Seligman Brothers

Anyone else remember this place on Sylvania Avenue? I heard a couple of callers mention Seligman's on Fred's show this morning and was taken back to that musty, dusty place run by a pair of mild-mannered albino-looking brothers. I remember finding gems in there such as "Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine," the Doors' double-album compilation, and Kraftwerk's "Autobahn" in the early 1970s. Hey, Fred, put "Autobahn" on your bumper-music list, all 22 minutes of it.

I'm just putting this here in an attempt to get the "reads" number up.

Patience is a great virtue.

Seligman Brothers was doing very well until Bain/Romney took over sometime in the late 80's early 90's. They began closing parts of the business down, first the 78's then 45's and finally albums until all that was left was CD's. By then the buying public had moved on to iPods and MP3 players..

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

I remember when Bain Capital, using its Republican lackeys in Washington, forced through legislation compelling every American household to purchase at least two eight-track players (one to be installed under-dash in their cars) and at least five music cartridges. Dark, dark day in our nation's history. Thank God for the Democrats and their cassette tapes.
