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.

Beatles - I Am The Walrus

Song of the Day

Today's song is one of my favorite psychedelic songs of all time, the Beatles I am the Walrus.  From the Magical Mystery Tour album.

Part of the charm of the song are its outlandish surreal lyrics.  John describes the genesis of the lyrics in this book excerpt.  Read it, as it will save you the trouble of trying to figure out what they actually mean!

Unfortunately, the music video the Beatles made to go with this song is not presently available on YouTube, so you'll just have to make do with the music.
