I seem to recall peer group (born 60) hanging around a record shop diagonally oppo Fforde Green pub at Harehills. Was it Scene & Heard? Early 70's. Comment: Jogon

I remember a record shop on the short parade at the other side of Roundhay Road to the Fforde Green, which I believe was called Project Records. I once bought a good condition second hand copy of Johnny Shines' "Last Night's Dream"LP, Blue Horizon, there, which is now apparently worth a substantial sum of money. I still have it, but it's a good 'un, and won't be parting with it. Comment: jim

Yes, it was called Project. Possibly with striped blue and white paper bags. It sold secondhand records, the price depending upon the condition of the record (which you could examine). The biggest problem was that they stuck a big sticker on the top right of the front with the price and when you tried to peel this off, it took half the record cover off with it! I can remember trying to touch-up my copy of Paranoid with a felt-tip pen!!

(May 4, 2015) Yes, Project records used it a lot when in need of beer money or gigs. It always seemed to have several copies of Strictly Personal.The last record I bought there was Gloria b/w My Generation live with John Cale. Great days. Comment: Glenn Drury
