This event will be held at our Clement street location.
Please join Green Apple Books in welcoming Josh Rosenthal, author of The Record Store of the Mind, on Wednesday, November 18th, 2015 at 7pm at our Clement St. location in the record & fiction annex (520 Clement St.). He’ll be joined for an in-store performance by artist & talented instrumentalist Richard Osborn, whose record will also be for sale.
Grammy-nominated producer and Tompkins Square label founder Josh Rosenthal presents his first book, The Record Store of the Mind. Part memoir, part music criticism, the author ruminates over unsung musical heroes, reflects on thirty years of toil and fandom in the music business, and shamelessly lists some of the LPs in his record collection. Crackling with insightful untold stories, The Record Store of the Mind will surely delight and inspire passionate music lovers… especially those who have spent way too many hours in record stores.
Celebrating ten years in 2015, Rosenthal’s San Francisco-based independent record label Tompkins Square has received seven Grammy nominations and wide acclaim for its diverse catalog of new and archival recordings, including music by William Tyler, Alice Gerrard, and Frank Fairfield.
