Who remembers Streets Ahead, the little record shop on Lloyd Street right opposite where the new cinema is? They were only there a few years in the mid to late 70s and went when Sainsbury's was built. You could get some fairly obscure punk stuff there when no one else was stocking it.

What was the name of the other record shop half way down George Street with the pink carrier bags? Or was that Swales before it moved down to what was later to become Our Price?

This is definately non-football topic     Grin     but.........

I remember the shop on Lloyd Street, very friendly owners who used to let us listen to Northern Soul and gave us orange squash while waiting for the bus, the stop was right outside the shop and was known as "the terminus" after they stopped turning buses around at the top of Railway Stgreet, in front of what was Barclays Bank and is now Manhattans.

Dont remember pink carrier bags, surprised an unemployed coalminer allowed his vinyl to be placed into such a receptacle.  However, I'm sure that Uncle Globnasty once told me a tale about something like this. 

Also, large(ish) record section in Boots when it was where the posh frock shop is on George Street (upstairs right at the end beyond the glass ornaments which were perilously close to the edge of the counters and likely to get knocked by school bags).

There was even one place up on Kingsway, right hand side as you walked up, before the fur shop but after the employment bureau (shame it isn't there still for you, UC).

Remember the "bargain bin" at the old Co-op which almost faced the railway station - got a few classics there

The record shop on Kingsway was Gordons.
Bought lots of early stuff by The Human League there, in the days when they were a 'serious' electronic music ensemble and before Phil Oakey signed up those two talentless dancers as his backing vocalists!

Discount Records on George Street was also a good source of new wave/punk stuff in those far off days.

Oh god, I feel a sudden urge to whip out my vinyl......nothing better than coming home with that newly pressed vinyl, proper order and with decent sleeves for albums...none of your modern day namby-pamby CD sh*te. Gimme a raucous LP in a pink bag any day.

UC bringing back the memories with "Streets Ahead".   I remember to it wasn't there long but long enough to introduce me to the Buzzcocks and I still have The Drones "Bone Idol" in the fold out sleeve that I got there.....spent plenty of pocket money in Gordons as well come to think of it!   Discount Records used to have all those 7" sleeves and coloured vinyl/pic discs all over the walls as I recall.  Good times!

Ah yes Sykes. The woman who worked in the there was a sort of Anne Nightingale/Jo Wiley lookeelikee which was probably a good marketing tactic for extracting pocket money from teenage boys.

I also remember DRIVING down George Street to collect a new "record player"(from Rumbelows I think) and loading it into the boot of my mum's Escort.
