Savilles Music Ilford
(April 21, 2015)Savilles were a chain of music shops in London. I’m not sure when they opened a shop in Ilford but they were there until the early 1970’s as far as I can recall. The Ilford shop was quite large and had racks for browsing but even more interesting was they had proper listening booths. These had folding glass doors and you could sit on benches and listen to your request. I have distinct recollection of being with a friend of mine having asked the assistant to play us The Doors “Strange Days”. This was a shop that also sold some instruments and sheet music.
