I've been visiting Amsterdam last month and went inside some of the shops listed in the link.I wasn't lucky because reggae records were few and often overpriced.Had a good time anyway as I love record shops...and Amsterdam :D

My sister has lived in the city during the last 5 years so i´ve used a lot of time crate digging in Amsterdam, but unfortunately i must say it isn´t the best place to find records, and especially not reggae. Rush Hour (www.rushhour.nl) has a small reggae selection, most represses, but if you´re into different kind of world music such as afrobeat, latin ect. it´s a really nice place!

I haven´t visited it myself, but as far as i´m aware there exicts a shop in Nijmegen (about 1 hour from Amsterdam) which has a nice reggae selection, but i don´t know the name of the shop so i can´t tell you more. Maybe someone can tell more?

Hope you´ll have a nice time anyway!

I recommend a place called "Recordmania" ( www.recordmania.nl ). Its the only record shop I went to in Amsterdam year ago, and I found some nice reggae even some blank label stuff from 60s. It is quite near the center of Amsterdam so there shouldn't be any trouble getting there.
