Hi, I worked there from '72 until '73 when I moved to London to work in HMV Oxford Street. I returned in 1976 and opened my own shop called Mere Green Records & Tapes in Mere Green, Four Oaks Sutton Coldfield. We stayed open specialising in all music until 2008. 32 years wasn't bad.
Keith Randall Rackham's in B'ham had a very decent record department for a while, 1963-70 and the male 'boutique' area always played great records on their own Dansette. That was the first time I heard Freddy King's Hide Away.
