Default Addresses for some of the establishments...

I found a 1973 Denver phone directory...only the "L to Z" half of the white pages. I then spent about an hour looking up some of the places that have been brought up on this forum. I figure when a business is listed in a phone book that they provide an "official" spelling of their business name so here's the exact way they're listed in alphabetical order beginning with L...

LIFT NO. 3 4501 E. Virginia

MR. LUCKY'S 555 S. Cherry

PLAYBOY CLUB 1790 Grant

SCOTCHMAN MOTOR RESTAURANT 4960 Federal Blvd.

SKUNK KREEK INN (Yep...that's how they spelled Kreek) 2574 Baseline

STOUT STREET ELECTRIC COMPANY 1346 Stout

TULAGI'S 1129 13th Street and across the street was ROUND THE CORNER 1124 13th Street

ZANZA BAR 10601 E. Colfax

So, that's a sample of some exact locations for our fuzzy memories. If anyone wants something looked up including people just post it here and I'll get a reply posted back...remember just L to Z.

In that same 1973 phone book there is no Markels or Markles having anything to do with cars. I distinctly remember the place but the name escapes me...I want to say it was Richard's Motors but they are listed as being further south on Broadway. The dealer we're talking about was north of Evans on Broadway.

DShark is right. I can't remember the name either but I know the area well. Jim Bundy's restaurant was on the corner of Evans and Broadway in those days. Right across the street from that classic car place was one of Denver's best record stores IMO, Record Revival.

I wonder if someone somewhere has pictured downtown Denver's transformation through the years and wrote a book about it or something. I'd be really interesting to see that.

It was a cool little store. It started up around May of 1972 with about 100 eight tracks and 1500 albums in the place. And developed into a great shop! The only drawback to the place was the building itself. How it always passed code inspections I'll never know.

And that situation was the stores undoing around the summer of '95 I believe. I had already relocated to the western slope and I got a call from one of my collecting buddies who told me that the back wall of the building literally fell down to the ground. The burglar alarm went off, Denver police got there in minutes , and called the owner to guard his building and inventory. And this was about 3:00 in the morning! The owner eventually rented storage units for the lp's, cd's, and tapes. And that was the end of his business, sadly!

Damn, I forgot all about that. Now I remember walking by that building after that happened. It looked a mess.

Actually the store is still in business online.

Jazz Record Revival was established in 1978 by Thomas Burns when he purchased Record Revival which was founded in 1973 and was the first new and used record store in Denver Colorado. The original store was located at 2019 South Broadway in Denver until 1989. The Broadway store was world renowned for its selection of jazz recordings from all over the world and was visited by musicians and collectors, some who traveled half way around the world just to visit the store. It has moved several times over the last 20 years, first to Tiny Town, then Evergreen and it is presently located high above the beautiful mountain town of Bailey Colorado at 9000 feet, probably the highest record store in the world.
