Afternoon!

I'm a massive Trojan records fan and was wondeirng if there is any sort of trojan records HQ in London?

If not are there any record shops about that people would recommend that sells good trojan vinyl?
Also in the Birmingham/Coventry area, severe lack of decent record shops up in the midlands or am I not looking hard enough?

Help would be much appreciated

Rob.

You're in the wrong timezone Rob - you need to go back to Brum circa. 1975 and record shops were hanging off every street corner Rolling Eyes . I have links to the Midlands and I'm afraid there's nowt left bar the Diskery, Music and Video Exchange and the usual HMVs (Summit in Stephenson Street - the last West Indian owned shop in the City - has sadly closed its doors now). We can help you out London-wise I'm sure.

Hi Rob (welcome to the forum Smile)...

No "Trojan records HQ" any more - the label and catalogue were taken over by the giant Universal Music Group in mid-late 2007.

Releases have been sporadic since then and note very "edgy" - no vinyl releases since then either.

There are still a few record shops in London selling or spcialising in Reggae - dotte around, we can help when you need it Wink
