Recently, Mr. Lucas offered us some 20 titles, most at reduced prices. Only a third of these discs are in print: Tzadik Cuneiform and some on the newer Knit label. The rest are long out-of-print and hard to find. Hence, DMG is having a large GARY LUCAS CD Sale. We have from 1 to 5 copies of each title here so check your supply since many of these will disappear into ebay Hell after we sell out of any or all of what we have left. Gary Lucas is an old, dear friend and I am glad to support his effo
Mr. Perelman recently cleaned out his basement and decided to have a big sale. Listed below are 35 titles! Most are single CD’s at $10 (retail price is around $16-$17). There are a couple of double and triples as well.
The wonderful Munoz family is now moving to Virginia and recently donated quite a bit of Munoz’s back-catalogue to us. So we are having a big sale and will do it in two parts, this week and next week. There are now upwards of 50 releases: LP’s, CD’s, cassettes and DVD’s.

Saturday, May 1st was the actual anniversary of Downtown Music Gallery, 30 years to the day! I am immensely proud of all we’ve accomplished since we opened out doors on 211 East 5th St. in the East Village. Special thanks to all of the well-wishers who’ve written to us or come down in the past month, we do appreciate your kind words of support!

Last Friday, May 1st, was the 29th anniversary of the modest beginning of Downtown Music Gallery. We opened our doors on May 1st of 1991! Our first store was at 211 East 5th St., around the corner from Cooper Union. Our rent was cheap ($750) and the store was not very big (750 sq ft). There were two owners, David Yamner & Steve Popkin, and I worked for them 6 days a week. Their plan was to sell Used CD’s and vinyl while I promoted Downtown/Progressive/Avant Jazz, what I dug the most. There wer
