About Sound It Out (from the shop website)

Sound it Out Records has existed for many years, hidden away in the back streets in Stockton On Tees, which is situated in Teesside, back when the shop was first open this area used to be known as Cleveland. Alas Cleveland is no more and the many great record shops that used to be found round these parts have (for the majority) passed away to the great high street in the sky. Many can be found online under various guises and on re-seller sites such as Gemm, Music Stack and on rare occasion Discogs. We too operate on many levels and the shop now deals with online sales as well as the traditional cash and paper bag types.

We have accounts with Gemm, Discogs and have been trading on eBay for a bit as well, where we have a store set up please look us up we are the seller “sound-it-out-records” (link opens in new window).

Those of you who may have visited the store at some point will know that we stock everything from Abba to Zappa, and everything in-between (even the occasional classical piece too). There truly is something for everyone. We like to think that we provide a personal touch that you won’t find on the high street.

Does your local major record store know exactly what you are listening to and what artists you MAY end up liking? No? Thought not.

Welcome home.

    […] Speaking of record stores we saw “Sound It Out” last weekend a great independent film by Jeanie Finlay. A documentary about the last record store and its’ customers in Teeside, UK. A moving and funny film. Thanks to Mary and Robert for loaning it to us. Although it has taken us 6 months to finally watch it. For more info on “Sound It Out” click here! […]

    Sat and watched the film last night……best hour I’ve spent in ages. Lovely to see someone DOING what I’ve always dreamed of doing – owning a REAL record shop! Sadly too late for me now (54!)as the nearest I’ve come is selling vinyl at carboots and yes, even there, you meet the characters and you get repeat visits from people that you’ve helped find something that they’ve been looking for. I’m living down south but my family on my late Mum’s side come from North Ormesby and I still have family in the area so who knows, one day when I’m up there I’ll come looking for you!
    Congratulations on a business that’s more of a service than anything, keep going – people need you!

Glimmer Films in association with Sideshow present a film by Jeanie Finlay; SOUND IT OUT.

Over the last five years an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days.

SOUND IT OUT is a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, North East England.

A cultural haven in one of the most deprived areas in the UK, SOUND IT OUT documents a place that is thriving against the odds and the local community that keeps it alive. Directed by Jeanie Finlay who grew up three miles from the shop.

A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, the North and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives.

High Fidelity with a Northern Accent.
