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.

Generation Records Greenwich Village New York

Generation Records Greenwich Village NYC
    Open - 210 Thompson Street, Greenwich Village New York  10012

Here's a video of Generation Records on Record Store Day 2010 with a live in-store performance by the Budos band.  Surely makes you want to check out the Budos band, if not Generation Records.

Make sure you hit the basement.  I always had good luck down there.  I can still remember buying a copy of Wire - 154, and the Fuzztones - Leave your Mind at Home there, and many others.

And here's a link to an article in Glide Magazine in 2015 Vinyl Lives Generation Records New York New York Record Store Day 2015 Edition interviewing the record buyer at Generation, who describes its selection.
