Another Eastleigh memory from the 1970's was Jack Hobbs record shop. Outside the shop were racks of LP's and inside by the counter there were the 45's ex juke box records, they were cheaper then new records but had the plastic centre missing.
What are your memories of Jack Hobbs ?
What was the first record you brought (not necessarily from this shop) mine was "I love Jennifer Eccles " by the Hollies in 1968, I was 14!
Bought my first 45 there, ‘Hey girl don’t bother me’ !!!
Omg! So many memories spending my pocket money on records, I bought so many in there but the first one was Wings Helen Wheels

Tiger feet - Mud -ex juke box and bought a stack of the plastic bits you put in the middle in anticipation of my future purchases!

Jack would go out of his way to order something you requested that he didn't have in stock... i believe gnidrolog in search of harry's toe nail was one of them (in the days of john peel)
The legendary Jack Hobbs' Records, #Eastleigh, circa early 1982. Site of my early vinyl purchases. Must be a Sunday, as front was usually filled with racks of MFP/Pickwick LP's. Pic from #Bishopstoke History Society.
My first record was Jimmy Ruffins I'll Say Forever My Love and I bought it at Jack Hobbs in Eastleigh.
