Adrians ! I used to buy records from there in the 80's !

Good to hear that they are still going.

The problem is that record shops independent or otherwise are in short supply these days.

In Grimsby we have an electrical store by the name of Rayners who, many years ago sold records alas today no music at all, had about six little booths in front of the the record counter where you could hear the record before you bought it. On slow days they would let you hear the entire side of a long playing reccord but if the person behind the counter was in a good mood the entire album. Outside of the booths, if they were all in use, was sheer hell with all the sounds merging in to splurge of rock, ballards, comedy and anything else that was in the charts back then. And you now what? I still miss being there.
