i am officially bummed out. newbury comics in amherst is no longer in amherst. when i moved there 12 years ago, there were three awesome record stores. all different, too. for the record was the artsy jazz and indie specialty place i never really shopped at, and then they closed a few years back after being in business 30 some odd years. mystery train was probably the best used record store i've ever set foot in. they had everything, ridiculously cheap vinyl in decent, if not excellent, condition. all kinds of rarer and out of print stuff would come in, often way underpriced compared to if you went and found some of that stuff on ebay. some of the used stuff from bigger bands bordered on the bargin bin albums that were generally regarded as those bands' not so good albums, but if you frequented the place it was incredibly easy to round up an entire back catalogue from pretty much any of those bands. they bought up other kinds of band-related crap, old fan magazines, books, and sold those for 50 cents/a couple bucks. i bought the whole box of u2-related crap someone had gotten rid of for almost nothing. i probably spent just as much money over the years there as i did at newbury comics, where sure you were dropping a little bit more cash for new cds, but when i was in high school there wasn't a single in-print album you couldn't find there. i'd go in looking for 5 things, and in the process of finding them i'd find 10 other cds i thought i needed. being a new england chain, i'd always be able to find new stuff when obscure boston bands put out albums, because they'd always get a couple copies. they were perfect for picking up all the punk rock stuff that i took for granted for so long that most people not living in a major city can usually only get if they order online or see that particular band at a show.

like i said, for the record closed. mystery train downsized to a shell of what it used to be and became cds-only, and mainly just stuff most people have heard of in the interest of putting out the stuff they thought would sell best in the limited space the new place had. i don't know if they're still there, i went once after they moved and found it too depressing to go back.

now, newbury comics is gone. i hear they moved to northampton, but i also hear it's a very tiny space, and i kind of don't want to go see what's become of it.

speaking of northampton, i think the last time one of these stores disappeared/downsized, it was one of the ones over there. i am pretty sure i lamented its loss in this thread (or a previous version of it). i know this is nothing new. it just sucks. it sucks a lot.

You're full of excuses, arrange them in chronological order RIGHT NOW.

i did actually put them in chronological order one time. it was interesting, but kind of made finding things a little akward at times.

i wanna go back to the one in norwood. OMG. had to go out to canton (i think that's where i went) to renew a certification for work cos i couldn't find a class closer, got a little lost on the way back to the highway and found myself on rte 1. so i headed toward norwood looking for that place, because i'd heard it was gianormous. and oh boy. did they have music. lots of music. lots of other crap too, but quite a nice music selection indeed.
