“I’ll never forget when Woolworth’s in central Croydon stopped selling vinyl LP’s in the early 1990’s. They gave over the whole top level of their building that opened on to the Whitgift Centre to sell off their remaining stock at knockdown prices. Most people’s perception of Woolies was that they only sold chart records, but I found ‘Folkways: A Vision Shared’ (1988) in the clearout racks there. I also found an eclectic mix in the West Wickham, Kent branch when I visited a year or so earlier. I bought Nanci Griffith’s ‘The Last Of The True Believers’, with it’s very appropriate cover photo of Nanci standing outside a Woolworth’s store! My local branch in Lower Addiscombe Road, Croydon yielded the soundtrack album of Martin Scorsese’s film ‘The King Of Comedy’, a most unlikely find!” Dave Harwood ( April 3, 2016).
