I'll start with the negative: the prices are very high here, with some iconic but fairly common records selling for 30£.
On the plus side, they have a listening center, and they'll gladly unshelf a record (the pricier records are removed from their sleeves and kept behind the counter) for you to inspect and listen to. The turntable mat, however, was filthy/hairy.

In the sleepy, gentrified urban village that is Crouch End it is a pleasure to stumble across something like a second hand record shop. And one that has its sister in firther down in Islington (see separate reviews, Flashback Records, Essex Road).

Flashbacks is a pretty basic store selling used cds and dvds. They didn't have Kate Bush ( something I always look for to determine whether a record store is good) but they did have good prices.
I will come back to Flashbacks to buy Little Britain (my favourite show) seasons one and two for 6 pounds! That is like 70% percent of the price or something. Seriously this box set was more than 20...more
