HMV Records was the UK equivalent of Tower Records—even bigger than Tower, probably. I put the date at early 1985 based on the The Smiths’ Meat is Murder LP in the third shot, released in February 1985. You’re also going to see Bowie, Floyd, New Order, Siouxsie, Thriller, the Ghostbusters soundtrack, Black Sabbath, Men at Work, Flock of Seagulls, Springsteen, Tears for Fears, The Police, U2 (when they were good), The Jam, Simple Minds.

The photos are from a Flickr pool called HMV Norwich in the 80s.
