Where do you buy classical CDs these days?

3 posts in this topic

I miss the days when you could drop by a record store and the knowledgeable staff could help you find a particular piece. Does such a thing even exist today?  Are we relegated Amazon, which has an impressive inventory but little direction?

if this type of curatorial service exists, I imagine only in Japan, Tokyo or another large city. I remember walking into Tower in NYC and there would always be knowledgeable sales staff to direct you, undoubtedly in their biased ways, but still guide you to a particular performance’s recording. We all know what happened with that music store chain. 
Before Tower there was a flagship Sam Goody’s in Times Square, a stuff of legends in regards to stories of the people who walked the floors there. I caught the very tail end of that, in the early 1990s.

That Tower down on lower Broadway was the kind of place I had in mind. Your description is on the money. Back then I could have never imagined that it would come to an end!
