Billy Joel “Just The Way You Are” - 21st GRAMMY Awards, Song Of The Year & Record Of The Year
Happy Record Store Day!
“Inspired by Graham Jones’ book of the same name, the documentary chronicles with insight, sadness and humor the rigors of the music retail scene in Britain, and why nearly 2,000 record shops have already disappeared across the UK. The creative team behind Last Shop Standing, a collaboration between award-winning feature film company Blue Hippo Media and Proper Music Group Ltd., captured recollections from more than 20 record shop owners, music industry leaders and musicians, including Billy Bragg, Clint Boon, Norman Cook aka Fat Boy Slim, Richard Hawley, Johnny Marr, Nerina Pallot, and Paul Weller, as they describe how record stores became and still are a part of their own musical education, and a place to cherish and discover new bands and new music.”
