New York City Record Store Memories (17)

This article is about the preferred areas and plantations on Hilton Head Island. A plantation is this context refers to a gated community that has its personal amenities akin to swimming pools, tennis courts, golf programs, procuring areas, leisure centers, and so on.

Another peculiarity about Forest Beach is its beach. As mentioned earlier, Forest Beach is an ungated area and therefore, open to everyone. As a end result, the seashore is probably probably the most crowded on the island. Due to this there are a whole lot of distributors on the beach which makes it easy to find no matter you want then and there. Thanx Spartucus…I see I’m not the only one who misses the days when you could spend a complete Saturday going from record retailer to document store, scrounging for long-lost goodies. Awesome, Alex! Yeah, I’m a baby of the Eighties so I’m simply getting into my midlife disaster phase now, haha. At least I got to benefit from the tail end of the file store era before all of them disappeared. Thanks for the remark.

Believe it or not, but the town I grew up in – Cincinnati – had a tremendous file chain known as Phil’s data that had more Metal discs in it that any place I actually have ever seen – Imports, new releases, used, vinyl, cd, picture discs, etc… Over the years their chain has been whittled down to 1 forlorn store with a tiny choice. It’s a bummer. The Sea Pines Club is a superb place to get pleasure from some meals and drinks followed by sunbathing and stress-free on the seaside. Even though the seaside is a good place to chill out it is not excellent for swimming due to the little fish and crabs floating around. This, however, can be a bonus for people who are interested by fishing. Two things about Folly Field that make it a great place for youngsters. First, its location and second, the truth that it’s a non-plantation space.

Hi Manny and Rock_nj – glad I might spark some reminiscences for ya. Back in those days, the joys of looking down that rare file or piece of music was almost as much enjoyable as listening to it!! I made it up to Bleecker Bob’s in March of 2003. They didn’t actually have much fascinating sadly, however at the very least I can say I went there. I also hit up the enormous Virgin Records megastore in Times Square. That place was wonderful. I picked up several Japanese imports, one among which was Kiss – Killers, which has a couple of additional tracks on it. Forest seashore is another ungated (non-plantation) space. In truth, it’s the LARGEST ungated area on the island. This is another good place to stay in case you are touring with youngsters as a result of you may be close to the largest procuring area on the island – Coligny Plaza. Second, Palmetto Dunes has World-class amenities: golf programs, 35 tennis courts and bike paths throughout.

Awesome hub! Growing up I would spend hours in different document stores. Now most of them have closed down. It is unquestionably unhappy to see part of your youth disappear like that. As document shops disappear from the landscape at a daunting charge, I really feel unhealthy for future generations who won’t ever have the ability to make Rock N Roll Record Store Tour reminiscences of their own. Screw on-line shopping, children. Get your asses into a REAL file store!! Hi Witchfinder – Sad to hear that you just did not find anything at Bob’s in ’03. It had been a few years since I’d visited there but within the 80s and 90s there was at all times something fascinating there in case you did somewhat digging, be it a demo tape by a neighborhood thrash band or a uncommon punk 7-inch. Since, Folly subject just isn’t a plantation and therefore open to locals and residents alike it has the feeling of a beach resort. Again, this can work to the advantage of teenagers as they will mingle with the locals.
