Review of Rave Up Records in Vienna

Ever since opening in 1987, Rave Up has been bolstering its reputation as one of Vienna's most charismatic record stores. As the story goes, Werner “Shorty” Schartmüller, a die-hard fan of The Stooges, witnessed the rise of London's famed Rough Trade Records and knew that he also wanted to own a record store. It took about ten years but Shorty's dream finally came to fruition when he and his wife Doris opened Rave Up in the Hofmühlgasse. These days, their store is a meeting point for Vienna's notoriously fastidious music buffs. Almost every genre and sub-genre is well represented in vinyl and CD form. From trip hop to early rockabilly, from Japanese house to the easy listening albums you thought only your mother listened to, they've got it at Rave Up Records. In the unlikely event that you can't find what you're looking for, Shorty and Doris have worldwide connections to ensure procurement of even the rarest LPs.
