    I think Lucky 7 is gone. Alan's Records is (IMO) the best record shop in London. Wide genre selection, everything is priced to sell, always in at least VG+ condition.

    Book & Record Bar in WeNo is my local.

    Also worth checking in South London - Rolling in West Wickham, Action in Beckenham, Rat in Camberwell.

    Also Sounds of the Suburbs in furthest West London is worth a visit if you're travelling via Heathrow.

    Yes! A great selection of single especially, and only 5 mins from my home (not sure if it's really on the way to Heathrow, though).

    Pure Vinyl in Ferndale Road, Brixton is worth a visit. Opened recently it's stocking everything but Reggae. The owner can direct you to her partners shop in the arcade over the road for Reggae too. They used to both operate out of the arcade but the shop there is tiny and the new one on Ferndale is much bigger.

    Thinking about it, if we got just the London members of this forum together for a swap meet we'd probably decimate sales in London record shops for a week :)

    Agree not on the way to Heathrow, but only 5 mins from my houses as well. I do try and pop in most Saturdays for a browse, and normally come away with something.

    Cheers Frank

    Yoo-hoo, I am in South Ruislip :wave:.

    Also good in our area is Nightfly Records in Uxbridge. Some good prices. I wonder if they are Donald Fagen fans?
