I hope everyone is safe and well, we say that so much over the years but never before has it meant so much so we really hope everyone is OK and keeping sane, especially as we are now in another lockdown and face an uncertain winter ahead, the first lockdown was actually good timing for HiFi retail as it was in the Spring / Summer which is always quieter but Lockdown 2 really couldn’t have come at a worse time as the 2 months up to Christmas are generally the busiest months of the year, which I’m sure will be the same for most retail shops, but onwards and upwards as we are all in this together and as long as we have our Music then the tough times will always be made a little easier to deal with.
Lockdown 2.0 Plan!
So during this Lockdown I will still be in the shop everyday as normal although obviously we will be closed for demo’s but as in the first lockdown if you’d like to discuss or order anything HiFi related please get in touch and as our home demo service was so popular the first time around we will start that up again so if you would like to try anything in your system at home and I have it here we will find a way to get it to you, may as well use this extra time at home wisely eh? Alternatively we can also offer the so called ‘Click and Collect’ route where if you do want to borrow anything just let me know and I can meet you at our door to hand over anything I have here for you to take home to try.
Bruce Springsteen ‘Letter To You’ A Real Treat from The Boss.
In better news, as a big Bruce Springsteen fan I have to say that his new album with the E-Street band ‘Letter to you’ is a real belter and is perfect way to beat the Lockdown Blues, for me it is one of his best albums ever, I think you have to be a lifelong fan to understand where he is coming from with it though as it is quite introspective with Bruce looking back over his career and his friends that have now passed as in ‘Last Man Standing’ where he is singing about being the last member of his first band, The Castiles, still alive, I particularly like that he has revisited 3 songs he wrote in 1972 but never got released, in ‘If I were a Priest’ his voice has never been better. Another stand out song is ‘Ghosts’ which is made to be played live in front of 80,000 adoring fans, I really hope that day comes soon as for me the biggest casualty this year has been the loss of live music, this is the first year since I was 14 that I have not been to a live concert, so 38 years of gigging, normality can’t come back soon enough as I can't wait to be chanting BRUUUUUCE in a stadium somewhere again like in the good old days that we all took for granted.
Most importantly please stay safe and well everyone and for any HiFi enquiries please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
All the best,
Paul, Wendy and Ady.
