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.

The Vinyl Resting Place, Portland Oregon

The Vinyl Resting Place, Portland Oregon
  Open - 8332 N. Lombard Street Portland Oregon 97203

Here's another one of the stores I visited on my trip to Oregon in the summer of 2014. A smaller store, it had a good selection of rock, jazz and blues, as well as some old 'collectors' items from the 60s and late 50s.  Definitely worth a visit.  It too was featured in the handy guide to Portland's record stores.  Love the name.
