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.

Subterranean Records Greenwich Village New York

Subterranean -  5 Cornelia St., Greenwich Village NYC
Closed  
Where I bought Kenny and the Kasuals Live at the Studio Club, which by the way is a great 60s garage record of covers.






The New York Times published a story Vinyl Idling on March 13, 2005, which has an interview with the store's owner Michael Carlucci.

    So thinks...RICHARD HELL !

    This looks typical of the sort of thing Mike Carlucci at Subterranean Records on Cornelia St. in the West Village used to do. He made a few private compilations of first-wave CBGB people and bands and would press a few copies and sell them and give them away. The store closed down years ago.

    That's my best guess.
