Many thanks to Richiejenn of this parish, who recommended me visit...

The Diskery
99~102 Bromsgrove Street
Birmingham city centre

http://www.thediskery.com

...which is a wonderful old-fashioned second-hand record shop about a ten minute walk south of New Street railway station, just on the corner of Bromsgrove Street and main A38 Bristol Street. Packed from floor to ceiling with vinyl, including old 78rpms, lots of old 45rpm singles (including a lot of Northern Soul), and a huge quantity of jazz, plus much much more. As Richiejenn says, the place oozes nostalgia and is worth a couple of hours of anyone's time.

What with needing to head on to Halesowen Town FC, I had to limit myself to just a pocket-full of CDs and the promise to myself that I'd be popping back again on a more convenient day for a proper explore. TheWavendonian meanwhile had to refuse himself entry outright, knowing that otherwise he'd have been lugging large boxes of records across the terraces of Stourbridge Road before spilling a pint of Pig-On-The-Wall over them and then leaving them on the top-deck of the no.9 bus! But as I said to him, what else in life is there worth spending all your money on?!

Here is a short film to give you a good idea of the place...

A new second-hand record shop has opened up at...

Paul's Vinyl Frontier
45 Market Parade
Havant
Hampshire


...in the parade of sixties-built shops just outside Havant railway station.

I recently read an article that said that the opening of an independent record shop is often one of the early signs that a town centre or a high street is turning the corner towards better times. If that is so, then hopefully it is good news for Havant town centre, which has been looking a little run down over the past few years.

Good luck to all involved at Paul's Vinyl Frontier.

I've heard the news that Sainsbury's supermarket, after claiming to be the UK's biggest seller of vinyl records, has set up its own record label: 'Own Label'.

As I'm not really a fan of supermarkets, I'm not too sure how I feel about it at the moment. However, hearing that their first two releases are to be compilation LPs put together by Bob Stanley of St.Etienne, I'm actually really quite keen to get my hands on copies.

News that...

Oxfam Music Shop
171 Byres Road
Hillhead
Glasgow


...sold over 100,000-worth of vinyl records, CDs, tapes and musical instruments last year, making it Oxfam's highest grossing shop for music sales, with over half of the takings were from the sales of vinyl records. However, they have apparently sold a rare Celine Dion cassette for 700!

Sadly, two record shop closures...

'Bert McCormick CDs & DVDs' of Ballyclare, County Antrim, is closing after forty-two years of trading, as owner Bert is retiring at the age of 78. The shop opened on 1st July 1976.

And 'Head' in the Priors shopping centre in Leamington Spa is closing after over ten years of trading. A sad day for those losing their jobs.

Popped into the brilliantly old-fashioned...

Oldies Unlimited Vinyl Records
89 Darlington Street
Wolverhampton
West Midlands

http://www.oldiesvinylrecords.com

...on Wednesday afternoon to blow more hard-earned wedge in the best way possible. Nine second-hand albums (including two great Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra LPs) and not a single blemish or scratch on any of them. They stock a wide range of vinyl stretching right back to the 1940s. A really good shop.
