ERWIN MUSIC (the record store) is back on EBAY.  Some of you may remember Erwin Music, my record shop on Wentworth Street in downtown Charleston, 1987-1996.  We were the only store of our type in the Southeast - huge blues, reggae, world music collection...first on LP, later cassette, later CD.

I still have much of that library / inventory and now, in the interest of downsizing, am selling merchandise on EBAY.  So far I have listed a lot of CDs:  Latin, world music, reggae/Caribbean, blues, jazz, Celtic, folk, and various other goodies.  Over a thousand items in the store as of year end 2020.   Great condition, amazing variety, and fair prices.  We also take offers on all items.
