Comment: I still have this bag. The soul imports in the 1970s were so good. I loved and spent most of my spare time here, I was introduced to Wattstax, Bowie, Motown. It was a great meeting place, and you felt so good when you ordered an album and walked out with it under your arm, dying to get home to listen. My greatest memories are in music.

Comment: If this is the Osborne's that was in Parsons Street, Banbury then I have very fond memories! Saturday afternoons [in the] 1970s listening to the latest vinyl on huge headphones in the little booths! You could spend ages in here before staff realised you weren't buying, just killing time. David Bowie, Marc Bolan, Rollers, Dooleys, Sweet, Slade, Suzi Q - I could go on and on. Happy days!

Comment: Went out with a lad who worked upstairs, his name was Chris. I worked in Dillions up the road and we would go for a drink in The Flying Horse after work. Loved Osborne's, [the] 1970s [was the] best era ever. Oh to be young again.

Comment: OMG what a shop this was in the 1970s - it had a fantastic smell of, well, records! The picture of the bag from a previous user brought back so many memories - rock on!
