the Last Shop Standing is an awesome documentary from the UK focusing on records stores. during the 80's there were more than 2,200 independent record shops in Britain. by 2009 there were only 269 left. it spurs me to wonder what the U.S. numbers of independent record stores are and were. i'm so thankful for my nearest and dearest museum of vinyl, the Last Record Store. i will always be drawn to locally owned shops that curate vinyl, which in turn nurtures the community.
