  • British Record Shop Archive - Museum of Soho - Berwick Street

    Passed a fantastic pop up exhibition in Soho about record shops in Soho
    Loads of info ( in fact maybe too many words!) great pictures and record bags
    Well worth a visit if you are passing

    I went in on Saturday. Talk about a blast from the past...and further back too. A few missing, but as you say, well worth a visit.
    Everyone tear down your own little wall
    That keeps you from being a part of it all
    Because you've got to be one with the one and all
    You've just got to be close to it all

        121. Disci - you can see it in this fine night-time shot of Piccadilly Circus:

                    Mr Bongo is on the map above - no.86 - shown at it's final location Poland Street.

                    It started off, if memory serves, in the basement of Daddy Kool Records when they were in Berwick Street.

                        I used to go to Bongos then, down the stairs on the right. I remember a guy with a head of curly hair, maybe a goatee, wasn't dave, was it Rufus something? Then it went to Lexington, split in half with brazilian and latin in the back. Then Poland st. A sad day when it closed.

                          I'm sure the map's right but I remember Groove being where 56 is, not 55?
