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.

Other Music

Other Music Greenwich Village NYC
Closed - 15 E. 4th Street New York New York 10003

I heard the sad news that after a 20 year run, Other Music had decided to close its doors (and mail order too).  I remember it as the small store opposite the giant Tower records (which it outlasted) and went to pay one last visit before the end.  There was always alot of traffic in the store, and today was no exception.

The Times published an article Other Music Record Shop, Yielding To Trends, Will Close that discusses the history of the store with its owners and their reasons for closing it.  A sad day indeed.

Here's a You Tube video of Other Music by Big Review TV, so you can get a better idea of what the store had to offer.
