Dear all,

I am currently looking for information about record/CD shops in Norwich over the past 40 years. Having found out roughly when they all opened and closed, I have hit a bit of a rut and can't find any other information.

If anyone has an opinion on an old record store, knows any information or has a website address with information on it would be much appreciated.

Well, I live in Norwich and haven't heard of half of them, but my friends father has been here all his life, I'll make enquiries if I remember.

You have missed out the 2 big stores, HMV & Virgin, was this deliberate?

And define 'Norwich' do you mean to the inner or outer ring road, and have you included the stalls on the market?

And finally, why do you want this info, it seems a bit obscure!

Grass is taking over the world. Have you noticed it’s everywhere?
