list of Dead Indie Record Stores and Head Shops

20 Feb

In my younger days, I spent a lot of time in record stores & head shops, from about 1973 to 2010. Sometimes I think I love the record stores more than the records themselves (and you know how much I love records). I still look/looked up to the store owners, weird and ornery as they are/were, they are my heroes. Hats off to ‘em! I’ve talked to a few folks over the years, and I’ve compiled a list here. This is a work in progress, and I’ll update it from time to time. Please feel free to post comments below with new entries.

Ed. note: Ha! While researching this, I made a few prank phone calls to stores out in the hinterlands, just like I did when I worked for ADA. Man, I miss calling record stores on the phone! I’d ask stupid questions like ‘”Is this the record store? Didja get any snow today? Are you open now?” I’m impressed how many stores are still open out there, I love to see them surviving in 2011.

Here are the ring binders with the contact info of hundreds of record stores that I assembled while working for ADA 1996-2007. Most of the info above was taken from these books, glad I kept them until now.

    Holy cow what a list… you could add Rockit Records to the Minneapolis list – she moved three times: Harmon Place above Let it Be, on 24th & Lyndale where Muddy Waters is now, and West Lake St. & Irving if memory serves me. In my more ancient memory banks there is Humble Sounds – 50th & Bryant – unless I’m making that up! It was the 70’s, after all.

  2. Tony B February 21, 2011 at 12:57 pm #

    Haha…glad to see you got River Flow on the Hastings list.

  3. mjp February 21, 2011 at 4:32 pm #

    Three Acre Wood was an awesome hole in the wall (and they had a comprehensive and creepy head shop on the other side of 7th, next to the old Best Steak House). I pestered them every day for two months waiting for KISS Alive to come out (“No, it isn’t out yet! You don’t have to call every day!”). First heard the New York Dolls (and a million other things) in there.

    Northern Lights and OarFolk being gone doesn’t seem like it could be real. The St. Paul and Minneapolis that I knew were chewed up and spit out a long time ago. But they were pretty awesome. Especially the ghost town that was downtown St. Paul.

    Here’s to progress!

  4. gojohnnygo February 21, 2011 at 10:04 pm #

    I thought of two others today: Record Run in North Minneapolis & CD Cellar (sp?) by Lake Nokomis in South Minneapolis. I’m gonna add those.

  5. gojohnnygo March 4, 2011 at 11:11 pm #

    I found a list of Co-Op Records locations from the mid-70s Illinois, Iowa, and even one in Wisconsin and included ‘em on the list above, and found some custom record sleeves with store logos, scanned & and posted them tonight, enjoy.

  6. gojohnnygo March 6, 2011 at 11:18 am #

    I just thought of Twisters in Lincoln & Kearney, Nebraska, adding ‘em now to the list.

  7. Hoss March 12, 2011 at 12:08 am #

    Here’s a couple more…Record Service in Champaign & Normal, IL…AppleTree Records in Springfield…plus a couple from central Indiana: LMG (Lick My Grooves) and Slatewood Records, both in West Lafayette.

    BTW, Harpo’s was in Bloomington, not Richfield (on 98th, just east of Lyndale)

  8. gojohnnygo March 15, 2011 at 9:08 pm #

    Today I found evidence of another store in Mankato, MN, I’ll post it on the list with a logo.

  9. Jeremy Saperstein March 25, 2011 at 11:30 am #

    As an ex-resident, I cansay firmly that the Co-Op in Beloit is actually in Wisconsin.

    They also had a location in Janesville.

    BTW, it was nice to see the early Skeleton Ed tracks (which I’m actually on!)

  10. Nate @ Zzz Records March 26, 2011 at 3:24 pm #

    Hey John, Long time/no talk. I know you’ve been in the biz for a while, but I can’t believe you can remember all of these! Here’s a few more for Iowa: STORM LAKE – had a 2nd branch of Rainy Day Music in the early 90s; IOWA CITY – Real Records (just closed at end of Feb 2011, unfortunately); SIOUX CITY — didn’t they have a punk store about 10 years ago? can’t remember the name, though; DES MOINES — Vinyl Fetish (before my time) WEST DES MOINES — Slipped Disc (pretty sure that was the name, was around for maybe a year or so around 2003)

    • gojohnnygo March 26, 2011 at 3:31 pm #

      Thanx, Nate, I’ll update it now.

  11. Jeremy Saperstein March 28, 2011 at 9:06 am #

    I just recalled that the Co-op location in Beloit became Denzil’s Music Emporium, which lasted another few years,

    Hello from Rainy Day Music. You can reconnect via my Facebook profile, or page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/saintstevensthingerycom/177547452307785. We continue to offer various artifacts from the store on the Internet.

    • gojohnnygo October 20, 2011 at 6:25 pm #

      thx Steve, I’ll put a link on the list too. -Johnny

  13. Steve Ross October 20, 2011 at 10:51 pm #

    Also, Rainy Day Music, Spencer, Iowa was preceeded at the same location for 17 years by Merrie Melodies, a store of true distinction, operated by Terry Heinrichs.

  14. bob diener March 29, 2012 at 12:12 pm #

    Record Swap in Champaign Illinois is not closed and never was (‘cept on xmas day, new years day and july 4th). We are not on campus (since 1999) but there are no record
    stores on campus anymore. We are located at 114 E University Ave. – easy walk from
    campus.

      Yes, there are at least 30 record stores still in existence in the Twin Cities, this blog post is for the “dead” record stores….-Johnny

    John, What a trip down memory lane….

  22. spencer July 19, 2013 at 11:41 am #

    There’s also Vinyl Fever in Tampa, FL – or, rather, there *was* also Vinyl Fever. It’s been closed two years now, after a three-decade run of general awesomeness. I can send you a photo of the place if you want, since I worked there right at the end.

  23. Carole Ostlund October 17, 2013 at 5:26 pm #

    You missed Headquarters in Hopkins…and Wax Museum had a store on the West End of Hopkins, as well.

  24. Carole Ostlund October 17, 2013 at 5:26 pm #

    …Minnesota, that is.

    • gojohnnygo October 17, 2013 at 5:35 pm #

      thanx, adding now…

      • David Beckey April 3, 2014 at 3:02 pm #

        Carole, my family moved near Hopkins about a mile and a half from that Wax Museum, 1973, they had just closed, so I never got to go in there! Great page, Johnny, thanks!
