In the mid-'60s I was a budding adolescent guitar player and hung around Sherman Clay in Manchester Center quite a bit. I'd buy strings and picks there -- and play their cool electric guitars & amps as much as Mel, the manager, would tolerate. Wish I'd had the money to buy up some of the used Gibson Les Pauls and Pre-CBS Fender Strats & Teles they had for sale cheap. They sold records there too, and I bought my copy of The Beatles Sgt. Pepper album the first day they got it in -- in early June, 1967. I took that album home and played the grooves off of it, learning the chords and riffs from every song within about a week!

My grandmother, Linda Privett played in a band based in Ethel Starr's shop, called the Starrliters. The family is doing some research and we're just looking for anything from that era we can find, pictures, stories or if we're lucky maybe some recordings. Thanks for anyone who can help.
