Re: [richiejenn] Proper record shops [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Back in 2009, Graham Jones wrote the book 'Last Shop Standing' (made into a film in 2012) about his work as a record-seller starting in 1986, and the then seemingly terminal decline of independent record shops in the UK. He recorded that in 1986 there were more than 2,200 independent record shops in the country - by 2009, there were only 269.

Now that record shops are opening up again, he has celebrated the fact with a new book: 'The Vinyl Revival And The Shops That Made It Happen', which I bought last week and is obviously a much happier read. As well as writing about the history of record shops, HMV and Record Store Day, he also gives long and interesting write-ups on nearly three hundred independent record shops from all corners of the country.

Here are the six independent record shops he lists in Cornwall...

I was xmas shopping in Edinburgh on Satday so popped in to Vinyl Villains at the top of Leith Walk for a recce. Hundreds upon hundreds of LP's to flick through from all genres. Was tempted to buy but tbh was worried I'd get too carried away and have no money left to buy pressies.

I'm returning to vinyl after 30 years away from it as I'm getting a new record player for my Xmas and will no doubt be frequenting any Edinburgh and Lothians record stores in the new year....

I think there is another one on Leith Walk but tbh it was too bloody cold to go wandering up and down trying to find it !

Plenty of independent record shops to write up about on my recent trip north, starting with the fantastically chaotic...

Henry's Record Shop
117 Station Street
Burton-On-Trent
Staffordshire

http://www.henrysrecords.co.uk/welcome.htm

...which is just a minute down the railway bridge that crosses outside Burton-On-Trent railway station, and stocks a large number of old band and concert posters plus other memorabilia. Also, the excellent Last Heretic micropub is immediately across the road, and the wonderful and famous Coopers Tavern is just around the corner.

Visited before ticking the Spartan South Midland ground of Amersham Town FC was this great record shop...

The Record Shop
37 Hill Avenue
Amersham
Buckinghamshire


...selling a wide mix of new and second-hand vinyl, and run by owner Graeme Campbell. I picked up some second-hand stuff from XTC and Echo and The Bunnymen.

This shop actually has an odd link with the previous record shop I visited last week, Record Collector in Sheffield. Back in November 2015, Public Enemy turned up at Record Collector in Sheffield to perform an in-shop signing before supporting the Prodigy at Sheffield Arena later that night. So much did they enjoy their visit that they forgot the time and almost missed their slot at the gig, having to be rushed there in the back of a customerís Ford Focus and arriving with less than 20mins to spare. When the SKY TV show Urban Myths recreated this story, rather than use the real Record Collector shop on the busy and narrow Fulwood Road, they decorated The Record Shop on the wider and quieter Hill Avenue in Amersham instead as a convenient stand-in.

Empire Exchange
1 Newton Street, Manchester

A visit to Manchester last Saturday (for Salford City v Forest green) gave me a chance to visit a favourite shop of mine - Empire Exchange.

The shop is crazy and sells everything a collector could wish for - Large selection of vinyl records, CDs, books, magazines, comics, decorative pottery and China - pretty much everything you can think of ! Also thousands of football programmes - mostly city & united.
