I worked upstairs in 2, Station Place, which was next door to Harveys, at Sotosound, which was a growing record wholesaler.

Harvey's was a small-ish shop run by Harvey Zeto, who was an energetic, enthusiastic, cheerful, and hard-working guy with a love for soul music. I'd often hear "Joy And Pain" by Maze blasting out from his shop door.

He had a sign on the wall saying something like, "Heaven helps those who help themselves, but Heaven help anyone helping themselves to anything in this shop."

After a year or so, Sotosound moved to larger premises in King's Cross, so we lost touch. As far as I can tell, however, Harvey later switched to jewellery.
