Product Description

Publisher: Sterling (Feb 2012)

Author: Gary Calamar and Phil Gallo

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--now availabe in paperback--includes photographs and reminiscences from musicians, music industry executives, former record store clerks, and, of course, avid fans.
