The Guy in the Groove

The Guy in the Groove


We stopped in twice over Spring Break. Once on the way to Colorado, once on the way back when every thing closed the next day. This was the highlight of my trip.
Picked these last week during my trip to Santa Fe. Listening to some of these now. Didn't get to meet Guy, tho. Very good selection and prices.
My wife and I vacationed in Santa Fe the first week of March and stopped in at your store and bought 3 albums, all albums are excellent. Is there a way to search you inventory.? In the future I would like to buy more however we live in northern Minnesota and would need to have them shipped, is that something you would consider? Call me anytime at 218-849-3086 or email me at [email protected]

Replacing Ringo? The Story Behind Bernard Purdie and The Beatles

I'd heard stories through the years about Bernard Purdie's claims of playing drums on Beatles' records. This gives a balanced and plausible explanation.

Sony Is Going to Make Vinyl Records Again After Nearly 30 Years of Not

I didn't realize they had quit pressing records... It's back in demand.

In 1961 Capitol Records issued an instrumental album as a lyric-writing contest. The record had 10 original melodies (pop, rock & roll, and country & western as noted on the inner sleeve) for which contestants would provide original lyrics. I've never found any followup info about winners. (Capitol had done a similar promotion in 1950, with only pop instrumentals.)

The Guy In The Groove received a phone call yesterday. A woman asked if this is the business that's having the "Prince" sale? I replied "No, but tell me about it." She said it's $29.95 for 100 color copies. Oh, she's not referring to the late musician but rather PRINTS! How did she get my number???

I've seen some fun captions for this photo...let's hear yours.
