Ok, since i kinda hijacked the 'Last album you bought' thread,i apologize and created a thread according to the subject.
First of all avoid big stores like Virgin or HMV unless you can't find a record anywhere else.I bought an original promo of Electrelane's 'Axes' for just 1 in Flashback(wich i already mentioned in the other thread).It would have cost me in the region of 13/14 if i had gone to the above stores.

MUSIC & TAPE EXCHANGE, 95 Berwick Street, London, W1V 3PP, 020-7434-2939
Sister store to the Notting Hill collective, has a decent selection of all styles of music from prog rock to techno, with a bargain basement downstairs which, over the years, has yielded many gems, including mint copies of Gina X's No GDM and Chas Jankel's 3,000,000 Synths in the past couple of years.

website






 


The above have many branches but as an ex employee i know that both the ones in Camden town get the best stock and have excellent basements.

Reckless is good,yes,but not as good on obscure stuff as M&V(they simply don't get as much stock).The good thing about Reckless is that their staff are paid better and therefore are better mannered with the customers.I sorely miss miss their branch in Islington wich has been swept off to make space for a luxury gay bar.

the reckless on berwick st is way better stocked and priced than the m&v, i haven't been to the one in camden, as i prefer not to go to camden if i can help it.

Oh if we are talking about the branch in Berwick Street you're right.How many of them have you visited,out of curiosity.

Reckless isn't as good as place for selling though, they're very fussy about what they'll take, and pay no more than M&V, who will take just about anything so long as it's legal.

Not secondhand, but I've very quickly come to like the new Fopp up near Cambridge Circus. Damn good place for a bargain.

And there's a good place on one of the side streets off the lower part of Berwick Street too. I can't remember what it's called - it's on a corner.

I'm sorry to disagree on this one sonicl but Reckless do pay more for your records.Music Exchange buy for a third(A third!!) of the price of what they sell and are sharks.Trust me,i'm your doctor.

If anything the staff at Reckless are generally less knowledgable.

But in Reckless I can find what i want more easily, so I don't need knowledge.

This doesn't go for the dance shop though. I haven't a clue where to find anything in there.

I don't know. It has a post punk section on the right as you go in the door.
