question for oldsters about 1964

For all you oldies but goodies out there – do any of you remember how much records cost in 1964? I think I remember my 45’s at 99 cents, and an LP at $4.99, but I’m not sure. Would love to know. Hooray for the internet!

  1. Simpson's at Cedarbrae Plaza in Scarborough had them for 66 cents. I'm sure I recall albums at $3.99, but maybe those were the ones on special.

    I'm going with your memory, not mine, Chris. Though maybe things were more expensive in Halifax than in Scarborough … Thanks.
