Sound It Out – The last surviving vinyl record shop in Teeside, North East England.

Sound It Out is essential viewing for anyone who loves music. It’s also the official film for tomorrow’s Record Store Day.

A 75-minute documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England, Sound It Out is a lovesong to a disappearing way of life. Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days.

A cultural haven in one of the most deprived areas in the UK, Sound It Out documents a place that is thriving against the odds and the local community that keeps it alive. Directed by Jeanie Finlay who grew up three miles from the shop.

    Superb documentary especially if your youth was misspent in second hand record shops, or if you love Quo!
