OLD SKOOL, OLD, OLD SKOOL: One of things that always gives me nostalgia for a time that I wasn't around is when 50's and 60's set Americana shows someone going into a record shop, and entering one of those booths where they could play the entire album before deciding if they were going to buy or not. Obviously, you don't get things like that any more - record companies are sticking out so much sub-standard shite they'd never tolerate a try before you buy policy (and we know this is what lies at the heart of their fear about album leaks, don't we?). However, the New York Times reports a store in LA is trying to revive the idea... of course, Sony and Universal are going to hate this, but lets hope the idea catches on.
