I built this page for two friends of
mine Ken and Sandra (no last names please). For many years my
favourite vinyl shop was a place called "The Record Store" located
here in Calgary, Alberta. It was owned and operated by them. The
Record Store was a place where you could go and hang out, have a
coffee or a beer (in the back room of course), listen to great tunes,
have an intellectually stimulating conversation and find just about
any recording you were looking for. In the early 1990's the larger
record stores (HMV, SAM'S, A & B Sound) starting to put the
squeeze on the smaller independent stores like The Record Store. The
volumes those larger chains were able to buy and sell at eventually
caused many independent record stores to go out of business. In 1995
Ken and Sandra finally had to close the doors of "The Record Store"
for the final time. They said their goodbyes and moved from Alberta
to Northern Ontario to run a hunting and fishing lodge. This was a
very sad day for many of us here in Alberta.
This "Old Dino-Rocker" is jumpin'
for joy because Ken and Sandra are back in the Record
In the fall of 1996, they opened T-Rex
Records here in Drumheller,
Alberta and are back in business.Ken's
knowledge and passion for music is truly amazing. He can usually tell
you who, when, where and how about most any artist and their music
form. He is in my humble opinion a true "Musicologist". I'm not
forgetting about Sandra (his better half). She is (as all who know
her) "the woman that keeps the train on the tracks". She works
quietly behind the scenes and makes sure the business runs on all
cylinders. Together they make a great couple and have a fantastic
business partnership. T-Rex Records is located in "The Badlands of
Alberta". Home of the internationally acclaimed "Tyrell Museum of
Paleontology". Dinosaur country for those
of you who aren't aware of this "ne plus ultra" Canadian research
centre and exemplar Museum.

Ken and Sandra have always shown
exceptional support for the independent recording artists of Alberta.
At the old store in Calgary the "Indie" section was always well
stocked and easily accessible. I'm happy to announce that they are
carrying on this fine tradition with their new store. Don't forget
T-Rex Records will always treat you more than fair when selling or
swapping your Compact Discs and Vinyl.
