intrada or LLL or whatever but the prices are really really high. Not a good bargain at all.

Paralelles store for books and all kinds of records and CD's. Nice selection of just about everything. It's by Les Halles .

How sad it was for me to see this brought up. I started this in January of 2020, very much anticipating our trip in July of that year. Obviously, we didn't go. We'd like to re-schedule, but will probably wait a bit longer.

Since then I've learned about Superfly Records, which specializes in jazz LPs, African records, and music from other countries, so very much in my wheelhouse.

Didn't mean to sound so glum. After all, I have survived.

My July of 2020 Paris trip was obviously cancelled, but it's back on for early October. Record stores come and go, mostly go, so any recommendations? Updates?

In making your suggestions keep in mind that in addition to soundtracks I am interested in jazz, classical, and European folk music.

villa, you've probably done this already, but I just did a quick Google search for "soundtrack/ jazz stores in Paris" and loads of places came up. Obviously you'd have to look into each individual case because the few stores I clicked on were mostly dealing in heavy metal and hip-hop. But some looked interesting from the "World Music" angle.

Good luck!

Thanks, Graham. I've done some research, and there are a few places I'd like to squeeze in.

Off to Paris in a couple of days, and I'm going to try and fit in 3 record stores--Crocodisc, Paris Jazz Corner, and Gilbert Joseph. I also hope to see the ghost of Erik Satie haunting the streets of Montmartre.
