(15 Feb, 2015) Chequers, in Lee High Road, Lewisham, owner was Terry, assistant King 'Enry Best DJ records/12" 70's/80's. It was my regular Saturday morning hang-out with best friend Vince.
Geoff's Super Disco - Jaspers, Catford SE6 - Geoff, Vince (Greg Edwards) & Gary. Anyone remember?
Remember it all so well. Down to Jaspers (pink, then green entry cards). Then off to see Terry to get the latest 12'' remixes heard. Great times!! Remember Geoff (small guy) and Vince in his Greg Edwards style voice. ha ha ( July 27, 2016)
I was a Saturday boy here, probably circa 1978/79/80 or so. I think the spelling in wrong BTW, I think it was Checkers. Terry was a 'Character' and King 'Enry had great music taste, we later worked together at EMI Records. It was a great education, I was DJing so spent my wages on records, I clearly remember records such as Chic's 'Good Times', Slave's 'Just A Touch Of Love' and Bobby Thurston's 'Check Out The Groove' coming in on import, breaking the shrink wrap and .....Wow! Great Memories.
Best record shop ever, used to get all my picture disc's (Seargent Peppers, Human League, Gary Newman etc) coloured vinyls (Squeeze, Billy Idol, etc) and shaped records (Belle Stars, Toto, Edwin Start etc) there. Good memories.
