News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Re my previous post i was just one of many supplying stock to shops etc - my van had RCA Records emblazoned on it (Elvis was alive then!)After a few of my colleagues 'lost' their van's......(!) RCA supplied us with Hertz rental vans which were common and didn't draw attention to the contents inside.....

Just joined the forum - this subject is close to my heart as in the early 70's i used to drive around Kent in a transit van calling at least once a week on retail record shops, Boots and WHS (not Woolies).
I would make around 12 calls each day and supply all the back catalogue and new releases from my van - LP's, singles, 8 tracks (remember them?) and the first releases of cassettes
Some great shops of the period have long gone - i think i can re-call most of them and spent the following 36 years in the record business
Happy Days!
