Folks, going to be in Rome, Venice etc starting tomorrow. If you know of any worthy record/cd stores, please do share a couple of names.

Thank you.

Funny, I see my name here is "vodka". It was Trane before. How's that possible?😂😂😂

If you happen to be in Florence, there's the Twisted Jazz Shop in the Oltrarno part (other side of the Arno - Borgo S. Frediano, 21R) - not cheap at all, but excellent selection! It's right next to Santa Maria del Carmine (with the Bancacci Chapel), which is one of the must-see places anyway ... and you can then go for "trippa" (chitlins kinda stuff - if you're into this type of food, it's amazing!) at Il Magazzino, just a couple of hundred meters from there (I also tried the fantastic lampredotto at Il Nerbone in Mercato Centrale - took me a while in there to find the stand, but it was more than worth it ... check out this site if you're into it: https://www.visitflorence.com/eating-and-drinking-in-florence/florence-street-food.html)

Was offline for most of the week, finally someone came by to fix the connection today ...

In case Bologna is planned, too (don't miss the "sette chiese"!), I checked out three stores there, none really great, but I found some discs in two of them (one wasn't really worth the visit but I'm not sure which one that was):

- Discorama (Via Dè Monari, 1 - www.discoramabologna.it)

- Disco d'oro (Via Galliera, 23 www.discodoro.it)

- SEMM Store (Via Guglielmo Oberdan, 24 - www.semmstore.com)

I think the third one was the one I felt afterwards like I could have, should have skipped (I think it has more of today's hipster vinyl stuff) ... even more so as to me, in Italy, music shopping really takes a back-seat with me ... in Milan, there is an amazing classical store that I would return to, but there is so much to see everywhere, spending time in music shops is really (almost) a waste of time!

and as for Florence, that should read "Brancacci" of course - it's a marvel! I bought a ticket in advance (did the same for a few other places - won't help you with the Duomo alas, as there entrance is free and everybody has to queue) and had to be there at a certain time, thus ... but it's definitely worth visiting:
