The places where you buy your music
You can tell us more about Lancaster.
- EarEre ...... RIP
- There are no longer really any independant record shops in Lancaster. Only Music Zone and HMV.
- The cool one by the John Cardiff hair salon near the station, and other highstreet shops --- not forgetting Oxfam and the like!
- The one up towards the train station next to the hairdresses! The most random yet funcky selection you'll find!
- theres a couple of good music shops on the market otherwise theres stuff like hmv or woolworths
- HMV woolworths
- Proper Records - used to be on Thurnham Street but keeps moving. After that, Preston and Manchester. Not familiar with Preston, but Manchester has lots to offer.
- Theer used to be a great second hand place in the market, but now it's Woolies, HMV and that's your lot- some inetersting finds can be had in the Oxfam Bookshop, if you're into vinyl.
- "Faeries Wear Boots", 7 Meeting House Lane, Lancaster has been open for 2 or 3 years now (as at Jan 2004). Mostly s/h vinyl but some CDs and music-related books. Opening hours are, of necessity, sporadic but it's well worth it to keep trying as it's a great little shop. (I should know I used to work there).
Contact Larry on (01524)-844833.
- I'd just like to point out that Hedgehog records in Lancaster market has been defunct for years, however since 1998 Play It Again has been located right inside the entrance to the market. They sell new and secondhand CDs and Vinyl, lots of specialist stuff, clothing, posters, badges etc.
- Come back Ear' Ear'all is forgiven. One of the greatest music shops in the area closed several years ago. There is Proper Records for dance fiends but I'm afraid it is HMV (rip-off), Andys Records (pants) or Sainsburys and Woolworths.
- Ear Ere records if pretty good in a small way. Hedhog Records is great for second hand stuff. Also worth cruising the great many charity shops in Lancaster and Morecambe, it's amazing what gets discarded.
- Ear Ere,has been closed for ages! Shame, because it was a great shop, and the staff were good and realy helpfull.
- Proper records but it shut
- HMV....its quite good.... a wicked store on the market and proper records...and an andys records.... and a woolies, which is crap for cds...but it sells some.
- Proper Records
- Ear Ere records near the market, for years was THE only place to but proper music. Not the sort of rubbish that you find in the charts, but the sort of music that gets played in the Sugar House (Local student nitespot). Unfortunately this mecca for music and vinyl lovers has suffered it's demise since the modernisation of the city centre, but it has a very special place in the hearts of all music lovers of my generation, (Age 33), and is well worthy of a place in history (or is it notoriety).
- Alsas, specialist record shops are a thing of the past in Lancaster. There's a second hand shop on Queen St., Hedgehog Records in the market, and one on Thurnham Street. Best place really is Andy's records and HMV (bit pricey though).
- Check oout the indoor market for selection of the finest used CDs
- Proper records - independednt shop specialising in Drum and Bass, house and hip hop
- 'Ear 'Ere Records, Penny Street. Stockist of fine records, loads of indie stuff as well best place to book for national concerts of big bands.
- Andy's Records, St Nicholas Arcade. Very large selection of records and videos.
- Our Price, Cheapside. Standard ex-Virgin record store, music and videos, though not to hot on the videos now though.
