Record stores played and important role in our youth. We gathered, we shared, we demanded. A feeling now lost in the clusters of huge megastores. Like many other things, record stores no longer are personal.
Here is something very personal though… A private visit to my intimate music memories in time. If you wish to join, go ahead and enjoy!
Here’s my favorite song from the first ever record I bought back in the 60’s
And one day when I finally got this shipped from France I learned he died the very day. RIP Brel
On and off my life was filled with his tunes on and off stage.He marked many good & sad memories RIP my namesake
Rarely they showed her pictures in original.Only Greek we could hear loud as kids.& we were all in luv of course
Proof that “Καημος” sounds the same in every language, his records did but move us all the way
On New Year’s eve in ’89 I came across this in a store in Omonia. I’m in love ever since
He’s the reason I learned what “pin ups” means as a kid. He is still the ultimate artist
My taste in rock was single-handedly shaped by them. I’m forever in debt of Fripp
I find watching them live as a proof of being alive. RIP the incredible Bon Scott. By the way, that bears no disrespect for the great Brian Johnson, may he live long….
He might have been lost in the labyrinth of commercial failure, but to me, he’s one of the greatest composers of 20th Century
Contrary to common belief, I once was a teenager, too
If you’re old enough to remember junta days in Plaka, this would mean a lot to you
For me the best ballad ever written… A salute is in order for the “artist phantasomagical”
Best recording on vinyl ever so far, recorded the year I was born
“We all stayed home tonight” chez Cohen all our lives, with or without lovers
My hero, my spirit in action tells us miracles do happen even if you’re a hard line pessimist
Did you know we labeled this as “disco” when it first came out among hardcore rock circles? Funny huh?
No music history is complete without the greatest MC of all times: RIP Michael
She’s exceptional, she sings like few have ever done
Last, but not the least of course; she owns my heart for the longest time…
