Wish I could accurately remember names and locations!
There was one in Nottm Centre in the early 1960's that had every record ever. The window display included all those records of Bird Song and the Sounds of Steam Locos etc. I bought my first two LPs there. (Alexis Korner and Duke Ellington. Still have both.. 50 years on...) Upstairs they sold everything from Dansettes to Quad.
Another fave was the basement record shop in the Nottingham Co-op, which in itself was a palace of Art Deco. Fab place. In my mind's eye, I can still see wall displays of albums like 'Bo's a Gunslinger' and others now rare and valuable.
