all photos Tony May
Tony May… I’ve managed to find the photos of Jack & Sonia London I promised to look for. With LP’s coming back I wonder what Jack & Sonia would have to say. Such a nice couple and they gave us 44 years of faithful service…
Phil Gill… Wonderful couple, lovely photos. Always a joy to visit their shop.
Peter Fairless… Brilliant, Tony! Brings back many memories, as Phil just said, it was – never knew what Jack was going to suggest I listen to next!
Andrew Clifton… Very nice Tony. Shame they never had children to carry on with the shop.
Phil Gill… Always remember going into the booth with a couple of 13 year old friends to listen to Thunderclap Newman’s Something in the Air. He knew we didn’t have any money to buy it, but he still played it for us. And when Hey Jude was released as the first single on Apple, he had a box of apples and gave away a free one with every copy he sold. Diamond geezer.
Alan Esdaile… Wonderful. Thanks for posting Tony.
Jon McCallion… Brilliant place so many hours spent there
Alan Esdaile… Great to see Abrahams in the background and the rack of Steam records.
Alan Pepper… Yes what a great man he was always time for any customer ! Thought I knew a lot but he was something else . He would reel off the catalogue number and everything. Jazz in particular. Fab memories. Thank you. TAKE ME BACK TO THAT SHOP!!
Mick O’Dowd… The real Gent of record shop owners. Never be able to replace these.
Cliff Wootton… Fantastic. So nice to have pictures of Jack & Sonia. They were close friends of Mum & Dad and always had time for their customers. Happy memories of hours spent chatting to Jack about records.
Eugene Hughes… Omg. I remember The Record Shop so well and the Fab Boutique over the road. Then it became Two Plus One in Havelock Rd. I understand Brian Fisher is still going well and living in Westfield.
