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!
