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.

Record Reserve Kings Park Long Island

Record Reserve Kings Park Long Island
Open - 10 Main Street Kings Park New York 11754

On the annual summer pilgrimage to Port Jefferson, we passed thru Kings Park and to my surprise, found Record Reserve, a used record store with a nice selection.  A second room in the back features discounted used records for a buck.  Good selection of old rock fairly priced.  And everyone loved the dog in Port Jefferson.

  1. Record Reserve has moved to Northport, NY.

  2. Do they still also have the Kings Park store, or are they just in Northport? I'll be out there this summer and will post an update of the new digs. Thanks.
