They met owner Derek Burbage and heard a touching story about a gig at a Winchmore Hill barbecue by Martha Reeves

Derek has outlasted HMV, Virgin Megastore, Tower Records etc. Pondering sleeve notes and designs on a 12″ vinyl offers far more than funding Apple or doing other anonymous downloads. Not that I’ve bought vinyl for years – had a good 12″ single collection though. All lost in past house moves and such.
