In this era of digital downloads, the small, indie record shop might sound like an anachronism. But, in fact, record stores served as community centers, information exchanges, clubs, art galleries, and launching pads for numerous bands and record labels.

The new book Record Store Days takes a long, loving look back at the retail refuges that enthralled at least three generations of music lovers, providing a glimpse into the special alchemy that makes a great record store.

Written and compiled by two record store veterans, this lively and nostalgic anthology includes photographs and reminiscences from musicians, music industry executives, former record store clerks, and, of course, avid fans.

Gary Calamar, president of Go Music, is a Grammy-nominated producer and music supervisor for his work on HBO's Six Feet Under. He is currently overseeing the music on some of the most acclaimed and popular shows on television: True Blood (HBO), House (Fox), and Dexter (Showtime). Gary has also chosen the songs for the films Varsity Blues, for which he received a gold record, Slums of Beverly Hills, and After the Sunset. He was recently featured in the Los Angeles Times.

Phil Gallo has been a music journalist and entertainment editor for 25 years, most recently overseeing music news and reviews for Daily Variety and Variety. He has written for publications including the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, and Daily News Los Angeles. He also contributes to the websites The Wrap and LiveDaily. Gallo has appeared on Hardball with Chris Matthews, 20/20, CNN, Headline News, and the BBC to talk about issues in the music industry.
