The Record Album
In 2018 The Record Album celebrated 70 years of serving the record-buying public of Brighton and beyond. The shop, which opened in 1948, sells all kinds of music from pop to classical but it specialises in soundtracks, cinema and theatre. It was recently described in Garth Cartwright’s new chronicle of the UK record shop, Going For a Song, as “as Europe’s foremost soundtrack shop”.
Once curated by the legendary George Ginn, who has retired at 88, the shop has passed to new owners, Keith Blackmore and David Chappell, who are determined to keep up its traditions for lovingly cared for records of all varieties. And the shop is open six days a week.
