Opinionated record shops

w/e 2023-08-06 (Phil Gyford’s website):

My only specific memory of shopping in Revolver was going in to buy a ticket to see The Wedding Present play at The Studio in 1991. I asked the guy behind the counter for one and, as he reached for the book or box or whatever, in which they kept tickets, he said with a look of distaste, “Well, I suppose Buffalo Tom are supporting.” It was that kind of place.

There is no better thing on this earth than a record shop (or book store) with an opinion about what’s good.
