Operated in the Oxford Road in the 1980's/90's.

(July 7, 2012) Ian Andrews said:I used to work at the Record Basement - with Pete Sinclair and Phil Wells - got paid in Vinyl every saturday ... happy days

(August 19, 2015) One of the cornerstones of Dance Music Record shops. It was not only a meeting place, a pilgrimage, but also supported one of the best uk rave/DNB records labels we had. A great loss indeed. Comment: James Curry

“THE RECORD BASEMENT 163 Oxford Road, Reading. Tel. 573922 NOW. Many rare Soul, Jazz, Blues, 60's, and Rock Records. Plus all the current Dance tunes. 5 minutes from town centre.”
