Now Open: Memphis and Shelby County Room Listening Station

listening station

Today we are pleased to announce the addition of a Memphis Music Listening Station to the Memphis and Shelby County Room. This listening station, which contains 594 CDs, will allow easy patron access to our large archive of Memphis Music.  This listening station contains materials representing every stage of music written and recorded by Memphians and in Memphis.  From the Memphis Jug Band, to Justin Timberlake; from Memphis Minnie to Packy Axton; classical, country, jazz, soul, rockabilly, R&B and more can all be listened to and enjoyed in one spot. Additionally, many rare and out-of-print albums are included in the listening station along with local independent releases (of course, Elvis and Stax are here too!).

Feel free to browse through the Guide of available music and come by anytime to listen to some great tunes!

  1. I recognize the setting, if not the librarian (or is it a customer?) — 2nd floor of the old Main Library at 1850 Peabody, Art/Music/Recreation Dept.’s LP collection.
