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.

Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin - Spirit In The Dark

Song of the Day

Today's song of the day is a smokin' live version of Spirit In The Dark by Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin  Taken from Aretha's double album Live At The Fillmore, this is part of Aretha's performance of that song at this concert.  If you want to see the whole 25 minute version, which also features Aretha doing the song first by herself, you can see that here.  Soul doesn't get much better than this.  The band is crack.
