New York City Record Store Memories (9)

We’d normally end our tour (assuming we still had cash left) by hitting the massive Tower Records store at 66th and Broadway. Tower additionally had a retailer on 4th Street however the Uptown retailer was completely massive, with 2 sprawling flooring of music, books, and videos to peruse. To this present day, Tower is the only record retailer I’ve ever been in that was big enough to want an elevator!

For me this is the best setup as I can spend time strolling and enjoyable in a quiet place and go to Coligny Plaza after I am in the temper for some entertainment. I suspect I’m a bit older than you however I too miss the old file stores. We had a couple of good ones in Rhode Island the place my buddies and I would go and buy doo-wop data. By the way in which, even though I’m in my 60s, I love heavy metal – favourite group: Blue Oyster Cult. Keep rockin’! Third, there’s a three mile seaside that is open solely to Palmetto Dune residents and visitors and an eleven mile lagoon that’s unique to the plantation. This lagoon is a major attraction if you’re considering canoeing, fishing or kayaking.

First, it hosts quite a lot of occasions and activities in the course of the summers including reveals by the well-known entertainer Shannon Tanner. Shannon Tanner is great with kids and if you’re traveling with little ones then this facet alone ought to make you keep at Palmetto Dunes. Most of those packages and events are held at Shelter Cove which has various retailers and eating places. Folly Field has a seaside named Singleton that is still uncrowded for many times of the year because the folly restricts access to it from the north. This folly also attracts a whole lot of fish which makes Singleton a good place for fishing. There is known bar known as Coco’s on the beach which can be a excellent place to enjoy just a few drinks. I’ve by no means been to Cincy however I’m informed it used too have a reasonably respectable metal scene, appears like Phil’s Records was a reasonably candy place.

Believe it or not, but the town I grew up in – Cincinnati – had an amazing file chain known as Phil’s information that had extra Metal discs in it that anywhere I actually have ever seen – Imports, new releases, used, vinyl, cd, picture discs, and so forth… Over the years their chain has been whittled down to at least one forlorn store with a tiny selection. It’s a bummer. The Sea Pines Club is a great place to take pleasure in some meals and drinks adopted by sunbathing and stress-free at the seaside. Even although the seaside is a good place to relax it isn’t ideal for swimming due to the little fish and crabs floating around. This, however, might be an advantage for people who find themselves eager about fishing. Two issues about Folly Field that make it an excellent place for youngsters. First, its location and second, the fact that it is a non-plantation space.

Another peculiarity about Forest Beach is its beach. As talked about earlier, Forest Beach is an ungated space and therefore, open to everyone. As a end result, the seaside is probably probably the most crowded on the island. Due to this there are plenty of distributors on the seashore which makes it simple to seek out whatever you want then and there. Thanx Spartucus…I see I’m not the only one who misses the times when you may spend a complete Saturday going from record retailer to file retailer, scrounging for long-lost goodies. Awesome, Alex! Yeah, I’m a child of the Eighties so I’m just entering my midlife disaster phase now, haha. At least I bought to benefit from the tail end of the record store period before all of them disappeared. Thanks for the comment.
