Today the independent record shop Big Pink Music closes in Manchester's Northern Quarter. Lots of trouble for high street record shops as reported here and here but I would have hoped that the specialist, independent and 'niche' retailer such as Big Pink could weather such storms. They provided a diverse selection of Americana, folk, blues and jazz plus reggae, world and general rock i.e. most of the stuff difficult to find on the high street with great personal knowledge and always reliable recommendations. Sad day. Visit today if you can.
