    Do you know any good independent classical record shops in the UK? Nice to browse sometimes in a real shop.

    Thanks Tel. It would be good to have a list of a few recommended shops. The only one I know shall remain anonymous as I think the owner is unbearably snooty and so I rarely ever go there. A shame really as it's local.

    Excellent, MB, getting closer to home for me. I've heard of that shop before. Love the look of the storefront. Is that Rennie Mackintosh?

    Edit: sorry, no offense to the Southerners, all recommendations warmly welcome.

    Strange place called Solaris.
    Actually, I have no idea where Hove and Hereford are, but they sound like they're very far away.

    We haven't any now in the immediate vicinity; all the specialist ones in Leeds have gone and Manchester's best (Forsythe's) have ridiculous prices which are a joke. So yes, it's good to browse and get ideas, but I'd never buy in one anymore - unless it had a good used section as some do now. Cob Records in Porthmadog, where I go regularly, is excellent in this respect, although stock levels are variable.

    Greetings Pianoman. Is there, or was there once upon a time, a good shop in York? I have this vague recollection of a good shop in York but can't find it anymore. Maybe it's just my imagination.

    York = Banks - still there??
    Yep: http://www.banksmusic.co.uk/

    The website's not fully functional, though.

    Yes Banks is still pretty good - actually very much like Forsythe's in being a big music shop that sells all sorts of instruments, pianos, sheet music, and a pretty comprehensive CD dept. though again it's full price (and a bit)

    You may be thinking of a second hand one on Micklegate that also sells vinyl, can't remember the name, not even sure if it still exists.

    I was in Carlisle last summer and there was quite a good place opposite the Cathedral -again can't remember name but it sold books, coffee, and was generally a nice place to spend an hour or two.

    Can't remember the name of the other one, either! I know they used a Blake image as their logo, though!

    .
    The Micklegate one was there last June when I was in York, though I can't remember the name. He had quite a stock of 2nd hand vinyl waiting to be sorted.

    If you're in Rye, Sussex, there's the Old Grammar School record shop in the High Street, big well-organised stock of rock/jazz viny bu the classsical takes abit more sorting through !

    That's it! Blake Records (or Blakehead Records), used to advertise in Gramophone buying and selling. I might be over there quite a bit as the lad is off to York Uni later this year.

    My favourite!

    in a wonderful little place called Bishop's Castle in Shropshire. Beautiful countryside (think Housman / Vaughan Williams "On Wenlock Edge"), and a great shop. Secondhand books, and classical LPs and CDs. Off-beat, and lots of British stuff.

    Cool, now we're getting somewhere. I can see a drive over to Carlisle, a weekend in Shropshire in the spring. Who knows, maybe even a summer expedition to Hove! Keep 'em coming, guys. This is looking good!
