Everyday is Record Store Day at White Elephant Records. We are an online store and you may also visit us by appointment. We are based in the fair suburb of Welland, the inner west of Adelaide. You can also catch us at the major Record Fairs held each year in Adelaide run by Music Palooza and Mr V at Semaphore.
At White Elephant Records we have heaps of good quality classic albums, and great music from the 40s through to the 21st Century – rock, blues, jazz, country, new wave, pop, punk, disco, soul, surf, bluegrass, Hollywood, Broadway and West End soundtracks and musicals, and also gems from the Golden Lounge Era of the 40s and 50s.
Call us to make an appointment on 0404 803 349 to visit the shop or look online at http://whitelephantrecords.com.au.
Check out RockBlogster for a rocking potted history and immersion in music adventures, starting in 1963 just before the great British invasion, and then we go all over the place. In our first years we have travelled far and wide, rolling commentary out for 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966 – Sun and Surf, instrumental bands, the Folk Revival, His “Bobness”, the Merseybeat and early Beatles. We analyse the charts in Australia from Go-Set, UK Official Charts and Billboard in USA. In 2017 we explored Psychedelic Sounds and the Summer of Love in the break-out year of 1967. This year we tackle the darker happenings of 1968 and 1969 before we crash through into the 70s. Read on!
Apart from Rockblogster there is also special commentary on our Jazz Scene, Golden Era of Lounge Music, and Stage and Screen pages – something for everyone. White Elephant Records – an Adelaide Record Store of note.
