Regal Records Clapton and my fave M+D Dalston Lane. Run by a guy called Lee who was always going to go home to Trelawny. Hope he made it.

Problem is with record shops lot of them not online and the record shops that are online do not put all their proper stock online so they want to make you visit the shop premises too.

This business way Is very clever :D :D :D :D

That maybe correct and we could discus moving with the times, rent prices, taxes, business rates etc,
however, the post is more about a nostalgic look at record shops past and present.

Oh yes i totally forgot about M+D's then it was a quick step to Hy Tek to drool over their electronics/sound gear then off to Johnson & Jones Second Hand and repair shop to see if there were any audio bargains

Peoples Sound - All Saints Road
Honest Johns - Portobello Road
Dub Vendor - Ladbroke Grove
Dub Vendor - Clapham Junction
Summit - Birms

I remember around 03 I went to Oceans in Hackney to pick up my tickets for the World Cup Clash....and driving back we went past a shop that apparently was regularly closed, but the owner just opened it as and when he felt to. It was open and so we went in, owned by a white bloke......very disorganised, just boxes and crates of 45's everywhere.....pretty dusty.

No idea what it was called.....if anyones got any idea i'd love to know...

Just text one of my mates I was with and he thinks it might have been called Reggae Revive

And that it closed not long after that...

@ Livingbate
Reggae Revive was (in one of its incarnations) in Chamberlayne Rd in Kensal Rise. I wonder what Bob Brooks is doing now.

Does Rough Trade's one time suburban outlet in downtown San Francisco count? Used to be the place to buy reggae along with Rasputins and Leopolds (before Amoeba).

Been to Peckings shop in London and always wanted to get to Daddy Kools if only to be sneered at by the proprietor, according to legend anyway.

Went around with Jah Reel to a couple of other shops but they mostly were closed. Blacka Dreads place was one of them I think.

Yes of course it does, if it sold reggae it counts
