I did quite a few times, never had any issues with him or Tony (Silver Camel)
from the days when they were located on Hanway Street W1, when my older brother used to take me to the west end where he would go to the soul n jazz record shop (Contempo I think it was called) a few doors along the street,
Those were the days when you could get
JA "7 pre's for £1.25,
pre LP'S were around £3.75 - £4.50
12" 45 were £2 -£3
was gutted when the price went up to £2 Then £2.50 for a 7" pre
(some thing to do with the oil crisis - the Iranian Revolution then the Iran–Iraq War)
Even when they moved to the larger shop in Dean St W1 had no issues returning tunes even if some were brought
in haste


So we’re those prices from 1979? If so, prices are similar or cheaper today:

£1.25 = £6
£4.5 = £21.64
£3 = £14.23

Just out - Garth Cartwright's Going for a Song: A Chronicle of the UK Record Shop, https://www.facebook.com/groups/bloodan ... 946041498/ - "features the wise words of Bossman Steve Barrow about his early adventures in mod clubs and seeking out ska 45s through to setting up Daddy Kool and working for Honest Jon's. Plus plenty of stuff on Dub Vendor, Rita & Benny's, Intone, Desmond's and other legendary vendors of JA vinyl!"
