Graham JonesGraham Jones should be in the Guinness World Records for visiting more record shops than any other person. The true story of Graham’s time spent working in and around the world of independent record retailing is every bit as colourful, funny, strange, and occasionally sad as any fictional yarn. Over the years Graham has collected a vast number of funny stories and anecdotes, which appear in his books ‘Last Shop Standing’ and Strange Requests and Comic Tales from Record Shops’. Last Shop Standing was turned in to a successful film and featured Paul Weller, Johnnie Marr, Richard Hawley and lots of record shops. His new book The Vinyl Revival and the Shops That Made it Happen, a guide to independent record shops in the UK that sell new vinyl and has also just been turned in to a film.
