While on holiday in Poland, I visited :

Records Dillaz
Berka Joselewicza 11,
Krakow

Great little shop, friendly helpful owner, great for Polish Jazz, Rock & Prog. Picked up a couple of albums by Polish Prog band SBB. Seemed to be all second-hand, which is fine by me.

NOTE: Opens at 11:30

Vinyl Planet, Macclesfield, Cheshire, UK.
A great little shop, visited for my first time last Friday and loved the place. Neil is very helpful and very knowledgeable, a must visit for any record collector in the North West.

My daughter moved into a new house in Chesterfield and today I visited. I found a new (to me) record shop, Tallbird Records, came out with 14 records for £25, very happy. I will visit her again soon, and my daughter of course.

Been to multiple shops in the Twin Cities and it isn't even close. Mill City Sound in Hopkins is head and shoulders above the rest. It's not even close.

Quite a few good ones in the Los Angeles area.

Freak Beat Records - 13616 Ventura Blvd., Sherman Oaks

Great selection of new and used vinyl and CD's. Knowledgeable staff. Always a good selection of hard to find progressive.

Atomic Records - 3812 W Magnolia Blvd, Burbank

Very good used rock and jazz vinyl. I tend to find more in the jazz section than rock. Fairly priced.

Counterpoint Records and Books - 5911 Franklin Ave, Los Angeles

Seems to be a bit underrated compared to other stores in the area. Very good used rock, jazz and classical selection, and quite good prices. I especially like their 20th century classical section.

The Record Collector - 7809 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles

Very little rock. Specializes in classical. Great jazz selection also. Floor to ceiling records. Said to be half a million records. The owner/operator (a retired classical violinist) is a bit of a curmudgeon. Don't get him started on the "vinyl vs digital" debate, you won't get out of there for 2 hours. Prices tend to be a bit on the high side, but quality is always good.

Amoeba - 6400 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles

The best known record store in LA, and for a good reason. HUGE selection (in a huge store) of used and new vinyl, and CD's. Nothing over priced. Used vinyl is not always in the best shape, so be selective. Huge jazz and classical section in the back room.

Rhino Records - 235 Yale Ave, Claremont

Another store with a excellent selection of used vinyl in all genres. Has separate section for prog, which is a plus for me!

After an afternoon @ Henry Ford Museum had to drop off a UPS document package for work...... :)

Spied a Goodwill which happened to be right next to Dearborn Music :shock: :shock:

http://dearbornmusic.net/

Of course the GW didn't pan out, however, did walk out of Dearborn Music some with NIB R2R pre-recorded tapes at old LP pricing...... :shock: :)

No time to vinyl shop due to time constraints, however seems to be well reviewed online. Est 1956 though not at this location.

R2R you say, well gotta have some source material for resto work

Happy shopping

Fred

An absolute gem. The 'Record Album' in Brighton is just outside Brighton Station in the UK. Specialising in Vinyl only. It's run by the charismatic and incredibly knowledgeable George Ginn. It's been around since the 40's and focus's on Film Soundtracks on Vinyl and Classic music up to the present day. All stock is 1st class and pretty rare. It's used by worldwide collectors and famous DJ's looking for samples. Check it out here http://www.therecordalbum.com/about.htm. If you call in tell him Del sent you. A goldmine...
