Julie Findlay-jones….Happy memories, cant see the badge machine tho x
Matt Thomas….Definitely 84 Ghostbusters is in the chart and Bob Marley Legend video on top shelf lol
Tony Ham….If I had all the money I spent in there, still got all the records though!
Karen Sweatman….My friend really really fancied him!
Jim Breeds….I can almost smell the place! All record shops had the certain smell of paper, card and vinyl. Plus cigarette in this case
Alan Esdaile….I know what you mean by the smell of a record shop. I can remember the first Virgin record shop in Brighton, opposite the clock tower, you were certain to get high on the atmosphere.
Jim Breeds….OMG yes, that Virgin shop in Brighton was a revelation! After I first discovered it I used to get the train over there just to go to that store. Soft deep carpets and scatter cushions where you could squat all day if you wanted, just talking to people, listening to the music and taking in the “atmosphere”! That comment brought back memories!! Far Out Man. There was a pretty decent record shop in The Lanes too I recall, though somewhat more conventional than the Virgin store.
Mick Knights….Remember queing outside the Virgin store in the freezing cold to buy Led Zepplin tickets and not objecting to the blatant queque jumpers, only to be the first to be refused entry, as they had sold out. Not bitter or anything!!!!
