Track Records, the independent York shop on which three generations of youth have converged for their top-of-the-charts hits, is to close its doors in Goodramgate - defeated by the internet downloading revolution.

Track's Doncaster shop opened on St Sepulchre Gate in about 1987. The town briefly had Track, Our Price and Andy's, a Peterborough based chain that had a burst of expansion in the mid 80s as well as the venerable Fox's. HMV also opened a store in about 1989.

I loved that place, cheap cds at the back!

Best job ever. Paid peanuts, but the perks such as gig tickets and stock at wholesale plus vat was always a perk! Had three stints there between 89 - 2001, broken up by Uni and then traveling. Loved every minute of it
