Always gold to be found here. Or, at least there was - I havent been in over 5 years.
When Really Good Records in Plymouth was based in the original shop on North Hill (near the university), it looked like this. The lack of any real filing or organisation used to encourage hours of digging though. The second site, in the bus station, was very spacious and well laid out, but it wasn’t quite the same.
It’s down the road from where I live now but I have never been. Always mean to check it out but mainly find myself in digital rabbit holes nowadays as opposed to crate digging. Must give it a try.
I once went well out of my way to visit Alan’s. It was closed that day🤦♂️
Great shop, though like you I don’t think I’ve been for around five years or maybe more.
I loved the NO DEALERS sign above the jazz. Didn’t he chuck Gilles Peterson out once?
Always stuff here. Alan is an absolutely lovely guy to boot.
Where it all began for me…great shop, still gems to be found in the current spot too.
Found it overpriced and had nothing much of interest when I went. Although I had been pre-warned the owner was a dick on DJH. We got the comment ‘those two are just inside to keep out of the rain and won’t buy anything’
Had to restrain my mate who was ready to go and punch him.
The copy of ‘life’s what you make it’, (ironically?) sits in the rack at what is still over the discogs median with two other copies I found for pennies.
I live close by too and it’s well worth a visit. Always some interesting finds
