    Tony Rounce who some people may remember as the club promotions guy at Impulse in the early 90s - doing Acid Jazz and Mo Wax amongst others - worked there as a Saturday boy in the late 60s and has often done stints there since. He has great stories of selling and discovering many records throughout the period of the early 70s, and his photographic memory remembers which tracks were for instance big with the West Indian community, or with the suburban soulers etc.
    Terry at record corner is a living in genius in my eyes and Rik s dope too,
    that shop started in the 50s!!! sayin that terrys hair is very white

      As far as I know he's still doing his mail order stuff. Last time I spotted him was at a soul do in Wigan a couple of years back.
      The Expansion shop near Victoria Station was ace, thats really where I started disowning hip hop, remember taking the plung & paying £12.00 for a Marva Whitney 45 which was my weeks money!! Roy Ayres Vibrations LP was another, which looking back I was stung on, but top geezer with some MEGA funk records (If anyone has heard him DJ funk then you know).
      a lot people got stung in that shop ,ripped off , faulty goods that s why people didnt shop there

Other shops of the time were Dave Godin's Soul City in London, Record Corner in Balham, there was a place called the Diskery, I think, near Birmingham somewhere, another shop in Manchester.
        FL's was definitely in Leighton Buzzard (or should that be  Modern Romance?)

        Another source of imports in the 60s apparently, was Paul's for Music in Whitechapel which I can remember visiting as recently as 1985! (I was a precocious child). He had lists of records which you looked though and selected what you wanted and then he'd go and retrieve them for you. I got Martha Reeves (UK only) "No One There" 7" off him once.

        Don't suppose the shop is still there, is it?

          Chris...

          The one in Latham?
          I still nip out there once in a while, they sure are friendly guys!

          Hve you had anything from Records & Relics recently? Its always dry when I hit it, although 'bout a year or so ago think he had the biggest shed load of lib's.

          DJ XL (he aint famous, i just can't remember his name) who we used to hang out with once got Headless Heroes & the Italian job outta the beach market shop.
          i killed the 45s in records and relics mate, got mad stuff and lots of it, julien from the creators got a lot of the librarys early on and you by the sounds of it too, i got some good librarys n nice lps but damn the 45s i got

          • Blimey, nip out for a day or two and have a full-length book to read through! Someone mentioned Reg Guest Syndicate's 'Underworld', which prompted me to check my 'Get Smarter' comp (boot?) for the following: dunno if they're rare, but they are listed on there as UK 45s...

            Beatstalkers 'Baseline'
            David 'Sleppin'
            John Schroeder 'Night Rider'
            Julian Covey & The Machine 'Sweet Bacon'

            best of the lot is probably:

            Van Doren Hawksworth Collection 'Pinball'

            dunno if these are rare, or how rare if they are, but all good 'uns. So is

            Life 'Cat's Eyes'

              These are both b-sides (and cracking tracks too ).
              You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

              • What are they the b-sides of, Rich? A couple of others that come to mind are:

                Spaghetti Head 'Heavy Axe' (is this UK only?)
                Georgie Fame: 'Somebody Stole My Thunder'
                Shadows: 'Scotch On The Socks/Boogatoo' (dunno how rare these are, but never seen it...)

                Quite a few Georgie Fame ones, I'd imagine, and some nice ones even on fairly common 45s (like the 'Beware Of The Dog' instro on the flip of 'Bonnie & Clyde&#39. Are there many Brian Auger 45s about? Don't see them much...

                And another that seems fairly scarce is the (uncredited) Vic Flick 'Shell - Sounds From Fuel For The 70s' EP which has 3 cuts from 'West Of Windward' on it.

                Not too rare, but the Mood Mosaic 'Touch Of Velvet, Sting Of Brass' is nice too, with a Vic Flick/Jim Sullivan b-side 'Bond Street PM'...

                  Isn't "Boogatoo" credited just to Hank? On the b-side of some Cliff 'n' Hank 7"...?

                        &#39;Night Rider&#39; is the flip of &#39;Agent Double-O Soul&#39; (also a Spanish EP on Hispavox with these two tracks on one side and two more on the other, and a US issue on Cameo Parkway).

                        &#39;Sweet Bacon&#39; is the flip of the aforementioned &#39;A Little Bit Hurt&#39; which got at least two issues on Island (also issued with a P/S in France on Fontana [?], Germany, Australia...)

                        And &#39;Spaghetti Head&#39; was also issued in the US (?) on Private Stock, Spain... Still after a copy myself.

                        As for Brian and Jools, the only UK one I have is &#39;Indian Rope Man&#39; on Marmalade. Polydor Germany seemed to press a lot of their tracks on 45 (anyone have a &#39;Good Morning Starshine&#39; for me?).

                            The Diskery is still open, just outside the city centre, next to a big gay hotel and round the corner of a fantastic moroccan sheesha cafe. It&#39;s been pillaged &amp; looted but there&#39;s still enough to be had if you&#39;re willing to spend a whole day diggin&#39;. And yes, the people behind the counter are lovely chaps.

                            Another one to add to the list was one ladyboy introduced to me at Cat&#39;s eye - life I think this was a minor hit so it might not be considered rare (especially since little old me managed to find it).

                              I think you might be referring to The Quiks - Bert&#39;s Apple Crumble.  Everytime I&#39;ve seen it it&#39;s been a £100   although it has been booted &amp; comped many times over, don&#39;t recognise the label you mentioned so it might be another one you&#39;re referring to.
