It's 1974 you just heard that such-and-such album is being released, you have a few bob (usually around 1.50/2.00 for an LP) in your pocket.

In ye olde Birkenhead there were two immediate places you may go, either Skeleton or Rox Records, but darn it they are closed on the very day you are itching to get that LP. Name the third place you could go to pick up that sought after album. smile

Nope, their album range was pretty limited as I recall, unless you were into Top Of The Pops, Jim Reeves, or Max Byegraves, tended to be big on singles.

You may well be right on that, but not the answer, plus the market stall would not have had the most recent releases at that time, as shops tended to be the sole outlet.

Great shout, had forgotten Rishworth's but in terms of selection there was another one that would, more than 'Rushies' have likely had the album you wanted, Not that you would think so from the exterior (hint hint)

Rushworths sold records and had listening booths, also the coop had a record sales area, i think.

Stall by the entrance in the corner of the old Market always had the latest releases, I used to be fortunate enough to get records off them at cost. Brilliant shop.

What was the shop in Grange Rd West ? Was that Rushworths.
Not only could you get records but also pre-recorded reel-to-reel recordings, if you can remember them !!
Also there was a shop up there were you could rent 8mm / 16mm films in the days before video. Maybe that was Rushworths

There were also James Mackenzie in Grange Road West and Ryalls & Jones, taken over by Rushworths, probably well before WW2!

Steady old bean folks may think this is all becoming a tad personal on your part, whereas I know it's your infectuous sense of humour smile
