Graham Jones - The Vinyl Revival and the Shops That Made It Happen (Book)
The Vinyl Revival and the Shops That Made It Happen is the story of the vinyl revival through the eyes of those who made it happen, the independent record shops.
It explains why more than a hundred more record shops have opened since 2009, and how others have gained the reward from their hard work. Budget turntables, manufactures, supermarkets, chain stores, clothes shops, pressing plants and even the government are among the many who have benefited from their efforts.
Graham Jones (who previously authored the acclaimed Last Shop Standing) has spent 32 years travelling the UK selling to independent record shops and visited more record shops than any other human. This book guides you around the record shops of the UK who sell new vinyl. He has gathered some fascinating and funny anecdotes told him by our much-loved record shop staff so that when you visit you will feel like you already know the characters behind the counters. It is perfect for vinyl fans to keep with them on their travels around the country.
