Comment: 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.

Comment: I worked there in 1966.

Comment: 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.

Name: Nick Johnson
Comment: 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.

Name: John Hull Alderson
Comment: I remember buying Ziggy and Roxy's debut from there too. In the early 1970s I had a mad crush on a black-haired girl who worked down Silver Street [opposite the chicken shop] - she even got me one of the first 500 pressings of Dark Side Of The Moon. Fine memories!

Name: Lynda Hill
Comment: Ask Johnny Pat, he worked there. There is a story in his book about it. I worked there 1973/4.

Name: Amanda Ward
Comment: I remember Stardisc, down South Street. A guy called Derek had it in 1979 and my boyfriend at the time, Shane, worked there. We used to always pop across to the salmonella shop for our lunch LOL.

Comment: Stardisc 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 DJing 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 on this subject visit Around and Around.

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.
