Comment: I worked there from 1972 until 1973 when I moved to London to work in HMV Oxford Street. I returned in 1976 and opened my own shop called Mere Green Records & Tapes in Mere Green, Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield. We stayed open specialising in all music until 2008. 32 years wasn't bad.

Comment: Rackham's in Birmingham had a very decent record department for a while, 1963-70 and the male 'boutique' area always played great records on their own Dansette. That was the first time I heard Freddy King's Hide Away.

I found this advert in the 'Birmingham Daily Post' dated 24th November 1964: “RACKHAMS OF BIRMINGHAM require a RADIO, TELEVISION & RECORD BUYER. This is an excellent opportunity for the successful applicant, with previous retail experience, to take a department in one the country's most modern and progressive department stores. This is an important position with potential and considerable benefits. Apply for this position to the Personnel Department, RACKHAMS LIMITED, Corporation Street, Birmingham 2.”
