About Us

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 described in Garth Cartwright’s 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 retired in 2018 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.
