Definitely was nicer

In those days. My most memorable shop was in Bangor, ME (35 miles away from where I lived at the time, so not exactly close by), where the folks would know me when I came in, I'd run into them at shows, and they'd always know what to recommend that would hit my particular sweet spot. And you could talk music for hours.

Not exactly the same as the ITunes "Genius" and Amazon's "recommended just for you" algorithms. Not the same at all.

Dean: How quaint!

To actually have a record store of some kind around you... I live near big chains and can get almost anything cheap, but not in vinyl.

To folks who have an indy record store in your area, help keep'em in business.

I still have vivid memories to this day of picking Terrapin Station up at the "Beacon Shops" on N. Main St in Providence. I wrote a review for the RI College newspaper, "The Anchor" --wish I'd kept a copy of it.,

Those were the daze.

Samplers

Freebie CD samplers I picked up on Record Store Day last weekend. Have heard some very nice cuts from Cracker, Clem Snide, Jackie Green, the Bodeans, Joan Armatrading, and a host of others I don't know/never heard of. Well, maybe not a "host." Maybe a "smattering." A few, in any case.

Unfortunately, my local independent record store (Record Exchange in Winston-Salem) looks like it's in the throes of a going-out-of-business sale, even if they aren't saying so. Very bare shelves...though the used vinyl bins look good. Picked up good-plus copies of "Steal Your Face" and George Harrison's "33 1/3"

Will be a shame if these guys go down the tubes.

Dave W-I just got finished

Dave W-I just got finished Listening to 8/6/74 Aud Recording Roosevelt Stadium. I think that was an awesome Concert. I especially Liked Row Jimmy and Scarlet Begonias. The great thing about The Grateful Dead is each Concert is a unique listening experience that you can hear over and over again and still Hear something that you never heard before. The Dead were such an awesome band in their time.
