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

Bruthers - Bad Way To Go

Today's song of the day is a slab of killer 60s garage from the Bruthers - Bad Way To Go .  From 1966, this is prototypical 60s garage with a killer organ break and snarling vocals that failed to make any impact on its release.  This was the lone single from the Bruthers, who actually were four brothers (Delia) from New York.  One - Joe Delia - went on to a career in music, including as the musical director for Buster Poindexter.  But  I digress.  This is a favorite of anyone who loves 60s garage.
