    Unfortunately, Beanos is due to close, the guy who owns it wants to turn it into smaller retail units so no more records there. In fact, I've been offered about 5000 of their 7"s.

    I spent many a happy saturday hanging around Eastern Bloc, waiting for Graeme Park or Dave Haslam or someone to turn up and go through the new records, it was the nearest us 12 year old kids got to being in the hacienda in those days.

    Windows is primarily an instrument and sheet music shop. I wasn't aware that they sold CDs at all, but apparently they do.

    It's been a few years since I was in there so I suppose it's possible that it's changed a lot, though I find it hard to believe that an established shop would move towards CD retailing at the moment.

    Cob Records is Porthmadog (North Wales) is excellent. It smells like cross between a museum and my dad's old whisky cupboard.

    There is a book called "The Last Shop Standing" which is about the demise of independent record stores, it's interesting and funny. However ultimately depressing for any record collector.

    Also to add to your list

    Leigh Records - Southend-On-Sea
    The Record Museum - Southend-On-Sea
    The Record Shop - Southend-On-Sea
    Bubblegum Records - Southend-On-Sea
    Minus Zero 2 - Camberwell, London

    Does anyone else agree that Leeds is terrible for second hand record stores?

    Are there any I don't know about that are in the surrounding area?
