What I could never understand about HMV (apart from the ludicrously inflated prices) was the inability to understand the market they were dealing with, and the lack of a response to change. With the rekindling of interest in vinyl you would have thought that this would have been an area for HMV to exploit but the shop in Manchester had a magazine style rack pinned to a pillar that held no more than 40-50 albums and that was it.

Fopp, on the other hand, have expanded their vinyl section and it's a great place to shop for decently priced reissues. I bought a couple of Isaac Hayes albums for a tenner each only last Saturday.

Apart from the loss of jobs I really couldn't care less about HMV disappearing but I hope that Fopp can be salvaged from the wreckage.
