    Looking at previous threads, Rat Records and Rolling Records were recommended.

    Any info special events or places to pick up cheap stuff much appreciated.

              Soul Brother = Don't Bother

              Very expensive and a bit of a trek on the District Line.

              Rat Records is great. Drop me a PM if you're going as I'm not far and can bring some treats for you.

                  Shed Shop in Harrow. I've never been there but he comes across as a nice bloke on his youtube channel.
                  it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
                  take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

                    I might be in London in the not-too-distant-future. I have some modern classical stuff I could bring - is there a good place for trade/store credit for that stuff?

                      Possibly also some 'ethnic' bits and pieces.

                        Same thoughts re: Paris (excuse the minor thread hijack).

                          Yeah, Lucky Seven is truly excellent....a diggers delight for sure! Fresh piles of vinyl in daily, mostly under a tenner, friendly staff, great sounds! Open every day so you don't even need to think twice...just go! Rat Records is another top destination....not been for a coupla years and it used to be that all the new stuff would go out on Saturday so by Friday it was slim pickings indeed but that might have changed.

                              Lucky 7 gave me a headache - huge piles of crud & the few half-decent things I found were battered. I bought a heavily overgraded 45 from them online which I had to send back - I'm always a bit dubious about shops that sell online as well... But if you've found good stuff there maybe I should give it another go.
