Haggle Vinyl


You must tell us DT (a) how you've managed to pick anything decent up in there and (b) how you left feeling the warm glow of customer satisfaction.

I did get a decent Louisa Marks album in there for a fiver in one of the huge piles on the floor but, quite pleased with it, I never went back.

I've never been in Haggle, as it's not on my geographic radar, plus what I've heard doesn't inspire me to visit any time soon.

Haggle is conveniently close to Flashback, which can be worth a look. It's now a complete rarity to find two shops within a square mile of each other. I don't care for Haggle and as Flashback has a web presence there's probably not much point in me making the journey.

Thanks DT. Actually, the London shops that are left - even Haggle - are pretty good if you collect 12"s - there's always a decent selection. I don't myself but I could have a nice little collection by now.

Saturn's flagship store at Hansaring 1 - Koeln/Cologne

CDs only, but always a decent selection!

Does anyone know if Rebel Music (nr. Barbarossaplatz in Cologne) is still going - I'd heard it was well worth a visit, but haven't got there yet.


Hi!

Thanks, Thermos - yes "Music rebel" not "Rebel Music".

I'd had a good look at Google Maps (street view) in the area I was fairly certain it was, but couldn't find it.

At least I know not to go try and find it next time I'm in Cologne.

I won't Very Happy

But if I ever lose my way, there are enough pubs selling some decent Koelsch that I can drop in and "work things out" Wink

Archive Records - Addlestone, Surrey

Don't expect loads of Reggae but has 1000's of records in store + a back up lock up

Great for a rummage, bargains to be found Very Happy

I still haven't been in, Gary - though I haven't forgotten the "Gary sent me!" instruction Very Happy

Music Search in Chertsey has gone - I think it's a key-cutting place now - I bought a few nice pieces in there now and again (when it sold secondhand records and CDs!!!), including an original (according those who know over at Pama) red Coxsone for 25p:

Kingbee records on Wilbraham Road in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Greater Manchester.

I went there all the time in the 90s/00s. Still very much alive and still very much full of soul, r&B, ska and reggae (among others). Les is a decent guy too. Has everything from a 1 box up to rare collectors pieces.

Haven't been since 2006 but I have no reason to doubt it is still excellent...


Another I haven't been to for a few years, but Big Apple Records in Nottingham was good (traditional vinyl shop) ran by Steve Jukes (used to be a well known reggae DJ but sold his collection around 2004) who was also a bit of a character...

Not about a Reggae shop but just an opportunity to post a mention of a piece on Spillers in Cardiff in today's Observer - showing how a shop is trying to keep the spirit of the indie shop going and also a taster for the next Record Shop Day.
