After Richie Phillips and I expressed our feelings about missing the days of browsing through Compact Discs, we thought it would be nice to remind music lovers in the Albany Area about a few shops still offering the experience of shopping for CDs and Records.

The Last Vestige Music Shop, 173 Quail Street, Albany, 12203

The Blue Note Record Shop, 156 Central Avenue, Albany, 12206

DiVinyl Revolution, 454 Broadway Saratoga Market Place, Saratoga Springs, 12866

Fuzz Records, 209 Lark Street, Albany, 12210

River Street Beat Shop, 197 River Street, Troy, 12180

Here are a few other suggestions for your next road trip-
