About

Red Cat Records, April ‘08Red Cat Records is an indie neighbourhood record store in Vancouver, voted one of the top ten indie stores in Canada by our customers (CBC 3 Searchlight, 2008.)

We’re known for our customer service, music knowledge, and eclectic selection of current releases, new & used classic catalogue, and vinyl re-issues.

Red Cat takes it name from Buddy the cat, an enormous and cantankerous feline that ruled the store with an iron paw until his demise in ‘06. Though the store smells better now, he’s missed by many (though not by the children he attacked). He even inspired a full concept album by Ry Cooder: My Name Is Buddy.
