            The website Pothole.com had an article about Paris Stores.
            Unfortunately the site does not seem to be up and running.
            However, I saved a copy of the article and have printed it

            Armindo Miranda's
            African record shop tour of Paris

            Bill, this is going to be a long posting.
            How I envy you! Paris is a great place to buy african music, not
            least because of the numerous "used" CD shops. I would recommend to
            start with those, because the regular prices are very steep, roughly
            twice US prices. The 5th arrondissement is not a bad place to operate
            from, there are lots of impecunious students with excellent tastes in
            the neighbourhood. Now, to the heart of the matter:

            I suggest that you start your hunt on the north side or R. des
            Ecoles, coming from Bld. St. Michel towards Jussieu. The first shop
            that you will find is Crocodisc. They have two outlets, you want the
            one at no. 40, where they have their world music section. You will
            see a huge selection of African stuff on the shelves on the left hand
            side towards the back of the shop - but that's only the proverbial
            tip of the icebeg. Tell the guy at the counter that you are seriously
            interested in African music, and he will show you half a dozen of
            cardboard boxes full of nice stuff that they keep in the cupboard
            below the shelves. Some it is sort of mainstream (say, Koffi Olomide
            and the likes), some is mindboggling obscure - bands from the Abidjan
            club scene nobody has heard (/of) before. In addition, behind the
            counter, they have an entire bookshelf with the stuff we all die for.
            Prices would be around FFR 80. Raise the limit of the credit card
            before you leave home - last time I walked out of the shop with some
            20 of those precious gems...

            The next shop is called O'CD, on no. 26. Head straight for the
            basement. Much smaller selection than Crocodisc, but the discs are in
            the jewel boxes so you can inspect them for scratches and best of all
            they have set up a few CD-players with headphones so you can listen
            before you buy. Prices vary more than at Crocodisc (cds are colour
            coded) , but roughly speaking cds end up costing about FFR 80 on
            average.

            Next you should continue down rue des Ecoles, then up rue de Jussieu
            and to the left on rue Linne. (Linné if can see my accented e). On
            that street there is a whole bunch of outlets of a shop called
            Jussieu Music. The one you want is the first one on the north side of
            the street, which is devoted to African and reggae. The cases are
            empty, CDs are kept behind the counter, if you want to inspect them
            you have to ask. Slightly cheaper perhaps than Crocodisc.

            If you havn't got enough, cross the street, turn into rue des Arenes
            and go up that street . Around the corner with rue de Navarre you
            will find two shops called Paris Jazz Corner, the original one on the
            street corner itself (hence the name, I suppose), which sells jazz
            only and a new outlet further up the street where ou'll find world
            music, including what you came for. The selection is not large, but
            you may find extremely interesting things.

            As far as I know, these would be the best bets in the 5th
            arrondissement. By the time you have been to all these places you
            will be broke and sick of shopping. Yet, another area of the city
            that you may wish to explore is the intersection of the 9th, 10th and
            18th arrondissements - the area around metro stations Anvers and
            Barbès-Rochechouart. Here we are talking new CDs at full price and
            up... The shops are generally unpleasant, everything is under lock
            and key, some have their staff behind bullet proof glass, the whole
            set-up screams combat zone de-luxe. This doesn't mean that you
            shouldn't visit - in fact I think you should have a peek at a place
            like Anvers Musique, at 35 Bld. Rochechouart. A few other addresses
            are listed on the following web page:

            Fabrice Gaillard's list of Record Store in Paris.

            In the same genre (small shop, new cds, full price) but much more
            pleasant surroundings I would recommend Afric'Music at 3 rue des
            Plantes in the 14th, almost as far from the 18th as you can get. The
            owner is a congenial chap and he will try his best to help.

            For a real big treat, make the trek to the Most Holy Church of
            Heavenly Sounds (and exceedingly brief liner notes), I mean Sonodisc.
            It's located in the courtyard of 85 rue Fondary, in the 15th arr. I
            don't think you can buy direct from them, but they will gladly give
            you their catalogue. Keep it like I do on your night table and browse
            yourself to sleep every so often, dreaming about all those
            Franco/Rochereau re-issues. Just that catague is worth a trip to
            Paris :-)

            Apart from the above, there are all those gigantic record/bookshops
            like the ubiquitous FNAC and the Virgin Megastore on the Champs
            Elysees or the music/book department in the basement of Galleries
            Lafayette. You should visit them - aulthough perhaps more for the
            architectural experience (the Megastore and several of the FNAC
            outlets are brilliant) and the social thrill of late night shopping
            on the Champs Elysees, rather than for content. Although of course
            they do have more highly desirable cds than you could possibly afford
            (and store). The selections in the various FNAC outlets are similar,
            but not identical, so it's worth visiting several of them (I have
            recently surveyed those at Les Halles, rue de Rennes, Bastille,
            Champs Elysees but there are many more).

            While in Paris, listen to Afrique Numero 1 on FM, broadcast by
            satellite from Gabon. They are very Paris-oriented and in the morning
            news programmes they often talk about upcoming concerts and stuff in
            Paris. That's how I heard about the Diblo Dibala concert at the New
            Morning for the release of Jugement Dernier around Easter earlier
            this year - it wasn't advertised anywhere in the usual listing guides
            and even the FNAC ticket office, which sells tickets for the New
            Morning, knew nothing about it. So take your radio with you and
            listen to Africa Numero 1.

            Hope this helps and don't blame me if you find you need to sell your
            house. Enjoy your trip and share your experiences with the group when
            you come back.
