Village Records, Mill Valley, CA

I made my first trip to Village Records today and man, what a place. I picked up (all on vinyl) David Bowie's "Low", George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass" and Aretha Franklin's "I Never Loved a Man The Way I Loved You". This little shop has seen in-stores the likes of Elvis Costello, Carl Perkins, Doug Sahm and Nick Lowe.

I walked around for about an hour and a half flipping through vinyl, admiring the vintage posters and just soaking in the place. Well, of little surprise, Village Records will be closing its doors for good in September. As we all know, record stores like this are a dying breed. If you're in the Bay Area between now and September, I strongly urge you to check out this treasure.
