IT IS one of Leeds’s unlikely treasures, a shop that a few years ago seemed doomed to closure.

But despite the advancement of all things digital, shops from a different age can still thrive. Just look at Jumbo Records which is doing so well it needs a bigger shop to store its antiquated records.

Antiquated maybe, but there is a permanance and a romance with vinyl you can touch that digital downloads can and will never possess.

Congratulations, Jumbo, for bucking the trend and proving the cynics wrong. Long live vinyl. Long live real music.
