Comment: I bought a few singles form this stall. They were a bit cheaper than Boots or WH Smiths, but I do recall having quite a run of poor copies of records with jumps and scratches from there. They also used to do a thin freebie list of all the releases that week. I remember having the copy of the one in which 'Trail of the Lonesome Pine' was released and only later did I see it get to number one. Was it a Christmas number 1?

Comment: Felix & Sons were located in Derby's Market Hall, and I bought quite a few records from them from 1966 onwards - mainly singles. I'm not sure if I bought my first record from there (it was the Stones' Last Time single, a present for my mum) but I did buy my own first record there - the magnificent Kinksize Hits EP. The young lad who often served me was Richard (Felix), now quite well known for his "Haunted" videos and as a local historian who is involved with The Derby County Collection, a charitable trust that's authorised by DCFC to collect and curate the Rams' heritage artifacts.

I found an advert in the ‘Derby Daily Telegraph’ dated 18th November 1975: “P. L. FELIX & SONS - A WIDE SELECTION OF LP’s and SINGLES, RADIOS, BATTERIES and VARIOUS ELECTRICAL SPARES - MARKET HALL, DERBY.”
