Islington, Shoreditch & Crouch End open 10am-7pm Monday to Sunday
The Islington branch was set up in 1997 on two floors in a parade set back a little from Essex Road.
The ground floor has a wide selection of New Vinyl, CDs and DVDs, whilst the basement is a well-organised treasure trove of second-hand and collectors vinyl - a crate digger's paradise.
50 Essex Road, Islington, London N1 8LR.

The Shoreditch branch was set up in 2014 in a large two floor property on Bethnal Green Road, just at the top of Brick Lane.
Now with a dedicated Soul, Jazz and Reggae basement, the Shoreditch branch rivals Islington for depth and breadth of stock. It also hosts regular instore gigs by well-known and up and coming artists.

The Crouch End branch was the second Flashback to be set up in 2006, taking over from Listen Records who had operated in the same location for many years.
A smaller shop than the Islington branch, the Crouch End branch still covers all types of music, cramming in as much quality stock as possible.
