John Coltrane Mug ShotThe Smoking Gun today published this previously unseen portrait of Jazz Legend John Coltrane.

Saying, "In our continuing effort to publish the previously unseen (and rather marvelous) military portraits of famous enlistees, here’s the official U.S. Naval Reserve photo of John Coltrane, the pioneering jazz saxophonist. Coltrane, who would later collaborate with Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk, was photographed in mid-1945 following his voluntary enlistment as an apprentice seaman (Coltrane was 18 at the time)."

Rolling Stone picks the Best Record Stores in the USA: The top 25 spots for unique vinyl and CDs, from San Francisco to Boston -- and we're on the list!

Amoeba Music
San Francisco, Hollywood, Berkeley

"Even in the days when record-store chains ruled the music world, nothing compared to Amoeba. It was, and is, simply the most thorough and welcoming place a record lover could hope to shop. Each of its three stores features more than 100,000 items — much of it surprisingly high-grade, and with loads of surprises and rarities around seemingly every corner. Which, as anyone who's been to any of them can tell you, is a lot of corners."

Thanks Rolling Stone and thanks to all of you for the continued love and support!
