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.

In Living Stereo

In Living Stereo    East Village NYC (Greater Jones)
   Open  2 Great Jones St. NY NY 10012











A newish record store (is vinyl making a comeback?) that is an adjunct to a high-end stereo store.  Go for the record store experience, where the guy running the store - in this case Ramsey Jones - is playing some cool tunes you don't know (and want) and is happy to tell you about some more.  In this case The Entrance Band - Face The Sun.  Will return.  And will let you know how the other suggestions turned out.
