Mystery Train is also the name of a couple of used record stores
. There are three, as far as I know: one on Newbury Street
; one in Gloucester
, presumably the headquarters; and one in Amherst
. At one point in time, there was also a store near Harvard Square
; it has since disappeared into the annals of time
The Boston and Amherst stores both have a fine collection of used CDs, records of all sizes, and often video and audio cassettes. The Amherst store does a great job of supporting local bands and will often host small shows. Plus, the people who work there are very nice and hip and will occasionally compliment you on your purchases.
I've never been to the Gloucester store, and I'm not entirely sure it's related to the other two. But it's the store with the website; if anyone knows, /msg me.
