During the days before the CD changed the way we listen to music, the Disc began to create an atmosphere in Mystic that would lead to a music and art renaissance. The tiny store was stuffed with vinyl records, serious collectors, kids looking for new sounds, local musicians of all flavors , and curious onlookers. Even as the CD became the prevailing format, LP records remained . In a world slowly losing sight of tradition, the Disc became and remained a pillar. The small burg now had an epicenter, around which began to orbit an interesting music scene, a flourishing gallery element, and small publishers creating chapbooks and journals. Much of this period is captured on “Trapezium”, a CD compilation put together in 1996 by Curland and the Disc featuring music, photography, and design from Mystic.“Our local customer base has made us what we are, and that is why it’s so important to have a symbiotic relationship with them, and the region in general” Curland states about his involvement in the local culture. In addition to the shop, Curland has also been a DJ on WCNI 90.9 FM radio for over twenty years. This nurturing element has been a mainstay for the business, as electronic connections have enabled generations of Mystic music lovers who continue to shop at the Disc to this day. “We have regular customers who call or email us about records they are looking for from places as diverse as Cape Cod to Willimantic, CT. From places as far away as Hawaii and Amsterdam. From ferry riders crossing Long Island Sound, to vinyl tourists from cities such as New York, Baltimore, and Boston. Mystic Disc customers are everywhere, and more are joining the ranks each week.As downloading and file sharing became more prevalent, record store seekers continue to find the Mystic Disc. Boasting over fifty feet of vinyl record bins in their 300 square foot store, the Disc caters to most every taste in music. In addition to the standards, they also carry an extensive section of esoteric vinyl for the DJ or producer. Spoken word, soundtracks, DJ resources, compilations from several time periods, and world music all find a place to call home. If you are a music lover, so should you find a home at the Mystic Disc.Depicted in the images: - Photos of the store and the sign- Autographed memorabilia from from friends of the store ex: Beastie Boys and Stevie Ray Vaughn- The owner's 1969 Woodstock tickets from attending the festival as a teenager

Brass City Records & Old Tools | Record Store

Brass City Records & Old Tools

Address: 489 Meadow St, Waterbury, CT 06702, USA
I've been selling music for thirty one years right here in the shop and 10 years before that at record shows up & down the east coast and Europe.... We have loads of vinyl and inexpensive cds. While the sixties are my specialty, we have quite a lot of punk, metal, new wave, jazz, fifties, folk and R n' B. There's a big bin of $1 records in the back room...and a large bin of FREE records as well...while we're on the subject of prices: Throw away your price guides because I don't use 'em. I think they're highly over rated and way over priced. I don't want to have a museum here and everything is priced to sell. Some of my customers actually have made a comfortable living selling stuff on ebay that they bought here...that's all part of the circle and more power to them...they come back and buy more...everybody's happy...I've got listening stations set up for vinyl and cds so you're not buying a "pig in a poke". You buy these to listen to...not to look at; so I guarantee each and every item I put out. Sorry no "flavor of the week" stuff here; we're not a maul store and don't want to be..This is the largest indie store in the state and it does take quite a bit of time to see everything there is to see. I really should re-locate to New York City or Boston, the stock is that good! But, here I am in Waterbury the back ass end of the universe.... So it goes...I do buy large collections of vinyl...give me a call or drop me a line...The Brass City Tool Shop I sell records for a living but I have a passion for woodworking and old tools. I really enjoy sharing both with anyone who will listen, and sometimes even people who will not listen. I own the only record store I know of with a functioning, though small, woodworking bench. I offer some fine wood working tools, most over 75 years old, and some well over 100 years old. They all still do what they were intended to do. Most were made right here in Connecticut within a stones throw of where I sit. The tools that I sell are tools that I would be proud to have in my own shop, or that I do have in my collection. I clean for use . Blades will be sharp and ready to use, but it's up to you to put the final touches on the bevel. Soles will be flat for use but not polished . Please send your requests for tools and parts. I've got so many I couldn't possibly list them all. I guarantee all the tools I sell 100%...money back guarantee, just like the old days. Payment by cash, check, money order, charge card or paypal.I only buy tools that I would be proud to own. I look for good "bones" ie: solid castings, good wood, and functioning mechanicals. I also buy old woodworking tools, particularly pattern makers and jointer's tool chests. If you have had a family member who worked in this trade please contact me. I personally collect scraper planes and spokeshaves. Walt Q...brass@snet.net 203-574-7805 if you call, please give me a few moments to get to a phone...this place is pretty big...Any and all galoots are always welcome at the shop...drop by and try out some of the tools. ..if you're traveling through Connecticut; I'm 2 blocks off I-84 exit 21 or route 8 exit 32. Call or e-mail for directions or slap the address into mapquest.

Johnny's Records | Record Store

Johnny's Records

Address: 45 Tokeneke Rd, Darien, CT 06820, USA
Johnny's has been in business since 1975. Originally begun by the owner John Konrad as a way to channel his overactive libido, Johnny's rapidly became famous and infamous from coast to coast as a place where music, imagination and life meet in a psychedelic blend of pranksterism and outlaw humor. Former employee Moby once said, "Johnny's is the kind of place where I could lose my mind if I could only remember where I left it." Ronnie James Dio told Johnny his jewelry was groovy. Two of the four original members of Kiss chaporoned their ladies down Johnny's aisle. The late Gilda Radner contemplated buying a pair of vans sneakers but settled on a floppy hat. Mystics and rabble rousers are constantly seeking out Johnny. It's not just that he knows the history...he's glad to share it with you.
