Very cool! I especially liked the hand-made sale signs.

Reminds me of the mid-70's when Atlanta's Peaches Records and Tapes was often an evening's destination for my group of HS friends. Wish I still had the peaches record crate. At least I still have all the vinyl I collected there.

Hey Brock, I still have 6 or 7 of the Peaches crates holding the albums I bought there over the years. My dorm was right down from it on Peachtree. When I started buying them an album cost $3.49 for a new release! We used to always go down there when an artist would show up to put his feet in the cement or just had a record signing. Met a lot of them down there, Beach Boys, Dolly Parton, Sea Level, Charlies Daniels, Hall & Oates, Outlaws, Steve Miller, Boston, Patti Smith, many more over the years. They would always sign their records and take a picture with you. The good old days!

I wish record stores like this were still around. I even remember in the 90s going to some places buying cds and really enjoyed doing that. It was fun enough just to look around, even if you didn't buy anything. Little kids today I feel are gonna miss out on that experience.

That brought back a lot of memories! Growing up I lived in a small town about an hour north of NYC and LP's in the mid 70's cost close $4 where I lived which was pretty expensive when you are making $1.80/ hr working a summer job. I used to take the train to NYC for $4 roundtrip and buy albums at a place called Disc-o-mat and buy LP's for $1.99 each. I used to come home from the city with 10+ albums sometimes saving a bunch of $$$ and be able to buy music I could never get locally as they only carried the big name artists. Those were fun times.

The difference between the multi-sensorial record store experience and digital music is like the difference between sex and pornography
