Hands Music Kingston

Top Of The Charts for under a tenner

Advantages: Cheap witha good range of albums
Disadvantages: needs mor dance/trance stuff

Music Zone in Glasgow I think is widely used in Glasgow. It is an attic shop in Sauchiehall Street. You'll find brand new albums and current chart albums for £9.97. Older albums will be under that. This shop has to be the best in Scotland if not UK for CD ...
