Record & Music shops


Recommended Posts

Don't know if this warrant's nostalgia, only about 28 years ago! There was a shop on Heathcoat St, Parliament St end on the right hand side callled the Big Apple, sold mainly records. Recall the chap that worked there played Acoustic Guitar, they also provided free toilet facilities and a free cup of Tea! Prices were steep however, bought the first Traffic album for  £8.Recall an Album by a David somebody there On the Elektra label 1967-69 ..never seen it before & produced by Paul Rothschild..should have bought it but £12 ouch!!

 

Thanks for reminding me of the 'Our Price' shop on Clumber St. I think it closed in about '85, only ever bought one record in there,  in the closing down sale, for 75p .Johnny Winters 'Guitar Slinger' which I recall being a newish release.

I've posted this somewhere before, but I'm surprised it isn't on this thread; Arkwright Street, but I don't remember there being two shops almost next to each other. And this, the version on Goldsm

This brings back a lot of memories. From Picture the Past, it's the record dept in the basement of Boots on Pelham Street, taken in January 1972. Around those times I spent a hell of a lot of money he

The chap who ran it was Forest terrace legend Steve Dukes, top lad.

That's the one, Cliff Ton, it was the second album, remember at first I thought it was a Tim Buckley release.

 

Radford Red, as I said mostly records, on the left wall I was thinking comics but wasn't sure, maybe football programmes?

Radford Boy, this is way before my time, but I recall a picture of a trolley bus that left me thinking , was that a record shop? Same side as the cemetery, a few doors down Alfreton Rd. Would this be Papworths?

 

Yes , that sounds about right. They were complete music store selling guitars etc. as well as records.

Katjay, don't recall the shop in Clumber Street being called Hindleys. It was an electrical store that sold TVs, radios, washing machines etc.

I had a Saturday job at Texas Records on Weelergate

A lady asked me if I had jingle bells on a 7"

I said I got dangling balls on a 10".

She said is that a record?

I said it's not bad for a fifteen year old. :crazy:

In all the years I was buying LPs (and I had 100s), I've just realised for the first time that I never looked to see if there were any record stalls on Vic Centre market.

 

I remember at least a couple on the old Central Market.

I remember at least one in the old central marker that bought and sold trade ins. Got a few bargains there.  I wasn't into hi-fi in those days so put up with a few pops and crackles.

Mick Wyatt ran Pendulum Records until he retired & the bloke who took over died soon after, there was also a Father & Son record store sold ex-jukebox singles & 2nd hand LPs in the early 80s.

Pendulum was a great place. First right at the entrance, remember it was difficult to see the owner with all the sleeves on display, arm came through to collect your cash!

Think I remember the other stall, never bought many 45's, it was much further in, wondering if it had any thing to do with the stall that traded comics?

Think I may have exhausted my Nottingham record shop memories at basic level. Does anybody recall the record fairs? I recall five venues, also a touring set of dealers i think called Pennine, this was roughly between '81 and "92.
