The ones I can't remember!
The Yellow Pages archive lists all these record shops too, but I have to confess that I don’t recall them!
Kenny Lyn Music Store, 20 York Place
I simply don’t remember this one.
Tiger Moth Records, 25 Meeting House Lane
I don’t remember this one either and find it hard to believe that a record store was once situated at this address given that the premises is currently occupied by a jewellers which looks as if it has been there forever. The Yellow Pages clearly state this as the correct address, however.
Exspantion Record Store, 40 Middle Street
Another one that I have no recollection of and I suspect it may have disappeared at the end of the 60s.
Select Records, 31 Duke Street
Actually this site may rival Fine / Rounder Records as the longest running spot for a record shop seeing as how it is has been occupied by The Classical Long Player for a long time now. I can’t recollect Select Records, though.
Polysound, 15 Gardner Street
I only vaguely remember this one although I don’t know why as it seems to have been around for a while. I think it may have evolved into another shop later on as I definitely remember going downstairs to a second-hand shop in the early 80s in almost exactly this spot.
Dials Records, 32 Prestonville Road
I never knew this store and, as with Brunswick Exchange, looking at the picture it’s hard to envisage a record shop ever existing here.
Red Rat, 46 Sydney Street
Yet another Sydney Street shop, and yet another I don’t recall very clearly. I assume it superseded Vinyl Demand at this address.
Record Hunter, 32 Sydney Street
And another Sydney Street shop that has eluded my memory.
Rave On, 2 Sydney Street
It is just possible that this was the shop I allude to above – the collector’s shop that succeeded Brighton Rock – but, if not, I can’t remember Rave On either.
