Comment: I remember visiting this shop in 1977 with my friend Ian. We were both 15 and as I recall there was a huge table at the back of the shop filled with 45s, all 1p each. Not sure where they had come from, there were obviously recent deletions (how many more copies of Teenage Rampage by The Sweet to wade through?) but also an amazing number of reggae 45s on FAB such as the Tennors and a bewildering array of very obscure 45s on Melodisc, including Bulgarian, African high life and cheesy British pop.

I found this advert in the 'Fulham Chronicle' dated 1st December 1967: “Xmas L.P. Record Gift Offer - NEW L.P.s 5/ each (or 25 for £5) worth more than double, for Raffles, Prizes, etc. Visit THE SLIPPED DISC 262 Lavender Hill, Clapham Junction OR 19 Kensington High Street Market.”
… and this advert in the 3rd March 1972 edition: “CHELSEA SINGLE RECORD 'Blue is the Colour' at the discount price of ONLY 45p. On sale at: THE SLIPPED DISC 262 Lavender Hill S.W.11.”
