Records are Dying? Not Here. (The New York Times, 11/21/2013)

Excerpt:   Rough Trade NYC, on a not-quite-postindustrial block of North Ninth Street, near the East River, is the kind of place that most music fans had given up hope for in New York: an airy 15,000-square-foot temple to record retail, with a coffee counter and a 300-person-capacity performance space with a bar that will present concerts almost daily.

Vinyl memories from 1973.  Arthur Gee-Whizz Band.  City Cowboy.  (I still have a vinyl copy and the cassette tape on which I recorded it.)
