Record Collector – 358 Farnsworth Ave., Bordentown, NJ 08505
Next up on my tour of New Jersey’s finest was a trip to Bordentown, which features not one but two worthy record stores – Randy Now’s Man Cave, which I will cover in a later post – and the Record Collector – which I went to first because it closed first.
It was a fine record store with a larger space enabling it to have quite a bit of everything. But what really caught my eye were two rare soul 45s, The Temptations My Girl, and Martha and the Vandellas Dancing in the Street. I had never seen the Temptations single in the wild before (or anywhere for that matter).
Pictured below is one of the store’s owners – John Chrambanis.
