Name: Geoff
Comment: A fantastic shop back in the 1970s when I bought many rare Blue Note, Riverside, etc jazz LPs at really good prices before jazz started to get picked up by a younger audience and the prices went up!

Name: Bob Young
Comment: Hard-to-find jazz and blues, a lot on import, before the age of re-issues and expanded box sets! Excellent shop.

Name: George Turnbull
Comment: That must have been the great second-hand record shop where I found not one but three George Shearing CDs. Has it disappeared?

Comment: I loved the Garon in Cambridge but never knew that it was one of two. I knew the (very knowledgable) boss was Gavin, but also didn’t know that he gave two letters to the name of the shops. A browse in Garon was de rigeur every Saturday morning in the 1980s and 1990s, usually ending with a tough decision as to which of the ten or more desirable recordings earmarked for purchase would have to be left for another time. Then a few steps up King Street for authentic espresso in the much-missed cafe “Clowns”.

I found this advert in the 'Cambridge Daily News' dated 25th September 1987: “Further details from Garon Records, 70 King Street, Cambridge, Tel: 62086.”
