Come along and browse our stocks of classical music CDs and DVDs. We also keep Nostalgia and Comedy, Opera and Spoken word Drama, Jazz, Film, and Musical Theatre recordings.
We also have an interesting and increasing range of deletions and other difficult to find CDs available in the shop, an opportunity to fill gaps in your collection.
Well worth a visit. See our latest newsletter

Mahler Symphony No.10
Seattle Symphony £12.95
With the original founder of the shop back in 1987 Richard Gibson retiring after 30 years, now that he nears his mid-seventies, and his co-director Tom Barkes concluding that the future of recorded music is via the internet, a decision has recently had to be taken to close the Goose Gate, a decision of great sadness and regret but economic reality cannot be ignored.
Our last day will be Saturday 1st July
Most of the classical only CD retail outlets that were around 20 years ago have closed and we feel proud that we have done as well as we have for so long. But classical music has been largely sidelined by government and in schools and this hasn’t helped.
It is a very sad moment for we have made many friends over the decades and have enjoyed the endless conversations about music, and many other matters.
Tom will continue to run the stall we have had for many years at the Royal Concert Hall and hopefully at other local musical events. He will also continue to supply CDs to our regulars here and throughout the UK and further details of his plans will emerge on this website over the next month or so.
Needless to say there will be a clearance sale with multi-buy offers on many items. And don’t forget we have many nearly new and warehouse clearance lines with many CDs no longer available in the UK.
