An Old Town record store that's full of retro gold.
Located just down the road from Thai craft beer spot Let the Boy Die, M-Tanakorn Records is a new gem for vinyl crate diggers.
Run by vinyl collector Thanakorn “M” Teechapoonpanya, the shop’s specialty is its unique selection of Thai string and luk krung (central Thai orchestral pop) music from the ‘70s-‘80s on vinyl as well as cassette.
Highlights from our digging include releases from luk krung queen and National Artist Mantana Morakul, legendary luk krung band Sunthraporn, founder of GMM Grammy Rewat Buddhinan and luk thoong-string act Don Sornrabiab.
The international selection is no less classic—expect ABBA, Elton John and Bennie Green among more esoteric finds.
