Hi!

In 2 weeks I'm going off to London.

Where whould you recomend to look for some rare Queen records, or just 7" singles?
I guess it's easier to find some good stuff in London than Oslo...

I'm going to see the We Will Rock You musical, but are there any other "Queen - places" there's worth going to?
Like the Garden Lodge...?

Thank you SO much :)

The Record Exchange at Notting Hill is quite good. HMV is so big, you'd probably find something of your liking there too. Otherwise I don't really know, been to London only twice...

Been in London last September and was shocked to find out that most free record shops and even several chains have disappeared. In Soho there used to be a street some years ago, where you had several shops in a row...all gone.

The remaining HMV shops only have the regular stuff, the only interesting shops I discovered in Notting Hill in Portobello Road, where the big flea market takes place every Friday and Saturday. Saturday is the big day, but I recommend the Friday, when it's less crowded.
