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.

Song Of The Day

Rolling Stones - 2000 Light Years From Home

Today's song of the day is British psychedelia from the Rolling Stones - 2000 Light Years From Home  The you tube video is perfect, with the band performing the track on tape with some great psychedelic effects.  From 1967's Their Satanic Majesties Request - the one with the 3d cover if you've seen the original.  Brian Jones is still with the band.  The song has some great effects, but still the Rolling Stone beat to drive it.
