Despite the advent of cassettes, compact discs, mini-discs and MP3s, the trusty vinyl record will always have a massive place in the heart of any self-respecting music fan.

For Crash Records, part of Leeds’s music scene for more than three decades, vinyl is now their main source of business.

The shop on The Headrow in the city centre is home to thousands of albums, ranging from classic rock, dance, hip-hop and punk rock - something for every palette.

Crash Records, like so many music shops up and down the country, has benefited massively from the recent resurgence of vinyl, stocking many times the amount it did just five years ago, as music fans once again turn to the warmth and comfort that the classic format brings. It’s easy to see why, you simply cannot beat the feeling of the needle dropping.
