New Documentary on Record Shops Coming

The book Last Shop Standing:  Whatever Happened to Record Shops? is a great survey of the decline of the UK record store by Graham Jones.  It’s now being turned into a documentary that explors “the rise, demise and partial resurrection of the independent music retailer.”

If you haven’t read the book yet–it came out in 2009–it’s definitely worth the time, especially if you’ve spent much of your life flipping through record racks.

There’s no release date for the doc yet, but the producers are hoping to make it available through both DVD and on British TV.
