A Notting Hill Carnival city. A rock city. A rave city. A reggae city. A city of deep soul and funky jazz. A city where, from the Rolling Stones to Stormzy, cutting-edge music has constantly been created ... London rules the game.

London's Record Shops celebrates the greatest vendors of recorded music in the world's foremost record-shop-city. From Brixton dub shacks and Hackney vinyl boutiques to Camden's rockabilly ravers and Soho's feted jazz and dance shops, through Rough Trade and Honest Jon's to Sound of the Universe - these brilliant (sometimes eccentric, always engaging) emporiums are documented with striking photographs and incisive interviews. Anyone who loves music and/or London will find this book engaging and informative.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Full of facts, fantastic photos and heaps of social history of the areas and stores depicted in the book."
"London's record shops - especially those on our patch - have a special place in music lovers' hearts."
"The lovely thing about the book is that the shop isn't the focus. Instead it's a love letter to the culture of these small shops to good music, and the passion, knowledge and enthusiasm of the characters that exist within their orbit."
Four star review.
"The attractive hardback offers a profile of no less than 36 of the London's finest vinyl emporiums."
"Beautifully illustrated throughout with colour photos of shop exteriors and interiors."
