Used to love the Leytonstone branch, I went there a lot as a kid. I think they closed down in about 1981-82ish. Would love to know what happened to all those records though, even just very shortly before they closed down they still had lots of records in the racks.I remember Ebony Sounds very well, I used to go there when I was a kid, from early 1978 until shortly before the shop closed. I used to look forward to taking my pocket money and picking up a couple of 60s/70s 45s and the odd LP at the weekends! There was also Roach's around the corner which seemed to have tons of racks of long-unsold early 70s prog. If I remember correctly they closed around the same time.

So could Alan Dunbar served me back in the day? Fair hair and moustache, didn't say too much?
