Whilst "tidying" the loft recently I came across this paper bag from the 1970's . It is from Hyde Music Centre which was a shop that sold albums, cassettes and 7 inch singles and was a mecca for music lovers all over the area! From what I remember, the owner was called Alan. The assistants always seemed so cool, too!
I used to love this shop and spent so much time (and money) in there. I especially liked the special order book which had all the imports listed including the Northern Soul ones - I still have all the records I bought in there - some now quite rare!
Sadly, the shop closed it's doors circa 2002 and Greenhalghs Bakers now occupies the site. If anyone has any photos of the music centre shop , I'd be very happy to show them on here!
Ahhh, happy days ! :)
