    Sorry I’m late to the party, but the record store across from Wieboldts was Rolling Stone and then Rose Records. Or in reverse order. Hope that helps Jim Gilbert.

      Are we talking across from Wieboldts on School St? I thought that record store began with an M like McDonalds or something. Rolling Stone was and still is at Harlem and Irving. Was it originally someplace else?
      I liked the Pot head’s record store on Devon by Kedzie. Don’t know what it was really called. My sisters and I just called it Pothead’s

    $2.99 for new releases.. I still have most of them.. of course, I have more CDs nowadays with numerous overlaps…

    Even have a numbered White Album and a blue triangle Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon..

    Still tend to buy sets of groups.. just bought 3 cds of Down N Outz.. basically a Mott the Hoople cover band.. they may suck.. but.. no guts.. no haggis..

    A good guess…I loved Blu Note. Anyone remember name of record shop on School across from Wieboldt’s?

    Is that not Blu Note? I could cry.

      I think it was… used to go there every week and buy about 10 albums.. just got the entire catalog of various groups at a time.. then Jim and I would go to his attic and try to play some of them..

        I still envision the owner….Purchased quite a few albums at $3-$4 bucks a piece….for some reason, due to economic downfall, I sold my collection to Brenner. He still pisses and moans that I actually signed the covers…little does this ungrateful ingrate know the value of these albums now. Richard and yours truly (ME) spent so many hours listening, playing and recording music. A good memory for me (yours truly…again!).
