Call Rainbow Music

Rainbow Music is one of the last available independently owned music stores in NYC. I’m proud to say that I’ve purchased a few CDs from the establishment in the past few years. Though, if my purchasing habits are any indication of the overall public that visits the store – they need more business to survive.

I was looking for the Philip Glass orchestrated “Dracula” CD as performed by the Kronos Quartet. After going to Circuit City, Best Buy and Borders Books & Music, I had no luck in finding the CD. So I decided to call Rainbow Music. But they weren’t there. What I got was the most entertaining voicemail of all time, it reminded me of Buzzo’s Music at Geneseo, where I went to school.

My suggestion is that you go to the store, talk to the owner and if you can’t do either, call when the store is closed so you can hear their awesome voicemail recording.

McCartney Comes Full-Circle at Billy Joel Concert at Shea

Last night was Billy Joel’s final concert at Shea Stadium, and Shea Stadium’s final concert. Shea has as much history as a concert venue, as it does for being the Mets’ ballpark.

But the best piece of history was made at the Billy Joel concert last night, when Paul McCartney closed the performance with the Pianoman with “Let it Be”. For it was in 1965 that 55,000 Beatles fans packed this same stadium for its first concert — the Fab Four! So it was that Paul McCartney came full circle last night at Shea!
