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.

Tropicalia 2

Here is another fine playlist of Brazilian Tropicalia music.  From the late 1960s early 1970s, Tropicalia is a mix of Bossa Nova, Psych, and 60s Pop, with a whole lot of other elements thrown in the stew, like church, French and latin music.  General chaos and experimentalism is the order of the day.  This playlist veers more to Brazilian psychedelic music, and musicians who entered the movement after its founders.  Featuring  Sergio Sampaio, Fabio, Alceu Valenca and Geraldo Azevedo, Manduka, and Secos and Molhados, among others.  You can hear them all in a row by clicking on the first song, which will take you to a You Tube playlist featuring all of the songs.  Or you can click on any of the songs listed below and hear them individually.
