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

Free - All Right Now

Today's Song of the Day is by Free - All Right Now.  A massive hit in 1970, this one is no secret - just in the mood for some good rock n roll.  Great bass line, great lead guitar, great vocal.  Sorry for the video, but couldn't find anything better with the right version of this hit.  Paul Rodgers, the lead singer, went on the form bad company.  Unfortunately, Paul Kossoff, the guitarist, died way before his time at 25.
