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.

Long Island Vinyl Exchange

Long Island Vinyl Exchange - East Northport Long Island
Closed - 275 East Larkfield Rd. East Northport New York  11731

Came and went before I had a chance to know ye.  It opened in November 2009, but by the time I thought of going (East Northport is a looong way) it had closed.  Here's something to remember it by.










And here's an article that appeared in the Times titled Doing Business At 33 1/3 r.p.m.which interviews the store's owner John DeSimone.
