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

Aimee Mann - Save Me

Today's Song of the Day is Aimee Mann - Save Me.  From the soundtrack of 1999's Magnolia, it is accompanied here by a great video, shot by the director of the film after the closing of various shoots for the movie.  The video features the movie's cast, in the movie's sets, with the addition of Mann singing Save Me.  Quite cool.

It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song (it would have won if I voted), I would call it adult alternative pop, its a great song featuring a rubbery bass that would fit right in on a Beatle's record.

Magnolia's soundtrack features a number of Mann songs, including her cover of One, and Wise Up, both worthy of repeated listens.
