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

Happy Mondays - Step On

Today's Song of the Day is by the Happy Mondays - Step On.  From 1990's Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches, this is the definition of the Madchester sound, from the same Manchester England scene that gave us the Stone Roses.  This track, alternative rave dance music, with a heavy bottom, was a cover of John Kongos/Christos Demetriou tune "He's Gonna Step On You Again", and rose to No. 5 in the UK in 1990.  This is quite a cool video.  Is it just me, or is anybody Happy on Mondays?
