For the record: Instagram account documents weird finds in LP sleeves, “Whether it’s a teenager’s failed attempt at a fake ID inside an Iron Maiden record or a series of foot X-rays in the 2001 Space Odyssey LP — people are stumbling upon some interesting stuff in the sleeves of old records.

Run-DMC & Schoolly D Material Getting Get On Down Record Store Day Reissues: “Ten Run-DMC songs and two songs from gangster rap pioneer Schoolly D are slated to be released by Get On Down Records on “Black Friday” Record Store Day 2015 (November 27, 2015).”

Plans lodged for record shop in Carlisle City Centre: “James Brown, of Dacre, near Penrith, has submitted a bid to the city council that could see a record store and small cafe open in Abbey Street, part of the city’s historic quarter. With a vintage or retro feel to the shop, Mr Brown plans to sell new and quality used vinyl records along with antique gramophones and vintage record players.”

Video Interview: Gilles Peterson on discovering Sun Ra, “Listening to Gilles Peterson talk about music, it’s easy to see how he’s become a trusted source for introducing challenging music to an open-minded audience. Peterson’s knowledge, enthusiasm and wonder are easily apparent, making him the dynamic presenter that he is on his long-running BBC6 program.”

Enjoying the sweet sounds of success: “In a market fractured by technological advances in the way the masses consume entertainment, Neilson said he has been able to carve out a loyal customer base that has kept him in business when the likes of HMV, Chapters and A&B Sound have either downsized or disappeared from the retail landscape.”

Leamington Record Fair celebrates vinyl revival: “The big names for vinyl collectors have always been the likes of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Queen, and remain so, but a new generation of collectors are searching out 90s American grunge rockers like Nirvana and Pearl Jam, and from this side of the pond, Britpoppers Oasis and Blur are popular.”
