Simon's Sale Stores in Barking Road East Ham and Ripple Road Barking. Was friendly with the girl in East Ham and she introduced me to the Johnnie Mathis track 'Life is a song worth singing'- very Norman Whitfieldish-great track. Comment:Oakley Boys 45 cat forum.

Name Jimmy The Moonlight Comment: Simons in Barking was always good for a bargain in the 80s. Had some great finds there after some pie and mash on Saturday afternoon expeditions with Craney and Taylor. Their yellow stickers were a bugger to get off the sleeves, though. Stuck on with cement, I think. Great place to pick up weird European pressings of Beatles LPs. Happy days.
