Ruff Trade Records
Ruff Trade Records in Hamburg offers an exquisite selection of recordings from the fields of jazz, reggae, folk, rock and more.
Ruff Trade Records is exactly as a record store should be: well-assorted and with an owner who knows what items to present and reveals rarer treasures on demand.
Michael Ruff gave the store its name, which is an allusion to the much more famous London chain Rough Trade. Following short-lived trends is not Ruff Trade's business idea - what comes into the store is what's good: between jazz and rock, classics and obscurity, and often enough the single that you've been looking for forever, or the half-forgotten one that you only remembered. Whoever is looking for a record store in Hamburg that reminds a bit of the location of "High Fidelity", Nick Hornby's declaration of love to the record, is at the right place in the Feldstraße.
