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.

Attic Records

Attic Records -  513 Grant Ave., Millvale (Pittsburgh), PA 15209
Open

Pittsburgh is blessed with more than just one (Jerry's) great record store.  Number two on the list is Attic Records which has a large selection of 45s (not cheap) and endless rows of meticulously organized albums (by artist) along with plenty of cds.  And you can try before you buy.  One minor quibble - the records are not organized by genre, so you need to know what you are looking for.



















Here is an article about the store Midvale Record Store Stays True To Its Roots, Keeps Selling Vinyl that appeared in the Trib Live on August 2, 2016,, and another Wiping Off The Dust At Attic Records that appeared in the Duquesne Duke.
