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.

Village Music World Greenwich Village New York

Village Music World - Open

I may have stopped posting, but I never stop visiting record stores.  Here's one of the last of the Mohicans (a pretty good movie by the way, but I digress), a Greenwich Village record store still standing.  And on Bleecker street too.  Got a nice copy of Dexys Midnight Runners Return of the Young Soul Rebels.  Oh Geno ........

Here's a video shot on Record Store Day 2013 featuring a tour of the store.  You'll have to wait a couple of minutes for the tour to start, but while you're at it, you're listening to Marquee Moon by Television so its worth the wait.
