Thanks to a surge of interest in vinyl, some record shops are managing to stay open or in the case of Derby's BPM, reopen.

BPM's shop on Sadler Gate specialises in old albums and 7" singles but there are plans to start selling selling new material.

Manager Dave Hill said it is young people who are passionate about vinyl records.

He said: "There's more to a vinyl album. Gatefold sleeves, the vinyl, the sound of it and people are buying turntables again, as well."

Meanwhile a new record shop, Langley Mill Records, has just opened inside an old carpet shop opposite the huge Asda development in Langley Mill.

And at The Bakewell Bookshop, you'll find a decent-sized music section stocking some weird and wonderful obscurities.

This report, from BBC Inside Out East Midlands' Tony Roe looks at the state of music shops around the region.
