    I noticed Vinyl records in Asda too
    Morley, West Yorkshire
    A section of them - I think they had Led Zep 2 and "Bridge over troubled"

    The TV adverts for Father's Day Records/ CD's always assume that dads only like Bit Pop type stuff (Oasis, Dodgy, Supergrass etc.) or compilations of "Rock Classics" featuring Free, Steppenwolf, Meatloaf etc.

    Personally I'd rather be trapped in a "Dutch Oven" after Mrs. P had a meal exclusively of cruciferous vegetables than have to endure that done-to-death pap.

    I know my girls would not make that assumption. They will ask me what I would like. Favourite choices at the mo would be Jorja Smith or Lake Street Dive.

    The "record store" unit in my local Sainsbury's has drifted from being front of house to a dark corner of the shop. It has only ever seemed to contain the same dozen or so LPs, with the noble exception of the two compilations curated by Bob Stanley of Saint Etienne. Last autumn I read that those Own Label records were to be the first in a series but six months down the line things seems to have gone quiet.

    If music is reduced to being commoditised as a choice between 12 "classic albums" for a Father's Day gift then that's rather missing the point. It's a bit different to baked beans or bog rolls and my family know that I love music, so they'd never dream of buying me a packet of it from a supermarket. Top of my current wish list is Orange Goblin's 2004 LP, which I suspect isn't on Sainsburys' radar...

    The two latest Bob Stanley compilations were released last week, a Hank Marvin compilation and a synth pop compilation. They had them in my local Sainsburys but I'm not interested in them.

    Bob Stanley? I'm thinking the stamp bloke but I guess it isn't him. Hank Marvin, lovely bloke but never saw the point of him or The Shadows. Synth pop....no thanks. Not keen on the organic variety much so deffo don't want the ersatz version.

    The Shadows were the first pop group I followed. I loved Hank Marvin's guitar sound, and still do.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    My mum was quite keen on them. I remember them being on the telly one night and her insisting we all watch them. After all of her build up when they came on we were like 'What? Is this it?'

    That would be about 1977.
