Wow! Robinsons Records, we used to come in from Ashton and it always was the last stop before home. Used to buy Johnny Winter US import albums, the smell was great, could only ever afford one at a time, if I had a time machine I'd go back and buy them again and again, a real time of discovery for me still at school and those 70's classics were only a few years old back then when Johnny was like some wild albino alien blues playing god to me....in the best sense. Last record I bought was upstairs when there was a lonely couple of stacks of LP's next to DIY stuff! When we used to walk downstairs it was almost like walking into 70's New York a million miles away from the Manchester streets and those records, god knows how they got them, were like nuggets of dreams...magic!!
