Record Shop Memories

Standard

Back in the day–since you asked, that would be 1972–I attended Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn. At that time, the “campus” was several buildings in various parts of Brooklyn: Crown Heights, Fort Greene. Near our main building, which was the old Brooklyn Prep on Crown Street in Crown Heights, was a little shop on Carroll Street that sold incense, jewelry, hair beads (I had long hair then but no, I didn’t use beads) and… RECORDS! I spent a lot of time in that shop chatting with the owners, whose names I’m sorry I don’t remember, and of course, buying records. Oh, and taking fuzzy photos–here are some that I came across recently. (Click on photos to enlarge.) Happy memories–I can still smell the incense! In the photos I see some of the albums that I bought at that shop… and still play. I’m just sayin’…
