There was an All Ears branch at 245, which is where I think I saw mountains of unplayed copies of 'The Trojan Story' in 1978 (it may have become 'Bargain Records' by that time). 'Bargain Sounds' also had a shop in Rupert Street Market where some of the `71-`74 Trojan LP titles could be had cheaply, I guess after Frank Lea had bought the company from Rodd.
