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.

Clockwork Records

Clockwork Records - Hastings-On-Hudson Westchester New York
Open - 24 Main St., Hastings-On-Hudson, New York  10706

Not all record stores are dying.  Here's a new one that opened about 3 years ago.  Didn't have time to give it a proper dig, but they had plenty of records, including picture sleeve 45s, packed into a store featuring a Clockwork Orange motif. You remember the futuristic record store scene in that movie, don't you?  By our Beethoven loving hero?  The store's owner (a nice guy) is pictured below.  In the immortal words of Arnold "I'll be back."

Here's an article that appeared in Rivertowns Daily Voice with another picture of the store's owner (this time the front of his face) titled Clockwork Records Finds Vinyl Niche In Hastings in 2013 at its first address.
