The store you refer to was at 86th and Third,I
was one of the people who pitot together. I

if time allowed.

Bryan Gregory was an employee of the Musical Maze record store between 84th and 85th Street on Lexington Avenue the store was located on the west side of the block.. This was during 1977 1978. I was attending Saint Ignatius Loyola at the time. After school I would walk home,but not without a visit to the musical maze. I bought the cramps human fly single from Bryan, who's working the counter. ALSO bought a copy of the bootleg titled look homeward angel by Aerosmith.

I worked at the 86th and 3rd location for a Time before becoming manager of the Times Square store at 1500 Broadway. To the best of my knowledge, Brian Gregory never work there.

I worked with Bryan at Musical Maze Again & Again (That was the full name of the store, the third in a short-lived chain started by the 23rd St. store.). Marcelo above is spot on about its location, so no need to say any more about that. When I left, Lux got my job. The Cramps were actually born in that store -- I believe they rehearsed there after hours. In a strange coincidence, I'd gotten a letter from Lux shortly after he moved to New York because he'd seen some things I'd written in Trouser Press (magazine) and thought we might want to hang out, since he didn't know anyone in NYC at that point. He also sent me a copy of Pere Ubu's first single 'cause he thought I'd dig it. Small world that he'd soon be working my former job at this store.
