Which small record shops? :D

London was full of them until the 1990s, especially in Soho.

Still a few around here which are mainly catering for collectors. Pie and Vinyl in Southsea and Harbour Records in Emsworth are two that immediately spring to mind.

I need to do more research into this area. People now ask me if I have a CD player before they give me a CD of their latest music. A lot of the younger generation don't have any physical playback systems at all, CD, vinyl, cassette etc. A lot of DJ equipment can now play wave and mp3 files. Any electronic parts I supply are invariably played back on a laptop as 24bit wave files. Things are definitely different now than they were even a few years ago.
