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.

Song Of The Day

Isaac Gracie - Last Words

Today's Song of the Day is Isaac Gracie - Last Words.  If you are reading this blog, then you are likely to do what I do, which is listen to and search endlessly for new music to listen to - as one record store artfully said the thrill of the hunt.  Well, if you do, this is one of the songs you are thrilled to discover when you stumble upon it, a near perfect folk song that reminds me of Bon Iver's Flume or maybe Tim Buckley Song For Janie. It is reported that Isaac Gracie recorded this on Garageband. It's on an EP Songs From My Bedroom released in 2016. Recorded as a 21 year old from England.




For good measure, here is Tim Buckley's Song for Janie from 1966.
