When I stay at my brother’s house, I sleep in the shadow of his towering vinyl record collection – soul, jazz, rock, hip-hop. So many of these records were scoured-for at the legendary and gigantic Jerry’s Records in Pittsburgh. I bought most of my music at Jerry’s during college in the 90s, back when Jerry was still in a tiny 2nd-floor shop on Forbes Avenue on campus, and still sold CDs, cassettes AND vinyl. Bless his damn heart.
