Memory Lane Record Shop Northampton, was at various locations, no one remembers that it was at 104 Kettering Road Northampton for a short time, scan is of Memory Lane price sticker with address on a reggae album 45p!!

(May 5, 2014) Paul Motley said:Memory Lane had two family owners, Dave Goodacre who sold it ex Sergeant Mayor Thompson who was Tony Thompsons Father, Tony inherited the shop on the death of his Father. Tony carried the business on and traded from Bridge Street until it closed approximately 7 years ago, Tony was a highly respected local DJ died some four years ago after entering into acute depression, Memory Lane records was never in the fish market under his ownership although the name Memory Lane was never copyrighted so anybody could have traded under that name sfter the shops demise.

I found a listing in the 'Northampton Herald & Post' dated 13th August 1992: “MEMORY LANE RECORDS 44 Bridge St., Northampton. 0604 27447.”

Dave Goodacre was my brother , I worked with him for a couple of years at the emporium arcade. Unfortunately he passed away 2 years ago. I can still remember a lot of the records and which label they were on.
