Last Shop Standing lifts the lid on an industry in tatters. Graham Jones has worked at the heart of record retailing since the golden era of the 1980s. He was there during the years of plenty and has witnessed the tragic decline of a business blighted by corruption and corporate greed.
Undertaking a tour of the last remaining independent record shops in Britain, Jones has collected a wealth of entertaining stories that explain why the best are still standing, and how the worst of them blew it.
This is a hilarious yet harrowing account by a man who has been there and sold that. It is a book that will bring a wry smile to the face of anyone who has ever bought a CD or attended a concert, and still has the promotional t-shirt to prove it.
