Changes In Latitudes Record Store Display 1977

Post by Tiki Torches »

No, there's not a lot to it and in all honesty, when I first saw this photograph I didn't even notice it. Still, a cool look back at a time when such things as record store displays existed. This comes from the now defunct Camelot Music store that was located in Berkeley Mall in Goldsboro, NC.

Great picture. I actually had to show my son what a record looked like the other day. I miss the days of playing LP's when I was young. There was something about that scratchy sound.

Vinyl has actually been making a comeback over the past 10-15 years or so which has been boosted in recent years by the popularity of Record Store Day which started back in 2008. Hell, even Buffett has gotten into the act by releasing Songs From St. Somewhere on vinyl. I feel very fortunate to live in an area (the Triangle region of NC) where record stores still exist. We've even had a couple used ones open in the past couple years that continue to do a brisk business. Vinyl will never be as popular as it once was but I'm glad it's still around as an option.

I'm getting more of a kick out of looking at those round plastic 45-rpm record cases on the shelf to the right of the poster display.
And yes, I've got one around here somewhere — probably still containing its stack of wax that hasn't seen the light of day in years.

A couple more displays from the same store, one for Foghat Live, the other for The Best of ZZ Top both of which also came out in 1977.

I had the box for 45's which had an index card in front so you could write all of your records on it, and alphabetical dividers. When I was in high school, if you wanted to go to a concert, you went to Jack's Music, and lined up with everybody else, waiting for the store to open, and bought your tickets through Ticketmaster, in the store, for about 17.00.

I miss record store display art; I've got a couple pieces knocking around somewhere, a cool Rush "Signals" poster, and a Dire Straits "Brothers In Arms" display that is in the shape of the guitar featured on the album cover.
