    I am very loyal to my record shop but am thinking of taking a trip down to London/Birmingham/Other and wondered if you have any recommendations for really cool record shops, I like a shop where I can spend a few hours just listening to stuff



    Cheers!

    BM Soho is a good one, they're really helpful if you ask for recommendations.

    be careful though, i walked in only wanting a few tunes walked out with over 100 quids worth!

    I go to Selectadisc in Nottingham for mine. It's a good shop for vinyl,Cd's etc. but I dunno, sometimes the selection is not wide enough for my liking...
    There are others that I know of that specialise in 'electronic' music but not so clued up :D

    That's probably true, but nothing beats rolling into a nice, friendly record shop and looking at what's there...

    Yeah, I just love the experience of record shopping, I don't order off the net, can't really beat that buzz you get in the shop when you find something special...

    Sisteray on Berwick street in the west end is sick. Also Knowhow is sick. All about the music exchange shops, I've picked up some GEMS from those places!

    to be honest i wouldn't recommend BM soho, when i went there they had barely any new stuff in, and a seriously limited selection, drum and bass section was tiny! I know what you mean by chilling in a record shop just listening to tunes, much better than getting them off the internet and its not that much more expensive anyway.... Banquet records in Kingston is good though and the brehs who work there are bare friendly n helpful but i doubt you'd be comin to this part of London...
