Comment: I couldn’t believe my luck when The Vinyl Resting Place opened just around the corner from where I lived. The shop was absolutely crammed with records in custom-built racks and boxes in every nook and cranny. Rare record sleeves were hanging from the ceiling and I spent hours browsing in there. Highlights for me were finding a mint stereo copy of Walter Wanderley’s Cheganca on Verve and buying all the CCS 45s on the RAK label at a discounted price! I got to know the couple that ran it and, after it closed, often spoke to them in the high street as they still lived locally.
