Al Bums Closes

It's the end of an era.

I was one of Al Bum's very first customers back when Dennis ran the place and it was located in an old garage behind Colonial Bakery. In fact, I might have been THE first customer. Gee, that was like 30 years ago. I think I may have bought the "Live at Circe's" compilation album... or maybe it was a used copy of the rare crushed velvet edition of the Bee Gee's "Odessa", or it might have been an awful album by a lame rock group called "Nantucket". I can't remember, exactly... but Al Bum's had them all.

Over the years, I followed old Al to his various locations around Worcester. In the end, he just couldn't compete with downloads. Al Bum's will be missed.

It's too bad that Al Bum's closed. There have been too many cool Worcester places that have gone this way.
foo. :-(
