Soul Stop Records, Stamford, Lincs


Recommended Posts

Anyone remember this outfit? The images might be too small to read. List of available vinyl from around 1978. Most selling for £1.25. Thought some members might find it moderately interesting.

KEN COX ( Dawn promotions ) used to operate out of his own home think it was 189 Casterton rd how I know ? Use to live opposite and pop over at school lunch time 79/80 his records were at the rear of the house . I got to know Ken quite well over the next few years , he was a great guy always interested what records you were buying etc.                               Remember him having small quantities of things ........ Gil Branding , Billy Hambrick , Gene Woodbury all for £8 each and Larry Houston and King Tutt for a mighty £ 10 each far too much for me at the time . He also had most of the GRAPEVINE label run . Think most of the above came from " SOUL BOWL " never the less HAPPY DAYS ! 

Then he moved all the records to his new premises at St. Mary's St ....... two doors down from Stamford Music shop ( which is still in business today ) think Ken now lives in Thailand best of luck to him ...........
