Large DMG USED LP List for Early April, 2020 BLG's Covid19 Stay-at-Home Music Diary!


Greetings to all fellow prisoners at home in our own jails.

DOWNTOWN MUSIC GALLERY Turns 26 and Celebrates Longevity!

Monday, May 1st was the 26th Anniversary of Downtown Music Gallery! That’s right, you heard right! We opened our doors on May 1st of 1991 in the East Village at 211 East 5th (between 2nd & 3rd Aves), having no idea how long we would last considering that there were upwards of a hundred record stores in Manhattan alone at that time. Now there are less than a dozen!?! We are in our third location (13 Monroe St in Chinatown), for eight years now, struggling to survive but still providing creative
