Name: Oakley Boys
Comment: Simon's Sale Stores in Barking Road East Ham and Ripple Road Barking. I was friendly with the girl in East Ham and she introduced me to the Johnnie Mathis track Life Is A Song Worth Singing - very Norman Whitfield-ish - great track.

Comment: Simons in Barking was always good for a bargain in the 1980s. Had some great finds there after some pie and mash on Saturday afternoon expeditions with Craney and Taylor. Their yellow stickers were a bugger to get off the sleeves, though. Stuck on with cement, I think. Great place to pick up weird European pressings of Beatles LPs. Happy days.

Comment: At university in London in the late 1970s it was Simons Records on Oxford Street. Stupidly cheap, and a huge selection.
