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.

Chob - We're Pretty Quick

Song of the Day

For today's Song of the Day we're going back to the garage to unearth the Chob - We're Pretty Quick .  Everything you want in a 60s garage punk song, snarling lead vocals, Farfisa organ, snaking thin reverb drenched lead.  From New Mexico 1966, produced by Lindy Blaskey who both produced some other fine garage singles (Burgundy Run - Stop) and recorded some himself (You Ain't Tuff (Baby)).  The original single is worth a pretty penny (or quite a few pretty pennies) as it is no. 139 on the G45 list of rare 60s garage singles.
