The Birthplace of Music

28 Feb

Well, it may not actually be the birthplace of music but for me, this building in downtown Fredericton played (and continues to play) an instrumental role in the development of my musical tastes, interests, and possibilities. 

Home to Backstreet Records, a shop I first visited with my Dad when I was twelve or thirteen, I’ve since spent countless hours digging through the shelves of music new and used, left, lost, and forgotten.  I can’t count the times I’ve dug through boxes of music fresh from distributors arriving in time for release day and others not so fresh,  sold to pay rent.  I bought my very first compact disc there and over a ton of vinyl and cassettes I’m sure.
