Rockin' Records in Maple Rd.Penge was a great shop,an unexpected,hidden oasis of wonderful 50's music-tho they sold all types of music- up a side street in SE 20, a vital part of my musical education as a teenager in the late 70's/early 80's.I bought my first Little Richard LP,my first 50's R&B LP's(Joe Turner,Ruth Brown etc) and some of my earliest Doo-Wop LP's from here-they'd have things like U.S Relic LP's, The Jive Five & Maurice Williams&The Zodiacs LP's in the window,that seemed exciting and mysterious when I was first discovering the music.I never knew the name of the chap who ran it,but many years later in the 1990's,when he opened a CD&record shop in Beckenham Rd.(near Clockhouse Station) called 'Glass Onion Music' we remembered each other.
