(May 28, 2015) I remember the Maidstone branch well, it was a popular meeting place. Comment: Andrew Sargent.
Wendy Carter: “Gooses Records was no 122, next door to Singers, opposite WH Smith. It was one of the first shops in the Whitgift Centre and there were still builders there when we opened. I worked there from day one and managed it after Bernard Brown left and worked with my good friend Jane. It was the 2nd biggest self service record shop after HMV in Oxford St. I left in 1972. Those were the days! Loved it.”
Comment Remember it well, bought my first LP there, T.Rex's Electric Warrior. Name Jeremy Isaac (2018)
Comment I remember getting all my new albums of favourite bands at your store on the day they were released. I would be there on the dot opening time. If I remember rightly this included many Genesis albums. I think the lamb lies down, Rod Stewart every picture, Rory Gallagher deuce to name but a few. How many years did it stay open for?
