Jumbo Records

In the beginning…….
Hunter Smith established Jumbo Records in September 1971, the name and logo coming from the successful disco and DJ business he was involved with called Jumbo Mobile Discotheque. The shop was started on the suggestion of an acquaintance who wanted someone to sell records at the back of his cassette and tape equipment store to encourage customers to come in. Hunter, still DJ-ing in the evenings around the clubs and dance halls of the area, and not being one of the most early of risers, decided, after a lot of deliberation, to take up the offer. Some loans, shop fittings and stock were organised, and he set off trying to learn as much as possible about the business and keep abreast of all the new releases each week (the Tams – “Hey Girl Don’t Bother Me” was at number 1 in the charts followed by Rod Stewart – “Maggie May”, plus Isaac Hayes – “Black Moses” was our first good selling album).

Jumbo Records has been established for over 30 years. They stock many musical genres and still have a large selection of vinyl, in addition to stocking many accessories including replacement styli for record decks.

The shops experienced staff can help you with back catalogue through to the latest releases. They also have the resources to search and check that the titles required are available. Jumbo also sells concert tickets for all the best gigs and events in the area.
