If I Had A Pound ……………..

If I had a pound for every time somebody told me how busy I was going to be for the next 6 weeks I wouldn’t need to be busy for the next 6 weeks. With the Jazz Festival and Kid Canaveral next weekend and the Festival soon to follow they have a point but I can’t pretend it won’t be a relief when we actually are busy every day and not just weekends. This Saturday was saved by three large sales and that may be how it goes. We may have lots of customers or just less customers buying a lot. I’ll happily settle for either.

Worrying to see shops who vowed never to have sales or mention prices now advertising “first ever sales” from 99p or £3 or whatever. There was a time when you could be sure that an album at £3 was pretty sure to be shit. Now there are lots of great albums sold at that price. What message though does it send out to the customer. Avi Buffalo seems to be very cheap everywhere. It would be understandable that come the next album people think they will just wait. I remember being told by several people that at least things would go no lower than £3. It simply isn’t worth processing CD sales at lower prices. And then I saw this
