29 Dec #vinyloftheday – Mr Ong (Red Point Record Warehouse, Singapore) interview
This 2,000-sq-foot vinyl and CD specialist, Red Point Record Warehouse, is arguably Singapore’s best kept music secret. Owner Ong Chai Koon, who works as a carpenter during the day, set up Red Point 10 years ago to share his love for vinyl. His collection now stretches to a jaw-dropping 50,000 records. Spotted here are rare titles like a vinyl copy of Nick Cave’s The Good Son, as well as many other collectible classic jazz albums (look out for works by Oscar Petersen and Jan Garbarek), hundreds of classical CDs and a respectable selection of 80s 12-inch singles.
