This is a really fun book that will bring back a lot of memories. Remember combing through record stores to find new music? Remember hearing a song on the radio and driving all over trying to find the 45? Kids now days... Feh! They don't know what it's like to not have every song ever created only moments away from their keyboard.
“There’s nothing as glamorous as a record store.” – Paul McCartney
In this era of digital downloads, the small, indie record shop might sound like an anachronism. But, in fact, record stores served as community centers, information exchanges, clubs, art galleries, and launching pads for numerous bands and record labels.Record Store Days takes a long, loving look back at the retail refuges that enthralled at least three generations of music lovers, providing a glimpse into the special alchemy that makes a great record store. Written and compiled by two record store veterans, this lively and nostalgic anthology includes photographs and reminiscences from musicians, music industry executives, former record store clerks, and, of course, avid fans.
