Just this past weekend, Geoffrey and I were discussing (read: whining about) how rare it is these days that either one of us gets very excited about a new band, and how much time we spend loading our favorite classics onto our iPods. With most of the local record stores now closed (RIP Virgin Mega Store), it’s really challenging to find records from bands I loved growing up, but whose music I somehow neglected to buy when it was new. Thank god it’s really never too late to find all of your forgotten favorites, because I just discovered a cool online source for Oldies Music at a site called i-Oldies Music Store. i-Oldies Music Store has over 15 million songs to choose from in online archive of classics from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s! The site features a fun search interface that looks like an old time Jukebox and all you have to do is type in a favorite Band, Song or Album and the results come right up for you to browse through. You can even search by the year a song was released, which is cool if you’re ever putting together an oldies play list for a party. The store also sells new releases by classic artists such as Glen Campbell’s latest release, Ghost on the Canvas. I can already tell that i-Oldies Music Store is going to become favorite destination for me. Check it out and bookmark it when you get the chance!
One thought on “Build Your Classics Catalog with i-Oldies Music Store Dot Com!”
There are so many interesting new-ish bands to listen to (The Parlor Mob, Radio Moscow(!!), Buffalo Killers, to name a few) and a lot of those listed have a very old school, classic sound! Although I thrive on what’s new/next, I also love listening to oldies. Thanks for the rec!
