Jukebox Records. It was in the left-hand corner of Enfield Town Station – I think it had previously been a newsagent kiosk and if you stretched your arms out, you could probably touch the walls. Sadly, I forget the guy’s name who ran it as a hobby after retirement. I remember though that he was an old Teddy Boy – the shop was filled with those beautiful, almost Kodachrome saturated album sleeves from the 50s and 60s. He used to get a lot of New Wave stuff in too – but he had no idea how to price it. I could really of taken the mick, but I was only 15, very naive and I wanted to see him succeed as there were only two other independents in Enfield at the time; Phase 3 on Lancaster Road and Harum in town, and they weren’t too hot on secondhand stuff.

I remember Jukebox & the old Ted who ran it. I seem to remember buying Ry Cooder's theme from 'Crossroads' in there. Comment: FreakyChuckler

I visited the shop a couple of times when I lived in Chingford. By the accounts I've heard, he had no idea how to price old Ska and Reggae - but sadly, I wasn't in the shop when the original Prince Buster albums were in the racks for £2! Comment: Mark Griffiths.

( Feb 5, 2016) Jukebox was originally run by Colin Bendall;when he retired to the Isle of Wight his brother Terry took it on.I think it closed in the late 90's or early 2000's. Comment: Mike Dixon.
