Blue Note Record Shop has been in the community for 70 years.

Located at 156 Central Avenue in Albany, the music store specializes in vinyl and sells modern albums too. 

Blue Note was founded by the current owner's parents, and he says generations of families make their way down to the store as a tradition.

The business booms even more during the holidays thanks to iconic Christmas bops that are still alive today. Owner Biff Pock says there's no coincidence sales are higher during the holidays. He says listening to classics is even better on vinyl.

"That’s what mostly what the holidays are about. You know, being with your family, reminisce about the wonderful memories, and enjoying the holiday spirit. And that's the beauty of vinyl. And it becomes a wonderful memory,” said Pock.

As for Pock's favorites, he says nothing beats classics like White Christmas and the Charlie Brown Christmas album.
