Sheffield's great record shops - 13 photos of city's well-loved record stores of the 60s, 70s 80s and 90s

In this era of downloads, streaming and internet shopping, Sheffield has lost many of its record shops.

But back in the 1960s, 1980s and 1990s, and even the 2000s, the city was full of them, in the city centre and out in the suburbs. We have put together a picture gallery of some of the most fondly remembered – and are pleased to say that one of these great shops is still running today in the same unit as it was in the 70s.

Many of these were the places to go to buy records over the decades, whether that be The Beatles in the 60s, Abba in the 70s, Wham! in the 80s, or Oasis and Blur in the 90s.

We have found pictures of as many of the city’s iconic shops as we could. But many out there will also have fond memories of some of the city’s other great record shops, such as Roulette Records, Fon Records, and Warp Records, all in the city centre, and places like Roadhouse Records, in Crookes.
