Comment: Bought my first copy of Innervisions there the Saturday after Christmas in 1974. Think I got Focus at the Rainbow there too. Virgin in Coventry by The Birdcage was the place to buy records back then. An album was normally £2.19 but only £1.80 in Virgin back then, which was quite a saving when you were still at school. Discotrak was a cool shop though for a small town like Kenilworth. As far as I can remember the only alternatives were Woolies and the electrical shop on Warwick Road on the corner with Queens Road.
