Abstract:

Record storeowner George Daniels was born on December 12, 1946, in the Bronx, New York and grew up in Chicago. He earned his A.A. degree at Luke Junior College in Chicago. Daniels entered the record business as a janitor at Chess Records in Chicago. There, he met many music legends, including Etta James, Ramsey Lewis, and Muddy Waters. He was hired at a black-owned record store wholesaler on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue, where he learned the retail business. In 1969, Daniels took over a failing record store on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue. For the first three years there, he was its only employee while working sixteen hours per day. He went bankrupt and was evicted twice, but his store remained opened and operating and he renamed it George’s Music Room. Known for his artists’ store visits that featured artists like Mary J. Blige, LL Cool J, Al Green, R. Kelly, Alicia Keys, and The Temptations, Daniels opened a branch at Midway Airport and when that closed, it reopened at Chicago’s Navy Pier.
