A Memory of Harlow.
I used to spend many an hour in Startime with headphones on listening to what was new. In 69 I went there on my dinnertime from Gilbey's to buy the new Stones album Let It Bleed. There was a queue right round the Market Square doing the same thing. Unbelievable but I got a copy. And I used my paper round money in about 63 to buy a 5 speed racer from Blakes. It was 5 bob a week total cost £16 which was quite a bit then as my dad was on about a fiver a week.Helen Donovan
Remember it? I was always in that shop, leafing through the 12” soul and jazz funk records!
