Re: [oxpete] Proper record shops or Reply Privately

HMV didn't seem to want to sell music for the past two years anyway. At least not to anyone who would go to a music shop for it. Several hid anything beyond the mainstream away upstairs or at the back and kept most bizarre back catalogues. The comments on VP's post above ring true with me. Trying to compete with the supermakets for the latest X factor releases whilst marginalising real Music fans and collectors was never going to be a winning business case. Still sad though, I think we had a thread a few months ago with people reminiscing about their HMV moments...

I have already mentioned on here before:

Raves From the Grave - Warminster and Frome. Real proper record shops. great back catalogue and selection, also collectors vinyl etc. They also stock a lot of DVDs and I have found DVDs in there that HMV didn't have, hence why I gave up on HMV.

Theres also Sound Knowledge in Marlborough, although a bit more mainstream and without the collectables.

TBH the demise of HMV will only help these kind of stores.
