Knights had a shop in a prestigious site on Broad Street but latterly re- located to a smaller shop on the corner of Friar Street and Union Street. Comment Steve Maggs.
Knights was the place to hang out on a Saturday. Had an extensive record section down stairs but also had a large toys and games department upstairs with all the current video games being demonstrated. Would spend hours up there...Good times. Comment: Barry Case.

Hi There ,really great reading back about Quicksilver and seeing the photos. It was without a doubt the must-go to store for me in 79/80/81' . I would listen to Soul/Jazz-Funk DJ Robbie Vincent on a saturday lunchtime and then rush up to Quicksilver in the afternoon to buy the latest ' Import '12 inch & albums i had heard on his show. Always a fine selection of Genres, but i would be mostly interested in the Soul ,Jazz ,Funk & Roots Reggae. Along with 'Knights'Record Store in Caversham ,it's the store that holds the sweetest memories ,in my influential years . Thanks (Feb 17. 2017) Richard Rowland
