Adam Went To New York And All I Got Was This Lousy CD

From April 2008*

One of the greatest pleasures in life has to be record shopping in New York. Records you have wanted for ever, records you never knew existed, and records you wanted to exist but thought they probably didn’t.So on my recent visit I was dismayed to find that so many of my favourite vinyl dustspots were now closed.

RIP Dance Tracks (yes, Dance Tracks)

Satellite Records (now a kitchen “Trade Only” shop)

Rocks In Your Head (been gone a while – now a real estate agent)

Vinyl Mania (ironic name) as well as The One Across The Road – can’t remember the name – still full of records but looking pretty closed, plus lots of great smaller stores too numerous to mention.

However, there are still some amazing things to be found there if you’re willing to look hard, and this mix is a compilation of some of the gems dug up on that trip. I’m also sending this mix to all the stores I bought records at, the pick of which I can recommend;

Bleeker Bob’s

118 West 3rd Street

New York NY10012

www.bleekerbobs.com

(CLOSED APRIL 2013 – NOW A YOGHURT SHOP)

Kim’s Video & Music

6 St Mark’s Place New York

NY10003

Mondokims.com

(CLOSED) Great story – https://tinyurl.com/ydff2tky)

Bleeker Street Records

239 Bleeker Street

New York NY 10014

(RELOCATED, THEN CLOSED – NOW A STARBUCKS) https://tinyurl.com/yb8yays4

*This was a low point for vinyl. It looked like it might disappear forever. Much has been said about the vinyl ‘revival’ since then – although the truth is these kind of proper old school record stores simply can‘t afford the rents in Manhattan nowadays.
