Peaches Records and Tapes is one of my first experiences with music. It was the chain store to go to.

Vintage Vinyl (not a chain) was introduced to me by a fellow fan of music. He invited me one Saturday to go downtown to Soulard Market where these two guys set up a table with 3 ‘peaches’ crates full of used LP’s. They were fairly new, in perfect condition. I distinctly remember buying Blonde’s Eat To The Beat. It was kind of a trip to go downtown, so I didn’t do it much, but the guys business expanded so quickly they eventually wound up buying an old movie theater in The Loop, a very eclectic area primarily with college students. When I was heavy into music buying, this was the place to go. I go rarely now (I have nothing to do with vinyl any longer), but on occasion I do visit just to see how the place is doing. They are still going strong. Those days of flipping through the vinyl bins bring back so many great memories.


Logo is OK, not as cool as Licorice
