Comment: The branches in Manor Park and Barking were a treasure trove of deletions. We discovered so much great music in there. The Barking branch had a giant foil picture of Dean Martin on the window. The Manor Park branch had big wooden cabinets at the back.

I bought so many great records from the Manor Park/East Ham branch. I'm sure I bumped into Norman Jay MBE in there in the late 1980s. I used to buy lots of doubles, even triples from there - great funk & blaxploitation LPs. I went to the Barking one as well. I wish it was still there. I still buy and sell records now, always collecting plastic fantastic 🔊🎧

My favourite group of record shops - I remember Billy Bragg working in the East Ham branch. I was collecting soundtracks and easy listening in the early 1990s before they became popular and Low Price was a fantastic source.

The owner let me visit their warehouse in Mile End - an old church packed full of old stock. Bought multiples of lounge classics like John Gregory - 'Man for All Seasons' and the Rotary Connection albums. All £1 each.

Those were the days.
