Yes!

 

I certainly remember Bradleys Records - mainly the Chapel Walk one which was brilliant! I even remember the designs on their bags as well which was a black circular swirl - bit like a record I think - on either a yellow or a white bag. Please correct me here if Im wrong!!! Used to buy loads of vinyl from there as well as computer games in the 80s.

 

Wasnt the other one in Fargate, roughly where H&M is now? I know in this one they had a downstairs department which I can vividly remember buying ZX Spectrum games from lol.

 

Also...when did they finally close? I seem to think about late 80's?

 

Has anyone got any photographs of the interiors or exteriors of the shops?

 

Did they have any branches anywhere else in the region?

I only remember the Fargate branch. I used to buy records there circa 1968/69.

 

Did the Chapel Walk branch take over from Cann's, or was it in a different location?

I remember ordering Led Zeppelin IV there. The hype was to order in advance as it was expected to sell out quick. Wilson Peck at the junction of Barker's Pool and Leopold Street also sold vinyl. I remember listening to Beatles singles in their upstairs private wooden booths, 0 then not buying them due to insufficient possession of necessary funds!

Dave Clayton, if you're still here. You'll remember the mayhem that was the navassa cruise when you were pushed to the fore in a music contest and won it whilst pickled playing Child in time on piano, beating all those leeds kids. Probably shaped your career
