    I used to go to The Village to buy bootleg vinyl pretty often. I don't recall going to his shop, though.

    I made some pretty great hauls back then.

    I recall seeing his ads in Goldmine back in the sunny long ago. Sorry to hear he is gone.

    It wasn't a store I went into often - the only thing I remember buying there was the CD of that first Magna Carta album! But I do remember browsing there a few times, and going to that pizza place next door.

    Didn't one of the Seinfeld episodes have a shot of Bleecker Bob's record store, where Kramer was trying to sell old records? Anyone know if that was a real shot of at least the outside?

    I saw that mentioned in the NY Times obituary, but I don't remember seeing it in Seinfeld. But I only knew of the location on Bleecker Street, apparently there were two different locations which I think came later. But you are correct.

    Ah, guess I should have read the obituary first. The episode was The Old Man. Incapacitated since 2001--yikes.

    He was quite a character. He was notorious for being really shitty to his customers. I used to enjoy going there and watch him scream at the patrons and throw them out of the store.

    Occassionally I would find hidden gems in the prog section. My biggest score was a NM copy of Blocco Mentale “POA” for $40. My hands were still shaking when I scurried out the door.
