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.

New Pornographers - It's Only Divine Right

Song of the Day

Today's Song of the Day comes from Canada's New Pornographers - It's Only Divine Right.  A Canadian supergroup led by Carl Newman, and ably assisted by Neko Case, Dan Bejar, and others, it started as a one-off side project, and (thankfully) never went away.  This is from their second album, Electric Version (2003) which is chock full of excellent indie power pop songs, as is their whole catalog.  Many great songs to choose from.  Today's offering is sunny indie power pop with perfect harmonies and ringing guitar. If you like this one, try The Laws Have Changed next.   And then on to Mass Romantic.  And then .....  Up first is the album version.  There's also a video of the band doing the song live at the 9:30 Club in Washington DC on June 22, 2010 so you can see what they look like.
