The "best" Music Store ever!

Postby blueslover » Thu May 05, 2005 3:34 am

[updated:LAST EDITED ON May-04-05 AT 11:35 PM (EST)]If you live in the Bay Area or planing to visit, this store is a
"Must".

Plan a lot of time, because you don't wanna leave. Don't know how much money and time I spent there.

Browse through the sites. Here is the link:

Have fun....

It's great to have really good Local Music store.

My favorite local store does me really good.
I recently bought a NEW Gibson SG for $50.00 less than Musician's Friend's price.

My favorite online store is http://www.americanmusicalsupply.com

I can tell you story after story of their amazing Customer Service and how they've treated me over the years.

They are my ONLY choice for online Music gear.

It's a record store, and it's not bad.


Out of the way, though.



The really great record store in the Bay Area is Down Home Music

The home base for the Arhoolie and Yazoo labels (great old Blues reissues)

Some of my favorite CDs (other than the ones by BRB members) resulted from browsing through the new and used CDs at the local store and finding things I'd never heard of. My guiding principle is always that if it has a resonator guitar on the cover, I buy it.

Unfortunately, the CD store in Paducah--the only source near me--is gradually phasing out their blues section. Last time I was there they had dropped from nearly 200 CDs in the "blues" genre to about 75. The owner told me they just weren't selling. Seems I'm about the only customer that goes straight to the blues section.

Browsing with a browser just isn't the same.

I haven't been in a CD store since last Labor Day Weekend when I took Doc over to our local "Cheap Thrills" to get the latest
Ray Charles disc.

I've found a better way to get my music.

Over here in Antwerp, we don't have such nice stores like you have.
There big, that's all.

Here in beautiful sunny downtown Sheffburg, we have the inimitable, grinning in the face of adversity type stylings of Rare and Racy.
They sound like a double act, and by most acceptable definitions of the term, they are:
