MANNY’S MUSIC ON MUSIC ROW (circa 1967)

Posted by Jim Monroe on May 13, 2015 at 12:30am 2 Comments

Do you remember

Music Row

Back when Manny’s Music

was the place to go

 

Man, that was Heaven

don’t you know

Just a subway ride away

to music row

 

I first heard ‘bout Manny's

when I was just fourteen

My guitarist Bobby said

We had to make that scene

 

So, unbeknownst to our parents

we hopped the E Train

from Kew Gardens to Times Square

and we scurried past the porn that used to cluster there

 

Walked crosstown

To Seventh Avenue

Then turned and headed North…

Henry was on to us..........

As we all know, in the mid to late '70's there were probably as many sales outside the stores as inside...One day, my friend John calls me and says "Hey, I'm going to 48th st. to sell my Telecaster...wanna' take a ride?" so I said yeah sure.....(we usually were there 4 or 5 times a month in those days)

After parking and walking up the block for about 20 minutes or so window shopping , we see these two guys standing in front of We Buy....they're looking at a Telecaster , so , John says to the kid..."which one you looking at?" so the kid points to a '55 or '56 Fender Telecaster and says "I always wanted a Tele but I can't afford that !!" (I think it was $800 or so back then......LOL).....anyway, John tells him "I have a '67 Tele right here for $175...wanna' see it?"....so the kid sits on the curb playing it for maybe five minutes and says "WOW.....nice guitar.....but how do I know it works?".....without batting an eye John says..."That's easy...we'll just go over to…

early manny's

Posted by Mitch Skop on December 29, 2014 at 11:26am 0 Comments

I clearly remember being 9 or 10 years old and my parents taking me and by 2 1/2 year old younger brother to manny's for a flat black lacquer Ludwig drum set.  a real beauty.  a snare, tom, hi-hat, ride cymbal and snare with a throne.  bought it from stu, who I believe was manny's son.  (my drum teacher ben halpern suggested we go to manny's).

and I recall that manny himself was there, working the crowd with his sales crew in that narrow store.

this was in the old store, before all the office buildings were on 48th st. and before they moved to the new more luxurious space up the street.

must have been back to that store 100 x over the following years, having switched to bass guitar and with my brother now playing 6 string.  a migration to manny's with members of whichever band I was in was legendary, something we always looked forward to days in advance.

all of 48th street was electric with music and musicians and…

48th Street Veteran

Posted by Paul Ulino on February 17, 2013 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

I only worked at Manny's for a short while, about 8 months, but worked on the infamous 48th street in NYC for about 16 years before moving west to Los Angeles. I worked at Alex Music starting in 1986(?), then We Buy Guitars, Sam Ash, Manny's, back to Sam Ash, and last, but certainly not least, Rudys. I knew Henry, Judy, the gorgeous Holly, Ian and Judd for many, many years. They were all great people and great to work for. Manny's should've been declared a national landmark due to their history and countless contributions to music and musicians. Very, very sorry it's no longer on 48th street. That store was a destination location for musicians from all over the world for decades and there will never be another place like it. I'll never foret the time's, experiences and mostly, the people I got to know while at Manny's and on 48th street. I am proud to call them all my friends.

I wish nothing but the best for the Goldrichs.

Love you all!

Paul "Beertruck"…
