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.

Rocks In Your Head

  1. Thanks for the walk down memory lane. I grew up on Long Island in thr 80s and worked in NYC in the 90s. I went to many of the record stores you've mentioned, plus others whose names I can and can't remember (Generations, Second Coming, etc.). Was Stone Cellar in Roslyn a head shop?! I think I went to it once with friends. I lived a few towns over. I also loved Metro Records in Little Neck, it was my first import record store. It's now a comic book store, but I'm looking for pictures of it when it was Metro Records.
