#tbt 10 years since the #samtherecordman flagship store closed on Yonge Street, Toronto.
Taylor Swift’s Reputation album just sold 1.05 million copies in the U.S. over its first four days of release. Is this the last time a physical album sells over one million copies?

The giant spinning neon records. The creaky floors. A deep selection covering every genre imaginable. The weekly discounts and giant annual sales. From the time Sam Sniderman moved his business to Yonge Street in 1961 until its closing in 2007, Sam the Record Man was the city’s most iconic record store, a space where music lovers spent hours browsing the bins. Sniderman’s involvement in the industry went beyond retailing. β€œI can’t just sit on the sidelines,” he once observed. He promoted Canadian artists in the community and pushed for federal government support to nurture musicians. He also helped launch a recording archive at the University of Toronto, which grew into a collection containing over 180,000 items.β €

Good morning all. Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting and going record shopping with @harma808 in Belleville, Ontario as this city has the last Sam the Record Man. This store was a staple growing up and it was always a treat to hit up the flagship store in Toronto when it existed. I really have enjoyed being part of this vinyl community a) because I'm discovering so many new bands but more importantly b) because of the connections. Chatting with people, meeting people. I'll steal @harma808's line here. All because I decided to post a record. Love this community and looking forward to meeting more of you!  Oh yeah, we also bought some records. This one was a no brainer that eluded my collection. Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers "Damn the Torpedoes". Happy Sunday all ✌️️! #tompetty #tompettyandtheheartbreakers #damnthetorpedoes #rockandroll #Vinyl #lp #records #vinylrecords #vinyligclub #vinylcommunity #vinylgram #instavinyl #vinylcollection #recordcollection #recordoftheday #nowspinning #vinyljunkie #samtherecordman

So happy to be able to add to my Mark Knopfler collection today, courtesy of the last Sam the Record Man in Belleville, Ontario. Found this copy of 2015's "Tracker" and knew it was coming home with me. A beautiful nightcap of an album. #markknopfler #tracker #direstraits #samtherecordman #pioneer #recordplayer #recordcollection #recordcollector
The Instagram #vinylcommunity is a wonderful thing. After pulling out my record player almost a year ago and posting a few photos of records I was listening to, I started looking around for others doing the same. I had no idea it was "a thing", and was shocked to discover that not only was it a thing, but it was a whole big thing (which I realize I am now part of). One of the first accounts I came across was a guy posting as @teddybvinyl and we quickly realized there was a LOT of common ground in our tastes. We've been talking about meeting up for ages and the stars finally aligned today. We decided that Belleville, Ontario is roughly halfway between our respective homes, and that meant only one possible outcome: a pilgrimage to the very last Sam the Record Man. It was a fantastic day. We flipped through literally every record in the store and between the two of us ensured that Sam's would stay in business at least another day. What a fantastic way to spend a day, and all because I thought to post a photo or two of my records almost a year ago. #samtherecordman #vinylcollectors #vinylcollection #musicislife #records

Where the flagship Sam the Record Man store once stood πŸ™. It was THE place to buy music in the 80s.

Just discovered these photos I thought I'd lost of the demolition of Sam the Record Man in Toronto (2009?). Last pic is its replacement. I miss the ugly lot? #Ryerson #Samtherecordman #greyspace

Found a pin at the the Acton Trunk sale today.  One of the 5 record stores I shut down in four years.  I miss that industry.

From when Yonge Street was a wild and fun place to be. Cheap food, cheap second hand clothes, pinball parlors, souvenirs, and plenty of places to just hang out. This part of Yonge Street was literally dominated by the Sam's sign. #toronto #historictoronto #yongestreet #samtherecordman # #noctilux #leicam6 #film #darkroomprint
So while I am strolling down memory lane I might as well post another one. Sam The Record Man's sign during better days along Yonge Street, Toronto. People used to come from all over Canada and the U.S. to shop for music here. Replaced by a shiny new student learning centre for a nearby University with the promise that the sign would be restored and displayed once again...it has yet to reappear now years later. #samtherecordman #historictoronto #yongestreet #toronto #bnw #film #darkroomprint #gallery44

Cool street art. Who remembers Sam the Record Man? #streetartchat
I could spend all day here #saturdayvibes #samtherecordman
Ran into The @benreedmusic at #SamTheRecordMan.  He was the audio tech for one of my shows & his playlist was full of the classics.  @_bennyreed knows the bands in this photo & was clearly raised properly.  #ThisKidIsAwesome

The fact that #cranegirl was included on this Toronto mural, means none of us should ever stop chasing our dreams. Awesome new piece by @uber5000 // #ikeamonkey #views #samtherecordman #toronto #streetart
Did you see #uber5000 on #ctv #news today? His #Toronto #graffiti #art in #rushlane / #GraffitiAlley was featured. These were shot a couple of weeks ago before he added #drake on the #CNTower and #samtherecordman and the #bluejays #joeybats bat flip. #the6ix
Sam's at the Quinte Mall has some great stuff... including our new album. Check them out!
Oh... and mark Sept. 16 on your calendar... show announcement coming this week!

Found this old pic from a disposable camera of #samtherecordman 's autograph wall. I took it back then because Thom Yorke tagged it in his distinctive scrawl, but now I'm trying to make out some of the other sigs. I see Rick Danko from The Band, Ray Lynch (?), Joe (or Jim) Walsh, some Our Lady Peace dudes ... any others? #radiohead #thomyorke
