Stardisc, South Street. A great place to spend a Saturday afternoon. I remember the weekend that The Stones' "Let it Bleed" was released when they must have sold hundreds of copies. And then next door to the Wimpy for a coffee and a No.6.

Remember the branch on Silver Street very well. At the time the most important shop in Hull! Still have many records from there and a Stardisc bag.

I remember being at South Street the Saturday after The Stones' "Let in Bleed" was released. They must have sold hundreds of copies that afternoon. Sydney Scarborough often seems to feature as Hull's favourite record store but I always thought Stardisc was the best.

Star Discs from Hull also did deletions as well as juke-box, and by the 4/3d (22p) price tag were later, and I picked up a few with intact centres. I did a little party DJ-ing and picked up most of my Motown classics as ex-juke box. The thing is obscurer soul was also among those unplayed deletions. I couldn’t match them to the sleeves because long ago I married them with the right sleeves. For more this subject

I found an advert for Stardisc in the 19th July 1972 edition of the Hull Daily Mail:
STARDISC FOR 8-TRACK CARTRIDGES and CASSETTES. Hundreds of new titles now in stock at the Tape Depts of both SILVER STREET and SOUTH STREET branches. Have you visited our new Discount Record Store at 118 SPRING BANK (near Forth Garage) STARDISC MUSIC CO.
