About this item
Graham Jones has 30 years experience as a record company sales rep. Over the years he has collected a huge number of funny anecdotes. He relates the best of them here in his new book "Strange Requests And Comic Tales From Record Shops". The anecdotes come from people who have been often pleased and sometimes bemused to be stationed behind the record shop counter.
The book contains over 200 amusing anecdotes and requests gathered from independent record shops past and present along with tales from HMV, Our Price, Music Zone, Virgin and classical music stores too.
Featuring many delightful cartoons by Kipper Williams, one of the UK's most renowned cartoonists, whose artwork brings great pleasure to readers of the Guardian and The Sunday Times.
Graham Jones is also the author of the best-selling and widely acclaimed Last Shop Standing, the definitive account of the demise of Britain's independent record shops. Graham's book has inspired a celebrated documentary film of the same name which features many well-known musicians, including Paul Weller, Richard Hawley, Norman Cook, Johnny Marr and Billy Bragg, as well as many record shop proprietors.
