My all-time favourite was Caruso and Co. They were near the umbrella shop (I think that’s gone too) where Shaftesbury Avenue meets Bloomsbury Way. Owned and run by an Old couple in I think the late 80s who loved all aspects of great vocal music. Can’t have been that busy as they were happy to chat and play you music for hours. Mainly Opera but I think I bought my first album of Chanson form them. After that they moved to a pedestrian alley somewhere in in Fitzrovia(?). But it didn’t last long. I went back there one day and it was shut. One of the hairdressers smoking outside next door, said they’d hardly been open since the move and she though that he had become ill. Within a year it was gone. I have projected all kind of romantic notions into what happened there.
