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.

Good Records - East Village New York City

Open - 218 E. 5th Street East Village New York  10003

Good Records Record Store East Village New York City

Recently went into Good Records on 218 East 5th Street, New York in the East Village.  A happy find.  Nice store with good selection, reasonable prices, and a turntable to listen before you buy.  Found Hoboken's own the Feelies first album (first press), that I've been looking for for a long time, a second press of Nick Drakes 5 Leaves Left, and a Japanese copy (with Obi?) of the Amazing Bud Powell on Blue Note.  Happy hunting.

Dig the arty photo, eh?

Here's a link to DJ Funktual's Record Store Walking Tour #3 of the store in 2010, which will give you a better idea of what it has to offer.
