Name: Julie Ross
Comment: I am 60 now, I remember having to order from Terry Blood back in the day, good days.

Name: Tony Greenwood
Comment: He delivered wholesale record orders in his first gold-coloured Rolls Royce to our Wilmslow shop, on another occasion I was on the same flight as Terry, Glasgow to Manchester, he'd agreed in principle to sell to RS McColls, we were rat-arsed!

The one classic memory was on a Sunday morning at the Warehouse, he put on a new release single, and shouted to me, "Tone, it's gonna be massive, it is, you mark my words!" He wasn't wrong, Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street! I remember Tony Denson and John Isaacs who worked for him.
