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.

Academy Records Annex

Academy Records Annex Greenpoint Brooklyn

Open - 85 Oak Street Brooklyn NY  11222

Not to be confused with the related Academy Records - located in Manhattan - nor with its prior location in Williamsburg - this version of the Academy Records Annex is located in Greenpoint, and well worth the trip.  It has plenty of used records to offer, two listening stations so you can try before you buy, and a large selection of recent arrivals so you can get a shot at a (relatively) new arrival before the other diggers find it.  Prices are reasonable too.
