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.

Feelies - Fa Ce La

Song of the Day

Today's song of the day is the Feelies - Fa Ce La .  From 1980's Crazy Rhythms, this was the first single off the album.  If you don't know the album, or the group, you should.  With a heavy Velvet Underground influence, rhythms are king, with the drone strum, and Anton Fier's drums, and a good interplay been Mercer and Million's guitars.   Many favorites here, and the band reunited in 2011 to put out a new (and good) album - Here Before - favorite song there is Time is Right.  Many fine choices on Crazy Rhythms, including the first cut - The Boy With The Perpetual Nervousness, and a fine cover of the Beatles Everybody's Got Something To Hide (except for me and my monkey).  Originally from New Jersey, always one of my personal favorites.
