Anyone remember this shop next to Christ Church? I think it was mainly classical records but might be wrong?
Andy Qunta… Don’t actually remember this place.
Tony May… This is a really interesting find Alan! I certainly don’t ever remember a record shop in that position? Mind you, this is from 1972 so I would only have been 7 at the time. If this shop did exist it is faior to assume that it wasn’t in existence for many years. There was a record shop a bit further down on that side on the corner next to where the co-op is now in the 1980’s though. Can’t recall what it was called at the moment but I bought the ‘Candles’ album by Heatwave in there in 1981/2 shortly before it closed.
Clive Garrard… In about May 1973,on a day trip from Tonbridge,i bought “Sweet” -“Hellraiser” on a single in a record shop in London road,St Leonards.It was on the left hand side going up London road,before the large Church.Does anyone remember this shop?
Alan Esdaile… It was probably the above one, Clive.
Judie Struys.. I certainly do. I bought an album with my first ever pay packet. 1972 I think. It was Deep Purple in Rock. Played it over and over again. I can’t remember the name of the shop though.
