Now you can buy the vinyl that NASA gave away for free to the aliens.

While researching the past of the College Park RTX, I came across two old Post articles of interest:

November 11, 1979, The Record Biz -- After the Crash

CBS, the undisputed leader in wholesale sales in the $4.1-billion industry, cut the list price on more than 350 albums from $7.98 $5.98.

The dawn of the "Nice Price" era.

Buddy Poms, owner of Sights and Sounds Records in Gaithersburg, and many others of the more than 100 store owners in the area....

More than 100 stores?!?! :o :o :o

June 20, 1997, RECORD TIME

Contains a long list of area stores that existed 20 years ago.

Nice.  I'd forgotten the name of Sights and Sounds.

Anyone remember the name of the record store in Wheaton Triangle (not Phantasmagoria)? I can only remember it as Backstreet Records but I'm not sure that's right.  It was a frequent stop when I used to bounce around MoCo looking for stuff.

There was a shop in downtown Bethesda, too, and I can't remember the name of that one, either.

Joe's has been in 5 locations by my count but never in Wheaton Triangle.

Backstreet Records is quoted in the 1979 article.

Yung Wu (offshoot of the Feelies) LP "Shore Leave" will get a reissue this year.
