Ghosts of Record Stores Past and Present

Much of my youth was spent hunting for and playing vinyl. I have created this site to remember many of the stores I've visited. Don't try and visit them without calling first, as many of them are no longer with us. If I've posted a picture of a store that you want me to delete please let me know and I'll take it down. To see a particular store just open the photo album with its name on it or click on the green (open) or red (closed) marker in the map below. Expanding the map will reveal more stores in the same city.

The site also contains links to interesting articles and information on record shops and record collecting and fine musical suggestions and playlists for your listening pleasure (with You Tube links so you can check them out for yourself). The Playlists can be found by scrolling to a separate section of the index under the heading musical resources. And our latest addition, Song of the Day, a glimpse at what's playing on my stereo today, appears there as well.

Permanent Records

Permanent Records - Brooklyn NY
Closed here - but (maybe) open over there.

Nope, not here anymore.

And closed here too in Northport Long Island.

But (apparently) open here, upstairs, at 159 20th Street, South Slope, Brooklyn NY.  At a minimum, they still sell records online. 

Here's a story in Mashable How Many Times Does A Brooklyn Record Store Have To Reinvent Itself about the store's latest move to new digs.

And here's an article in the Brooklyn Vegan Permanent Records Opened In South Slope Location Today from October 2014 announcing the opening of the South Slope store.
