New York Record Shops

2 posts in this topic

As there is still lots of interest in record digging tales, 45 pricing via old sales lists and the like . . . thought I'd start this thread as there must be loads of great NY related stories (many UK soulies entering the US via one of the NY area airports).

My son lived outside New York from 1998 for about 5/6 years but although I visited a few record label offices (existing + old & long gone), met with some old soul artists, went to a big record fair (thanx to neighbor Greg Tormo),went to J & R's a lot to buy new stuff & for their artist showcases plus was taken on rekkid shop visits to a few locations by Kim . . .  I never really spent time visiting many old known record stores in the city (thinkin they'd long since been cleared out).

Here's a piece from Billboard to get us started .... 

So, please, lets have your old stories . . . .
