Talking about music shops in Sauchiehall Street,I was looking through the images of Sauchiehall Street on the Mitchell library came across Clydesdales Electical goods shop.That took me back to my youth when my mate and I queued up overnight for tickets for the Rolling Stones concert in the Apollo.I remember a lot of banter that night,very orderly and the tickets at face value.
And a great concert,great seats Mick Jagger in pink satin suit and skip cap.It was a gas rolleyes.gif


Hi Jupiter..Clydesdales was a pretty big electrical retailer in those days with branches all over the place. in its early days my late father was the firm service manager...........Aye a fair few years ago.

I queued overnight at Clydesdale's for those Stones tickets in 1971 as well. A group of us went straight there from school with sleeping bags and folding chairs and stuff like that. Great laugh and I got the front row balcony seats I wanted!

Hi I was just reading these post about Biggars being in Sauchiehall St and remembered that I had an old record from there that my granddad got. But it was Biggars Recording Studio in Cambridge Street from 1956. But I don't know what it is as it doesn't have anything much on the label. Just the name an address of studio and the names of the vocalist, pianist and drummer and the date. And I don't have a record player lol.

I recently acquired a collection of old 78rpm acetate records, one of which is labelled "biggars recording studio", 102 sauchiehall st glasgow c2 (phone douglas 7121). unfortunately no reply on this number. the record was probably a one-off, by george mcalpine and his band, with the gay gordons on one side and dovecot park on the other.

I have not been able to research the record further. Another name /mystery from the past.

Can't help with the band though.
