Five Great London Record Shops

DC Editor Adam writes…


Friday is Rock'n'Roll London Day! Join the Rock'n'Roll London walk this (and every Friday) afternoon at 2:00p.m meeting at Tottenham Court Road Station






1. Alan's Records, East Finchley


Support your local record shop. Support MY local record shop too! Alan's Records in East Finchley




… where I purchased THIS Motown gem (among many other items)…




Alan's Records also features in T.J Bird's lovely comic book Rock & Pop…




Rock and Pop by Tim Bird is about the how the commonplace is rendered elegiac by the presence of music.

It has my very favourite things in it: cartoonsmusicLondon and, best of all, daughters.

For anyone who has ever loved a song, this lovely musical autobiography will strike a chord.

Here's Alan's cameo appearance…





   


You can buy Rock & Pop and all of Tim Bird's other comic creations at his website www.timothybird.co.uk/shop/



2. Rat Records, Camberwell

Support my ex-local record shop! When I lived in Forest Hill, Rat Records (GREAT name!) was the nearest and best place to buy second-hand vinyl.





In a further comic book foot note, Rat Records makes a tiny cameo appearance in my own Rock'n'Roll London Comic Book – issue 1 starring Pink Floyd – on the page dealing with Camberwell School of Art…




Here's my very fave review of Rat Records, taken from their FB page…











The next three choices can all be found along the route of the Rock'n'Roll London Walk this (and every Friday) afternoon…



3. Reckless Records, Soho








4. Sister Ray, Soho









5. Sounds of the Universe, Soho








Happy record shopping!
