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.

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.

Gimmie Gimmie Closes

Gimmie Gimmie Closes

Recently went to the Village for some record shopping.  While I saw some good stores I had hoped to visit Gimmie Gimmie.  Unfortunately, Gimmie Gimmie has closed its doors in the East Village.  An article on the closing can be found in the blog EV Grieve, titled Gimme Gimme Records Is Closing After Sunday.  OK, so I spelled the name of the store wrong - I'll have to fix that.

The store is opening anew in LA.  An article on the new store can be found in The Eastsider LA.  The new store is located at 4628 York Blvd.  in LA.
