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.

Strider Records Greenwich Village NYC

Strider Records - 22 Jones St., Greenwich Village NYC  10014
Store Closed

Bought some great records here while making my regular tours of the Village record shops.   Two of the best were a 45 by the Gentlemen - Come On and the Wailers - Out of Our Tree.  Both are supreme 60's garage.  The Gentlemen was released in 1966 on Cameo, while the Wailers were a long running group from the Pacific Northwest usually known for frat rock - but this was a great garage record. Pictured below is the store's owner Bob Noguera.  The singles were on the left, behind the counter, and the albums on the right.
