The beat must go on

On the BeatIf you’re in the market for running there’s one for sale on eBay. Described by the owner as “A vinyl treasure trove with a pulsing, groovin’ history steeped in its very walls”.

Up for sale with an asking price in the region of £300,000 it may not be for you if you’re looking to make a fortune. The seller happily states it’s for you “If you’re at the stage in your life when you don’t have to worry about making money but can live the bohemian life, meet interesting people every day and the occasional pop or rock star”

After five decades in which the owner says he’s given the shop his heart and soul, it’s time for him to step down and let someone else let another passionate music lover take over. As he says… the beat must go on!

Thanks to Tamebay reader Russell for spotting this on eBay.

    I walk past this shop every day… I have wondered how they manage to stay in business!

    I’ve been a professional record dealer for almost 30 years and I bought the entire contents of Vinyl Experience which was just a few yards away from this shop , as well as the contents of their Camden shop for a little more than of 10% of this guy’s asking price…..he’s a dreamer!
