Last of the Great Record Stores

Village Music has been a cultural institution in Mill Valley, California for over five decades, but on
September 30th, 2007 it shut its well-worn Dutch door for good. Often referred to as “the
greatest record store in the world”, Village Music has been a favorite hangout for local musicians and
record collectors as well as some of the biggest names in pop, rock, jazz, rhythm & blues. George
Lucas researched the soundtrack for “American Graffiti” at the store, and B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Tom
Waits, Ry Cooder, Mel Torme, Jerry Garcia, David Grisman and Elvis Costello are among the many
stars who have shopped there over the years.
