There was a great reggae record shop on Lark Lane in South Liverpool called Samba Records (i am pretty sure it was called this) - this would have been around 1984 - 1986 - i think the guy who ran it was called Ricky. It was a great store and stocked everything under the sun from reggae to frankie goes to hollywood. (i know this as i bought two tribes in there as a 13 year old girl without them laughing at me!) Sadly, i don't have any bags or any memorabilia from there either.
I remember Samba Records. I used to buy Reggae records from them. I still have a Samba bag! I'm pretty sure they had another shop in Smithdown Road. The guy that ran in was a Rasta and very friendly. Comment: Russ ReidComment
