There is an obituary in today's New York Times. "Franz Jolowicz, the owner of the former Discophile record shop, a Greenwich Village institution that was for decades a mecca for classical record collectors... died on Nov.8. Writing in the New York Times shortly before Discophile closed, Tim Page called it 'possibly the finest record in the world.' " Prior to reading the obit I never heard of the store, but it is certainly an interesting read.
I also remember this store on West 8st in the Greenwich village area of NYC. Loaded with vinyl EMI, Decca, Harmonia Mundi , and much more. I just wish a store like them existed today with the price of then.
