Sam the Record Man
I read that the Sam the Record Man store on Yonge Street in Toronto is closing at the end of June '07. I visited it 2 years ago, right around that time. Sad, I never got there in vinyl days - but they did have an impressive jazz selection - I got an UZEB CD that no other store in Toronto had for sale. Also, even 2 years ago, they were no longer turning on the big neon lights - which was just as well, as it was hotter than all hell during my first (and so far only) visit to Toronto. When I can find the photos I took of Sam's, I'll post 'em. R.I.P. yet another record store. Toronto, I feel for you. We're still smarting from the loss of all those Tower Records stores. Now you have to go to Japan to shop in a brick & mortar Tower store. Which I will do in a few weeks.
