Comment: In Edinburgh we had the much missed 'Record Exchange' (snappy name), with listening booths and a wide stock of new and used vinyl, I spent a lot of Saturday afternoons in there, wish I could go back with a pocketful of cash... the owner was another grumpy git who called every customer 'mister'... there was another place near the Hibs Stadium just off Easter Road where I used to go to on Friday lunchtimes when I got paid. It was close enough to my work to nip along and get back in an hour - more of a junk shop but the owner must have been buying promo copies from someone as I picked up a few Blue Horizon 45s there.

Comment: Recent casualty. A very odd shop that stocked tons of easy listening mid-price rubbish and the occasional gem priced in a way that suggested they had no idea. Often a good source of newly released non-mainstream or indie stuff at ridiculously low prices. Seemed to have had a copy of Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out by The Rolling Stones in the window for decades.
