This is from reader and friend Jeff K.:
I was a patron of Sal Nunziato's great
Manhattan music shop, NYCD, so I was thrilled when i found his blog on
the web and sorry that he's no longer updating it. For months before he
shut it down, I'd been pestering Sal to set up a forum like this one,
the idea being it would replicate in the cloud, the atmosphere in front
of Sal's shop by the tall desk behind the door. There, Sal or his
assistant would be sitting, and they'd either smirk at your purchases or
congratulate you on your taste, and as they toted up the bill, you'd
gaze longingly at the bootleg boxed sets that hung on the wall.
The front of the store was where there'd be a discussion about which
Emmit Rhodes album was better, the first or the second, or whether
Fleetwood Mac ever recovered from the loss of Peter Green, or maybe it
was about a band in town or about how little Sal would pay you for your
used cds. I miss that place, and I miss Burning Wood, so maybe we can
give it a shot here. Let's talk music, maybe review something new or
old, post a few lists and argue a few points. But a few rules. First,
keep it clean, no hitting on the breaks. Second, feel free to post a
link to any music, but please host it on your server. I didn't buy a lot
of space on this forum.
So come on in. the place is open 24 hours.
