|4:55||Need a bag that you can just fit an impromptu record purchase into.|
|9:24||“By which I mean, I’m very proud of your work ethic.”|
|11:50||See that’s the bit I can’t do. Messing around is one thing. Repeating it when you find something? Impossible.|
|14:26||Too early in the film for a Backstreet Boys reference!|
|17:22||Envious of their studio and instruments and talent. But otherwise fine.|
|27:04||What the hell is a whoopie pie?|
|29:29||“We’re the real deal kiddo.” Cute!|
|29:58||Is step four of his action plan… profit?|
|35:53||How can she possibly tell if he’s cheerful or not?|

|58:37||$62,000?? How is that possible?|
|1:09:56||It’s so quiet, the end of his store.|
|1:20:00||Loving the tunes but her mic technique sucks.|
|1:30:24||As usual, Ms Collette underused.|
Really lovely film, this one. A beautiful little indie work featuring the wonderful Nick Offerman. I liked that his character had plenty of challenges to work through, and had his moments of sadness, but it wasn’t a morose film, there was a lot to like and be happy about.
Of course, the music was brilliant and the studio was envy-making. I even cared about the fate of the record shop, even though I don’t really care about vinyl.
There was nothing to dislike about this one, I just recommend it in every way.
