    I just recently arrived in London and would love some recommendations of great record stores to check out. Im into Jazz, Fusion, Prog Rock, Krautrock, Zeuhl, Canterbury Scene, Psych Rock, New Wave, Funk, Soul, Afrobeat, MPB, Tropicalia, Minimalism etc. Basically music from the 50's all the way to the 80's. I'd prefer stores that have used original/early pressings as opposed to new reissues.

    I've already visited Rough Trade East and the Soho stores Sister Ray, Reckless Records and Sounds of the Universe. Any others I need to check out?

    Try Cosmos as they carry and specialise in a lot of those genres. They're located at 324 Hackney Road in East London
