New location:

Darkside Records

Arlington, NY 12603

5 minutes from the old place by car, 11 minutes walking according to Maps.

Manchester UK

I find Vinyl Exchange to be mostly overpriced, and the staff a bit....weird. A friend best described the place as esoteric!
Good ones in the centre are Vinyl Revival and Empire Exchange - haven't tried the others just yet.

My kids love the mystery bag. Mostly stuff you don't want,but sometimes good stuff. My daughter got a first pressing of Houses of the Holy by Zep and my son got a first pressing of Street Survivors by Skynard.

Down in Falmouth Cornwall at the moment and a couple of good record shops on the high street.

Jam Records - Reasonable number of used and new albums. Prices are good and the condition from excellent to fair. Enthusiastic young owner. Bought Tubular Bells and the Key by Joan Armatrading and very happy.

Sounds OK Records - All used albums and reasonable price and condition. Good selection of punk, new wave and alternative

Took my 12 week old Jack Russell Pup into one of my favorite record shops today (Vinyl Planet, Macclesfield) he duly christened the floor whilst I rummaged for records.

Hi, sesentados...What do you know about this place? :-k

https://www.facebook.com/Record-Sevilla ... 357187844/

Or these places in Granada, Fuengirola and Cadiz?

You know, you might have more places to look out there than you thought! Plenty of "tiendas de discos"!

And don't forget "librerias", "mercados de pulgas" and "tiengas de antigüedades"...Bookstores, flea markets and antique shops for all the English speakers out there! If you look hard enough, I'm sure there are plenty of vinyl records being sold right under your nose! :wink:

If you ask me, it sounds like a little road trip is in order! :D

Has anyone been to the Princeton record store in Princeton, NJ? I heard that it was amazing.

This guy is here in downtown. He spent years going around to the radio stations as they converted to CD and bought up the vinyl. Says he is sitting on warehouses. He pays nothing in a sale with little exceptions but if you are looking for something. He know a lot.

If you're ever cruisin' around Vermont and looking for a place or two to pick up some vinyl, check these places out. There are more of course but these are my favorites!

http://burlingtonrecords.com/ Just spent 3 hours here the other day and other than coming away with a first press of the Blind Faith album and finding a bootleg pressing of Art Supernatural Fairy Tales I also came away with about 40 records from the $1 and $2 bins. You've never SEEN $1 and $2 bins like this place. Not your run of the mill Mitch Miller and his Gang or roached Dan Fogleberg albums. No, I just upgraded an older copy of Zeppelin 4 with a trashed cover but nice record inside plus some 80s stuff that's not collectible, just fun to listen to... for a buck!

http://exileonmainstreet.com/ Used to work here as a kid and this place is running strong, just wish it was closer to me than it is. Great folks have been running it for over 30 years.

Anyone come across http://recordarchive.com/ in Rochester, NY? I was traveling through and found this place... I suggest you plan a weekend trip and leave your spouse at home unless they're into this sort of thing. I would love to make a pilgrimage here with some like minded folks!
