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

Shangri-Las -  Give Him A Great Big Kiss

Today's Song of the Day is from those lovely ladies from Queens, the Shangri-Las - Give Him A Great Big Kiss.  A classic 60's Girl Group song, they were ably supported by Shadow Morton, who lead them to a number one hit with Leader of the Pack - the 'live' video for that, featuring Robert Goulet as the motorcyclist is priceless.  This song was later covered by Johnny Thunders, among others.
